Floppy Drive noise
When I ran diskscan this evening on my XP, my floppy drive started to make a grinding noise while the scan disk was running. I stopped the computer and restarted it, and the noise continued. I inserted a disk and it made a noise like it tried to read it, and remember that scandisk was running. When i took the disk back out, the noise continued. What would be causing that noise? it stopped once the computer ended scandisk and rebooted. This has happened before on me, twice. IS there a fix i'm overlooking? I never use the drive anyways, could I just unplug the powersource and unplug it from the motherboard? If i do unplug it, I just then disable the floppy drive in the device manager.....right? I have no idea, i just know it's making noise, and I really dont even need it anymore. what should I Do?
