Floppy drive problems

My floppy drive is currently copying everything I put into the drive.
If I boot my machone up and insert a floppy, windows can read it fine and manipulate files on it as normal. However, if I then insert a floppy after that the contents of the orginal floppy are then copied onto the second floppy. As you can imagine, this is VERY annoying.
I have run virus scans and they have come up clean. I have replaced the drive itself and the cable. And nothing really new has been put on the computer.
The other interesting thing is if I remove the orginal floppy and then open the a:\ in my computer I can still read and manipulate the files even tho there isn't a floppy in the drive.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Try "view/refresh" from "a" drive menu before inserting new disc, or wait for the green light to go out between inserting discs.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
