Problem with floppy disk drive and MSI 865PE Neo2-LSR

  1. Hi!

    I have a problem with my floppy disk drive. One week ago I bought a
    new Motherboard (MSI 865PE Neo2-LSR) with a new CPU (P4 2.4 GHz) to
    upgrade my system. After I upgraded everything has been working fine –
    but the floppy drive still doesn't work. The only sign of life it
    gives is its constantly lighting green light as if it was working all
    the time, but when I try to access a floppy disk Windows XP says that
    there is no disk in the drive. I don't think it's a problem with
    Windows because when I try to boot from a floppy disk it doesn't work
    either. I checked everything in my system, I changed connector cables,
    checked the power supply cable (which is obviously working because of
    the green light), I even bought a new floppy disk drive thinking that
    the old one was broken – but I still had the same problem with the new
    So my question is: Can someone give me another clue of what might be
    the problem? I hope that it is not a problem with the motherboard
    because it would be very annoying to get it fixed.

    Flip the floppy cable over.

    Bingo. The cable was plugged in upside down.
