To confirm that, we put the working floppy drive back into the new computer. Hmm, its not working there. Maybe it got damaged in the old computer?
So hooked up the previously working floppy drive in the new computer, which never got moved out of it, with its normal cable, being very careful to hook it up the same way as it was before. Now its not working, giving the same error as the one above;
A:\ is not accessible. No ID address mark was found on the floppy disk.
Could the old computer have done something to a floppy drive that caused it to then damage the interface with the drive on the new one? It seems hard to believe, but I don't know enough about it to be sure.
