My sister has tried using a floppy disk which has all her university work on, but when she tries to open it its saying "The disk is not formatted or its formatted for a Macintosh" Strange considering we have a PC which she has saved it from, not a mac. Is there any way of formatting it to a PC type (FAT) without loosing 3 years of work.? Also is there anything that can be done to maybe convert it?
FE's comments rings a bell with me now. I had problems recognising a floppy when I'd used it in Win 2000 and then tried to read it in a Win95 system. It would only be read in a system with NT, 2000 or XP.
