On trying to format a floopy disc the following message comes with Explanation Mark ! Windows was unable to complete the format.

Does this mean the floopy drive is faulty or what?

have you tried to use another disk if that fails chances are the drive is at fault

Only format from My Computer - right click the floppy drive and choose format. (You may get your message if you try to do this from Windows Explorer.) Try another disc and if that fails clean the drive using a floppy disc cleaner disk.

If nothing improves post back!
