Floppy Drive Problem

Last response: in Components

I recently upgraded my box from a Pentuim3-667 based mobo to a Soyo SY K7VTA Pro MB and AMD XP1900+ cpu. I now am getting errors when using the (previously working) floppy drive. I do formating and I get huge numbers of bad sectors from floppys that were previouly good 1.44Mb. I also get errors when copying or pasting to/from the drive. I swapped it out with another drive and cable with the same results. Could the controller be bad on the new MoBo? Should I have done a clean re-install of W98? Any ideas/feedback is appriciated.

You should have do a clean installation since you new motherboard use a different chipset.

Yes a Clean install of Win 98 should straighten it out.
