Default Diskette drive A error??

Hi,... new to the forum,....

First off, I'll admit I am not as computer literate as some of you here might be. I've got a Sony PCG-NVR23 notebook that I've had for almost three years. It performs great, but lately on start-up I've been getting a "Diskette Drive A Error". I have an interchangeable CD/DVD/Floppy disk drive. I haven't had the need to use the Floppy since I got the notebook, and my CD/DVD drive works just fine. Anyone here know what the hell I can do to make this error message go away? Troubleshooting it through XP just didn't seem to give me effective advice.
Thanks in advance.

Problem solved!
(What I meant about the interchangable drives, which I should have made more clear, was that I have a choice between having a combo of CD/DVD drive with either a floppy, a subwoofer, or a number-key pad.)

The computer came with Windows XP.

Basically what I did to slove this problem was taking out the subwoofer, and inserting the floppy disk drive in its place. When I restarted the computer, the error message disappeared. I then plugged the subwoofer back in place, and the error message did not come back. Now.... I don't understand WHY exactly that worked, but I'm happy it did.

Thank you both for trying to give some suggestions, and sorry for wasting your time.
