Yea i realize these are cheap, but yea well im cheap.... Anyway my floppy drive the light shows up on it, and its listed in my computer, checked the bios and its dectected it. The problem is when i put a disk in and click the 3.5 floppy icon, after a few seconds a message comes up saying please insert disk. Ive also checked the power cables and the ide cable, both were fine, and even tried changing the ide cable which did nothing. Id assume my drive is shot but something just doesnt seem right. I built this computer myself about a year ago, and id say the drive only ended up working for about a month... but i unforuntly i need it now to reformat. i know floppy drives can die fast, but one month?
