Using the floppy disk drive
Inserting a floppy disk
THE SYSTEM DRIVES
The floppy disk drive is usually configured in the system BIOS as
drive A:, with a capacity of 1.44 Mbytes.
Floppy disks should be kept away from bright sunlight, dust,
moisture and any strong magnetic fields. Avoid opening the metal
window on the disk as this exposes the magnetic surface to
contamination which could render the disk useless.
Insert the disk with the metal window first, with the label side
uppermost into the drive. This will push open the drive door.
Push the disk gently home until it 'clicks' into place. The drive
button will also move outwards slightly. The drive door will
stay open, leaving the disk just visible
The system should now be able to access the disk and the
information it may contain. While the system is accessing the disk,
the 'drive active' LED, opposite the button, should be lit.
