But I don't have a floppy disc installed !!

    Domanda

  • When I open "my computer", I get a floppy drive as one of my devices..    but I don't have one..   Surely Windows 7 should be able to figure this out ???

  • It will be enabled in your BIOS.

    Simple solution, disable the floppy disc & controller in your BIOS.

    BrownMFC, I have a question about the check-box in windows explorer under "organize", "Folder and search options","view",
    "Hide empty drives in the computer folder". My check box has no effect on the empty floppy/CD drives displaying in the computer folder.
    I'm sure I've missed something, well anyway Thanks in advance.

    I'm sure the 'hide empty drives' only applies to memory card type drives although I have seen it when an internal drive didn't have an active partition.

    Previously with Vista when you had a card reader installed it would list a heck of a lot of empty drives, one for each slot which to me seems pointless.

    Also, keeping the CD/DVD drive visible makes sense as you can right click on files & select send to CD/DVD even though there is no media in the drive, but when you insert media you will then be prompted to write what is pending.
