Have W2K installed on 1st PC...Floppy Drive does not read floppies. Thought floppy drive maybe faulty, installed a new one.. still not reading floppies. Connected both floppy drives to another 2nd PC with W2K, floppy drives working OK and reading disk.
On 1st PC, in Windows getting error, Disk not formatted - (not true- disk is formatted and has files on it). In command prompt, getting error: The Disk Media is not recognised. It may not be formatted. Then when I do try to format it,I get the following responses:
C:\>format a: The type of the file system is RAW. The new file system is FAT Formatting 1.44M Invalid media or track 0 bad - disk unusable.
When I insert the disk in other computers, I can read/write to it.
What is wrong here.. please help as I do need this floppy drive to work as I have application disk which I need to install on the PC.
Had similar problems when installing my pc into a new case and found that I had fitted the drive too tight to the front of the case. This was not allowing the floppy to engage properly and the drive was not reading it. I eased the drive bask a fraction and it cured the problem.
