    If this problem 'suddenly' happened, then I am afraid the drive is broken.
    Floppydrives aren't that expensive, for around 15 euros/ $10 you have a good drive and building it in is a POC (Piece Of Cake).
    I usually say 'Hope this helps' after giving a reply, but I won't put that here :p

    If the floppy drive makes noises, and it's plugged in properly and connected, then, It's broke. Time for a new floppy drive, which is really no big thing.
