Floppy dirve runs when accessing disks

By dsservice ·
I have a pc that when I access other disk like zip drive or cd rom the floppy disk will run even if there is not a disk in it. it will run for 15 to 20 seconds if there is no disk in it but if it has a disk in it will only run for 1 to 2 seconds. any ideas.

Click on Start,Settings,then select Taskbar and Start menu,click the Advanced tab and then click the button to clear the my documents folder and see if this will stop the disk from accessing.

Something else to look for is your virus protection software. There are usually setting telling the software when to scan the floopy drive. Also, microsoft find fast might be set to scan A: when looking for a file.

I realize this may not help, but here is my $.02.

I once found a document relating to this issue on Microsoft's website. It has to do with a registry key. As I didn't need the information at the time, I just made a mental note and moved on, so I don't have the specific registry key/setting.

This is a bug in Win95/98. There isn't anything you can really do other than way the 15 seconds.
