I have had mine do this a few times, each time i found out that either the floppy drive cable is not on all the way, is backwards, or is just simply damaged. Have you tried a differnet cables to see if you getting differnt results?

Does it read a boot disk at boot up? Try it that will tell you if its busted or not. Otherwise its a OS issue that will ned a patch.

I haven't tried a boot disk in it, but I suppose that would be easy to try.
The cable idea seems to be a likely cause, as I did do some messing around with that and got different results depending on how the cable was hooked up. Thanks for all the replies, I'll have to check into it some more and see if the cable is indeed the problem.
