Hello there folks. I'd like some advice on what to do about my floppy disk not being listed in my computer. I have recently reformatted and reinstalled XP Pro. I notice that the floppy disk controller is listed in device manager and all is apparently working fine. I don't have the floppy drive listed under 'drives' in device manager.
My post screen flicks by so quickly, I haven't seen whether the floppy is being detected there.
XP doesn't detect any new hardware after running the hardware wizard.
I've found a possible solution:
This behavior is the result of corrupted or incorrect registry entries.
To fix this problem:
1. Copy / Paste the following to a FloppyFilter.reg file:
3. Merge the FloppyFilter.reg file with your registry or run regedit /s FloppyFilter.reg. 4. Shutdown and restart your computer
The only problem I have here, is that I'm not sure how to merge the reg file. I'd be really thankful of some advice here please...
