When you try to copy files to an LS-120 floppy disk drive by using the Send To 3.5 Floppy (A) command, you receive the following error message:
In some computers with an LS-120 drive, the drive is recognized as drive B instead of drive A. In this case, you may see both drives A and B in My Computer, even though there is only one drive (the LS-120 drive functioning as both a floppy disk drive and a 120-MB drive). When this occurs, drive B may be the only drive that works.
To work around this behavior, right-click the file in Windows Explorer, click Copy, right-click drive A, and then click Paste.
Another workaround if you have only one drive that appears as both drives A and B is to disable drive A in Device Manager. After you do this, only drive B appears, but is functional.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
