I have a 3 1/2" floppy disc that I have been using for quite a while, which I wrote on my computer. Now I can't open it. I tried different discs and they work just fine but when I try to open this particular one the drive runs for awhile then I get this message that says it can't open the file under these parameters. This isn't music or videos or anything, just records I keep on maintenance of vehicles I own, but I hate to lose it.
I checked the switch, it was ok, then I ran the checkdisc, it said the disc had no errors. I decided the info on the disc wasn't worth the trouble so after trying a few other things I just started another list, remembering as much of the info as I could. Thanks to all!
I've tried other floppys in the drive..they work just fine. I tried checking the disc, it said it was fine, also. It had something to do with what program to use to open the folder. I don't know what would have changed on the disc to require something different to open it. I even tried the system restore to take it back to an earlier date and that wouldn't open it either. Apparently, when I used the disc last I must have inadvertently pushed the wrong key or something making it where I couldn't open it again. I've since formatted the disc and tried to re-do it from memory.
