Well, partially answering my own question, after doing some more tinkering, it would turn out that the red LEDs I see inside the floppy disk drive are actually used to tell the drive if a floppy disk has been inserted. Apparently, when I insert a floppy disk, it isn't displacing a small black plastic piece far enough to block the RED lights, thus the floppy disk drive doesn't know that a disk has been inserted. Now I just need to figure out why the black plastic piece isn't being displaced far enough.
