Default 3 1/2 floppy

Hi everyone.

Sometimes when I try to use the floppy drive, an error message pops up saying that no driver has been installed! What do I do?

get the newest drivers from the manufacturer, or go into device manager and have it automatically update drivers with your support cd in.

AMD 64 3400+ s939 / ASUS A8V Deluxe (K8T800Pro) / Kingston Dual Channel DDR 400 (2 x 256) Corsair Value DDR 400 (2 x 512) / ATI Radeaon 9600XT / Seagate 120 GB/

If the South Bridge cannot detect a floppy drive in the FDD slot, then that means u have a hardware problem. Those kind of drivers are pre-programmed.
