I put a floppy disk in my floppy disk drive and clicked on My Computer, but there was no A drive. Apparently I lost the A drive. How can I retrieve my A drive. Thank you. Murrar

Does it show in My Computer?
You might need to open up the computer and physically check to see if the ribbon cable is tightly plugged into the motherboard and the device

hold windows key + pause|break
go to hardware tab
device manager
look for the drive in there.
see it? :D

Also, try this:
start menu
eight-click "my computer"
go to "manage"
under storage: click "disk management".
see the A drive listed under there? or any floppy drive? (the letters can be changed).

are there any lights or sound coming from the 3.5" floppy drive?

If the music is loud enough, we won't hear the world falling apart.
