Try copying the file onto your hard drive - checking it's properties, and if "Read-only" is set, uncheck it. Then try again with the new copy.

Is the write protect tab on the floppy disk in place?


Have you tried to open it on another machine?


Other than that, try to do what DieSse says and copy it to your hard disk. It may be that the floppy is on it's way to the down the tube.
