    Check that the floppy cable is connected the right way round. If it is, try another floppy cable.

    Power Lead

    Try turning the power connector around on the floppy drive, I've seen some floppy drive's lights stay on constant when the power lead is reversed. Hope this helps.

    I forgot to mention. When the floppy drive light is constantly on, simply unplugging the floppy cable at the floppy drive end and reversing the cable, may well solve the problem.
