Floppy Drive BSOD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Every time I try to format a floppy I get a BSOD. The strange thing is, I can open a floppy if it is already FAT. I've tried re-installing the devices and even swapped drives. I'm about to re-install Vista, HELP!!

UPDATE:
NOTE: When I say format floppy, what I really mean is that I right click on the FDD to TRY and format.

Last night I re-installed Vista. At first, with no software/drivers installed I was able to format a floppy. One by one I installed drivers and software and tried formatting. Everything was going ok until I installed the Razer drivers for my keyboard. At that point, I tried to format a floppy and received the BSOD. After that, I did a system restore to a point right before I installed the Razer drivers. At first I was able to format again. After about the third disk, I received the BSOD again only this time, it happened after I formatted the disk.

I know it's only a floppy drive and truth be told, I could format the disks on another computer. I feel I need to resolve this issue in case I ever need to use it.

At this point I am totally stumped. Why would the BSOD come after I accessed the right click menu of the FDD?

Unfortunately the scan found nothing. I have some Mushkin RAM I'm going to try later today.

I'll do pretty much anything to get rid of this problem.

I switched RAM, still getting the BSOD. I tried all 4 slots, still BSOD. I'm stumped.

The good news is, this Mushkin RAM overclocks better than the OCZ ran at stock, lol. I have the Mushkin running at 1000MHz @ 2.1v while the OCZ maxed out at 800MHz at 2.1v.

Check your FDD controller, maybe get a new FDD

I've tried two different floppy drives, I know both of them work. I've tried re-installing the controller drivers to no avail.

Looks like I'm just going to have to drink this one away, lol.

Does anyone know how to use WinDbg? If so, I have the minidump file. I can't seem to get anywhere with it. I'm going to keep trying though.
