I have a Floppy Drive
Panasonic i believe
and

Every computer its in my old k6-2 or my New Spitfire

if something big is loading from it
say making a startup disk it locks up the system as its working 99 1/2 %

Why?
Anyone else have this issue?
Is there any settings that would do this
maybe its just the drive
but i mean
loading something from it say playing mp3's it locks up and music stops

i used to thingk my 350 wasnt fast enough but the same symptoms on my 800

ideas?
