Default Floppy drive light on

I have just built a new computer with a KN1-Sli board. I have noticed that the operating light on the floppy drive is on constantly when it wasn't on my last computer.

Why is it constantly on? Is there something wrong?

Hehe yeah you just have the cable plugged upside down into your floppy drive. Just pull it out, flip it over and plug it back in.

I've seen 1000000 people make that mistake.
