Windows Updates should support drivers for floppy drives.

Is this a USB floppy drive? It should be automatically detected under XP. If it's not being detected then it's likely a problem with your Windows installation or your motherboard/chipset drivers.

But first, try it on another PC to see if it works - could be that it's broken.
