Hello,
just installed hp internal floppy drive.

I checked all connections.
I turned on computer and there is no activity when I insert a floppy disk.
Is there something missing?
I thought the windows xp would recognize this.
thank you in advance,Cynthia

Floppy cable to Mobo
Power connector to floppy, in the correct direction.
Does bios see the floppy?
Set bios to boot from floppy first, now it should make noise every tiome you boot.
