many thanks to all of you mac scientists! Wish I could know about G3 as much as you...Well, the problem is that I try to install old version of Cubase software to my mini-tower, but when unit asks me to insert floppy diskette with authorization key floppy drive doesn't see diskette and eject it automaticly after few seconds. I know that disk is not damaged, so it could not be the reason. In system profiler I can't see floppy drive mounted though it eject without pressing eject button by me, so it seems to me floppy drive works fine...may be not (( I'm so sad! Recently I replaced battery and this caused erasing some drivers...Do I need to reinstall OS? Actually I haven't original cd with OS 9. I bought some days ago OS 8 but couldn't install it because of OS 9 still on hard-drive ... So weird stuff! Hope you have any ideas.
floppy drive on beige G3, can't understand what's happening
