Floppy Drive Issue

I just installed 0.9.10 on a Windows XP box. As soon as I start Calibre I get these odd seeks on my old floppy drive. Is this a bug or is there some option available to turn it off? The sound of the drive seeking is driving me crazy!

I disabled my Floppy in the BIOS. I can't remember the last time I used it

Just go into device manager in windows and disable the floppy drive. Surely you're not actually using floppies.
