I have a new Dell PC running WinXP. The floppy drive is functional, but every minute or so the floppy drive light goes on for a few seconds and the system slows down slightly. When I am running some applications or when I am in some web sites the floppy drive light goes on even more frequently. How can I make the system stop probing the floppy drive like this? I don't want to disable the floppy, as I occasionally use it to back up small files. (Can you believe that Dell tech support advised me to cut the wires to the floppy drive?!) Thanks.
