Step 4 Step 3: If disk access is a write instruction, the circuit board verifies whether the disk can be written to or not. Step 3 Step 2: When you initiate a disk access, the circuit board on the drive sends signals to control movement of the read/write heads and the disk. Step 2 Step 1: When you insert the floppy disk into the drive, the shutter moves to the side to expose the recording surface on the disk. Step 1 Next
