Problems with your floppy drive?


Yesterday the A drive quit working when I attempted to look at some digital photo's. It was working fine before that. Now it Buzzes when I insert a disk and attempt to open it in my computer. After buzzing a popup error message. "Floppy disk controller reported an error not recognized by the disk driver." I tried to format a disk and the drive was unable to do that task also. I tried several disks and was unable to open any of them. Some I had previously viewed. Do I need to replace the A drive or could it be something else?
