Hi,

I recently upgraded my computer and added:

-K7S5A motherboard

-Athlon XP1700+

-256 DDR Ram

When I did so, i put everything into a new case. But now when I try to copy something to a floppy, I get a message saying that I cant, because of "I/O device error" Anybody know whats wrong?

Check the connection to your floppy drive, including the 34-pin ribbon cable. Make sure pin #1 (usually the red-colored wire on most cables) is connected to pin 1 on the floppy drive and be sure that it is getting power, and that the sides of the cable are plugged correctly (motherboard end and floppy drive end).
