floppy drive

For whatever reason when I loaded windows XP PRO I now have two floppy
drives in MY COMPUTER. One is drive A, the other is drive B. I went
into Device Manager and deleted the other floppy drive but when I
rebooted my pc it came back. I have a LS-120 floppy drive, which
Device Manger recognize, the other one just shows up as a floppy drive.
How can I get rid of the one that is just a floppy drive?

This may be normal. Do they both work OK?
XP might "see" them as two different drives...

You need to go into the BIOS and turn off the floppy controller and tell it that there is no floppy
drive present. I have LS-120 also and this what I did. Usually on first BIOS setting page is a
setting for type of floppy change to none. On one of the other pages will be enable/disable floppy
controller set to disable. This wont effect 120 as it runs on IDE channel.
