[Q] I have recently purchased the COMPAQ PCMCIA disk drive. My problem is that
I cannot get the Aero to properly recognize the drive. If the drive is plugged
in when I boot the computer, I can use the drive fine. The PCMCIA configuration
window in Windows, however, will report that the card is "not configured." If I
try to plug the drive in after the computer is already booted, it will not let
me use the drive at all. I have the latest SOFTPAQ (version 1.45, rev. A) and
PCMCIA drivers (version 1.25, rev. A). Also, my X-Jack modem seems to operate
fine in the PCMCIA slot. Any suggestions on how to get the floppy up and
running? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

[A] If you are using MS-DOS or Windows 3.1x, the easiest way to fix the
problem is to get the very original CONFIG.SYS of Aero which is well
configured to work with the drive.
    
     Note: see FAQ sections on the config.sys file

[A] Try removing some of your third party software (non-Compaq stuff). 
Sometimes these packages futz with the floppy drive, like for instance
Colorado Backup.

[A] Look in the sections of the FAQ on specific operating systems for more
detailed information on this, and related floppy woes.
