They are rewritable. You can delete, edit, add etc.

If you mean 3.5 inch disc, you can add or delete data or reformat and start from new.

I tried to erase the lot but did not see any delete sign about. Will try again.
Thanks all.

There is a small sliding switch that can be set to protect the contents of the floppy. Is that in the correct position?

Just right click the floppy in explorer
