If you are experiencing floppy drive seek every time you open a folder or Windows explorer, go to 'services' and set "Shell Hardware Detection" to 'automatic'. This will stop the floppy seek every time you open a folder.

ok this is off topic...but wouldn't you bet that 2 days ago I took the step of removing my floppy drive as I hadn't used it in god knows how long....

and today my boss gives me an excel file on a floppy...and refused to just e-mail it to me doh!

Your not alone, I only use a floppy when setting up XP after a good fdisk and format... Other than that I haven't used a floppy for so long.
