Floppy Disc Help

  I,Me and Myself 20:45 21 Jun 2006

Trying to access info on a floppy disc but nothing happening. When I scan the disc drive with the floppy in I get the following message:

Scan was completed with error. This volume does not contain a recognized file system.

Any thing I can do as the floppy contains vital info.

Try it in another system.

Try some software such as:-
click here

click here

and others if you google.

If those links diesse gave, don't work, there are companies who can extract the info and put it on cd-rom for you, cost money.

Can't find links, soory, but look in the back of pc mags in whsmiths, there's normally a few listed there.

Hope this helps.

I would use something like "BadCopy Pro" (DieSse's first link) or something simlar.

The route that vinnyT has suggested, can be VERY extensive

If it was create on one comp like XP then open on 98 it will not go

Only reason I put it up for consideration, mattyc_92, is because I,Me and Myself stated the disks contain vital info.

I realise that, and I wasn't employing that your idea shouldn't be looked at.

I was just stating that it could cost a arm and a leg ;-)

Fair enough

Thanks, with ALL of your help I have managed to get my vital data back.

It is now on a new floppy disc, also on a CD Rom too,

Cheers> :)
