I’d try dumping the floppy drive controller from device manager and rebooting. Worst case scenario perhaps - click here

Have you 'locked' the floppy accidentaly, check the locking tab.
I binned a load of floppys once because they came up with that sort of message before I found that I had locked them!

The last identical query to this a few days ago was resolved by removing and refitting the floppy drive cable. click here

Otherwise you probably have a faulty cable or faulty drive.
