Can you copy the exact message with anything it says in the title bar above it. Is this a floppy with something on you`re trying to read and is it just the one disc or are other discs OK?

it tells me on all disks the same

A:\ is not accessible
no id address was found on the floppy disk

Is there something on the disks such as a file that you know is there but can`t access it or are these brand new disks?

Sounds like you bought unformated DOS discs. Right click the disc choose forme. see if it then works

Try it on another computer. The floppy disk drive may have packed up.

If the drive has packed in then it is easier and cheaper to simply replace the drive, a new drive should cost less than a tenner. What OS btw?
