Floppy Issue with 2000 server

By cwunder3 ·
I have a Windows 2000 server that was originally installed with Terminal Services. When I tried to access the floppy drive, I get the response 'A is not accessable. The network request is not supported.' I removed Terminal Services but the drive is still not accessible in Windows. I can however boot from a DOS disk and the drive works fine. I have tried replacing the drive and cables with known good devices. I read about something called ERROR 50 with Terminal services. The error 50 message is the same...the network request is not supported. Are these problems related? Does anyone have an answer to this one? Thank you.

Floppy Issue with 2000 server

Since you are able to boot from a floppy, the problem probably isn't the drive. I suspect the issue is one of permissions. Using the (security) policy editor, you can set an option, both domain-wide and specifically on DCs as to whether or not to restict accesse of the floppy (and CD-ROM) drive to locally logged on users only.

Restrict floppy access is disabled under local setting and effective setting.
