PC World announced that it is to stop selling floppy disks and with most computers now not coming with floppy drives (my mother board doesn?t even have anywhere to plug one in). Its probably worth considering another form of storage such as a pen drive which are now very popular.
However, if you have a permanently green light on your floppy drive this probably means that you have the floppy cable in the wrong way round.
Also, it?s worth looking in the BIOS to make sure your floppy drive is set to 1.44Mb A: drive.
Try a few disks as they are easily damaged, if after trying a few (from another batch too) you still cant get any to work, its probably a faulty drive. You can get a new drive for around
