I seldom use a floppy drive (seldom may or may not mean never). Is it reallythat important ? I've read somewhere that Windoze does a constant check on the floppy for new media. wont that query take up processing speed ? And Doesnt the fact that its constantly plugged in to the main power source and always on, take up some of my power ? I'm thinking I can unplug it alltogether and gain back some of that processing speed and power, but I'm not sure its worth the hassle. anyone have input on that ?
