It's been connected. I don't know if I have to do it repeatally or flip the cable upside down. It does work fine over the years until I've struck a virus in my computer (The error message that wont show the Icons). And I was wondering is it possible that the Computer Technican screws up my drive by replacing the old CD-ROM with the new CD-ROM drive
I don't what's the problem but I did try something like this yesterday.
First, I reconnect the floppy cable and nothing. Then the power switch and also nothing. Then I tried to delete the standard drive by going to "My Computer" then "Properties" then the "Device Manager tab and floppy disk controllers". Next is "add new hardware" in the control panel and it forces the computer to restart after those changes. Still don't work.
Redetecting the floppy disk controller should resolve any addressing problems with the controller by detecting the correct address range. If my floppy disk controller is not detected correctly, there may be a problem with my floppy disk controller. If the floppy disk controller is redetected but you still cannot access the floppy disk drive, then there is a MAJOR problem.
And I don't know anything about "other" connections of the drive. Do I have to open up the drive to see the problem or what?
