    Hi,

    I have windows XP with SP2 and when I shutdown my system for some reasons my Generic floppy drive (for diskette 3.5'') make a lot of noises (there is no diskette on the drive)o_O
    Somebody know what could be the problem and how to make my Generic Floppy drive stop going crazy at shutdown?

    Thanks,
    Atomas31

    does your antivirus have a setting to scan floppies on shutdown? if so, try disabling that option.

    Hi WSFuser,

    I use NOD32. Do you know where and how to check that on NOD32?

    Also, could it be a driver problem? If so, where do I go to download the updated driver?

    Thanks,

    i think it may under AMON > Setup > Detection tab, but i dont have NOD32 so i cant verify.

    Thanks, you were right! I disable the scan at shutdown and will see if it works when I actually shut down my system ;-)

    After shuting down my system last night, I can confirm that it was NOD32 scan at shutdown that was making my Floppy Drive make a lot of noise... Thank's WSFuser ;)

    Since my problem was related with NOD32, Maybe a MOD could transfert this threads to the NOD32 forums :)

    Thanks,
