These guys are correct, when the light is on all the time on a floppy drive it means the ribbon cable is flipped around. Unhook one end and flip it around and plug it back in. also make sure that the end where the twist in the cable is closest to is plugged into the floppy drive itself.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
