Floppy Drive Seek is Slowing Your Computer
Are you tired of waiting on a fast computer that's running slowly? Do you have to wait while your computer tries to read what, if anything, is in the floppy drive each time you open My Computer?
If this is happening to you, the probable cause is an incorrect registry value. This is fairly simple to correct.
- Click "Start" then "Run".
- type: regedit
- Click OK.
- Navigate to:
- Double-click the NoDriveTypeAutoRun entry and change the Binary Value to 95 00 00 00.
- OK your changes and close Regedit.exe.
Restart your computer for the changes to take effect. When your computer has restarted, open My Computer and check to see if your drives appear immediately in the window without the system first attempting to access the floppy drive.
