Try reseating the data cable at both ends. A cable with a bit of dust or slightly loose may cause data errors confusing the operating system.

Few problems may cause this :
1. If your floppy works in 98 but not in
2000 so you may look for cause in OS
level and not a HW issue.
2. Try to see a hardware profile of Win2000
OS. This may disable your floppy may be
someone played with your PC.
3. At the end, try to replace it. If problem
still occurs this may be cable or board
problem.

Good Luck,
