OK, this isn't ADAM related, but I'm getting a strange message when I boot my computer up and I don't quite understand what's going on.
IDE Channel 1 no 80 conductor cable installed
Floppy disk(s) fail (40)
I don't understand the IDE reference since both my hard drives and both my DVD/CD drives appear to be functioning normally.
But my 3.5" & 5.25" floppy drives have been acting strange. They sometimes won't read disks or even format them. I don't use the floppy drives a whole lot on my main computer and I just noticed this yesterday.
I have checked to make sure the cables are plugged in tightly and nothing else is loose, but I still get the error message.
