Hey all - my floppy is not ''ejecting'' from the drive...I am positive that I inserted it correct because it did correctly both read and write. It''s just stuck and won''t come out. Any clues?

Is it a PC drive... Or mac (Don't macs only have a software ejection? )

If its a PC, more than likely it's the little metal cover (sliding flap) is bent up just a tad. You may need to play with it a bit to get it out... Or perhaps use something flat and skinny to try yo get the flap un-caught

Your drive should have a hard-eject switch inside, I think. At least Macs do (the little paper clip hole).

pjcast: yeah, macs only have software eject CDs and floppies. Beats the hell out of hitting the eject button while just finishing your file copy
