floppy has to be formatted,to format any floppy
click on my computer,select your floppy drive with a floppy in it,right click and choose format,this will also clean any data you have on the floppy so you can use it again

But i never had to with the other, or with all the ones ive used before.

Some floppies that you buy are preformatted. Others are not. My computer sometimes does not recognise that the disc is formatted and asks for another formatting.
