Hi night,

Go to start/my computer, right click on floppy drive, select format.

I see you are living up to your name;-)

It won't format if it is write protected, turn the floppy over to the side that shows the round steel circle thingy and move the little slide button in the right hand bottom corner away from the edge.

OK,ok,ok Blimey, I thought my hard drive was cracking up, must have been your false teeth chattering eh? ;-))

I'll add to my last post " this will remove the write protection on the floppy and it can now be formatted", now It might be alright for night having shed some light, right or shall I go fly my kite?

Sorry night we seem to be getting carried away.Let us know if you need any further explanation.
