floppy not getting read properly?


 Share

Recommended Posts

i just rebooted my computer and i saved some documents on a floppy so i could access them later. The problem is that when i put the floppy in and click on the 3 1/2 floppy picture in my computer it says: Please insert disk into drive A:. And yes i have tried more than one floppy, it does that for all of them?

what seems to be the problem?

well the floppy drive works. like i said before, you need to format the disk, this will be the only way to make the disk work. try to format a floppy you dont need. do you still have the files you need or are they only on that 1 floppy?

It coud be a bad floppy drive. The floppy cable could be in wrong or it could be bad. Check your event logs and also check your bios. Try to boot from it by using a test floppy from bootdisk.com
