RE: A: drive

Hi Richard,

The worst you could do is to damage your floppy disk drive, which is only worth around 10$ anyways. So go ahead and try to pry the diskette out using a flat head screw driver or anything else you can think of. If you do end up ruining the drive, which is unlikely, you can easily buy a new one from your local computer shop to replace the old one. Just open your computer case, take out the old diskette drive (remove 4 screws, the power cable and the data cable), slide the new drive in, reconnect the 2 cables that you removed from the old drive and put the 4 screws back in. Not too hard to do.
