just right click on the file and select 'Send to' and then click on either 'floppy disk' (A) or DVD drive (D)

Make sure that the file you wish to transfer is smaller than 1.44MB if you use a floppy.

make sure you move the write protect tab on the floppy drive's underside (top left corner) down to cover the hole. this will make it writeable

ok mate the hole was covered its a new floppy now its sayin..
you cannot do a quick format because the disc is not formated its capacity does not match or there is no disk in the drive click ok too perform a full format using the capacity u specified.?
also ... windows could not format the disc either the selected capacity is not valid or this disk or the disk is damaged and may need too be replaced.
im lost mate .lol sorry ...

MOST FLOPPY DISKS COME PRE-FORMATTED, AS FOR THE FILE BEING THERE, HAVE A LOOK, DOUBLE CLICK ON THE FLOPPY DRIVE A in my computer, damn caps lock!!
