    Floppy discs ?? you mean people still use them ?? most likely a disc problem,try some different floppies,why do you need floppies for office 2007 ?? this was never released on floppies as it would of taken a huge amount of discs.explain a little more of what you are trying to do and we may be able to understand your problem.

    I cant get my A drive to read discs either,i dont know if its loose or what.....

    I click on 'A' and it freezes for a minute then nothing happens.......

    For ahwile ''A'' dissapeared from "My computer" so i assume something is loose in the tower but im not sure......

    I checked DEVICE MANAGER and it says the drive is "working properly"..


    I put a disk in and click A it says "A is not ready,no disk inserted" even though i put one in... Must be loose i dont know......

    What does your A drive do tmm5899 when you insert a disk?
