Retrospect can poll the floppy drive constantly on systems with SuperDisk
drivers and no SuperDisk. The problem is that the pre-installed system had
SuperDisk drivers installed, even though there is no SuperDisk on the
computer. The fix for this is a simple edit of the registry.
1. Launch Regedit and open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
2. Find the key (or similar): HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Enum \SCSI
4. Within this key look for a value named "CurrentDriveLetter". Change this
from "A" to "B" (or any unused drive letter on your system).
5. Quit Regedit, saving changes, and restart.
Hope that helps!
