Default 3.5 inch floppy drive showing as 5.25 floppy? [; ; win98SE]

sponsored links
My floppy drive has decided to configure itself as a 5.25 inch drive, i have tried to reload the driver, even after a re-format still showing the same problem.

Any ideas chaps?

Yup! BIOS check is first. Also remove FDD entry from device manager's Disk Drives section also remove Floppy Disk Controllers and reboot the machine.

I guess it would be when yours is floppy all the time.

Greetings, salutations, Happy Festivus, and kudos to all and sundry. [img]********[/img]
