JSI Tip 6279. Your floppy disk does NOT appear in Windows XP's My Computer?

Your floppy disk does NOT appear in Windows XP's My Computer. In Device Manager, your floppy disk may be listed as 37 or 39.

This behavior is the result of corrupted or incorrect registry entries.

To fix this problem:

1. Copy / Paste the following to a FloppyFilter.reg file:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\\{4D36E980-E325 11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318\}\]
"UpperFilters"=-
"LowerFilters"=-

3. Merge the FloppyFilter.reg file with your registry or run regedit /s FloppyFilter.reg.

4. Shutdown and restart your computer.
