floppy format

  jtw 17:30 01 Sep 06

Every disc I put into the floppy disc drive is "not formatted". Obviously this is rubbish as we have been using them all. Is the drive @**@&*ed?

It may be.

Also check the cable - take off and put back on.

Also XP doesn't like floppies formatted on some earlier versions of Windows - they changed something slightly - could this be a problem with yours?

One thing at least - floppy drives are very inexpensive, and very simple to change.

One last question - did it used to work OK - or have you changed anything in the system?

Have installed Tesco phone. Since then a lot of probs.
Drive was fine.

Also the discs were originally from my pc.

Pulled all connections out and put 'em back. Only a few sparks but all seems ok.

Mucho thanks!!
