The error means 3 things:

1. Files format of the files saved on the Floppy disk is not readable on the OS or does not comply with the file format of the OS. So you really need to format it.

2. The floppy disk is brand new and you need to format it first.

3. The floppy disk is not working. Try a known working floppy disk.

My floppy drive does not seem to recognise that a floppy disk is inserted...after inserting a floppy disk and trying to run it ......it says ' please insert disk into drive A' ? any advice would be much...


Hello there!

Well, you 1st should check is your floppy drive properly insterted into your pc mb. Open your hardware check the joins on your FD(floppy drive) if thats ok, assemble the box. Next move is to check is your FD even enabled in ps BIOS. Open your bios acess general settings, and you should find setting flopy disc 1,28~ enable/disable.

After that if you still experience problems you should thinking about usage of usb pen drives, since floppy drive systems are really outdated, as I know there never been any drivers for that system , so those steps should solve your problem.

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

Insert this floppy in to your floppy drive at this time. It will load the driver from floppy. After this you can proceed normal installation

Disk with data stored on it says that it is not formatted


Maybe you had something with a magnetic field lying nex to the flopy drive and the code got mixed up and now the data is not readable.
You can try with raw extraction like in CD's. you need to have a program to recover the data without having to actually decode them. I used to use Recovery Toolbox for CD's, I'm sure there's a simular programe for floppy's somewhere on the net. after recovering, things worked on the computer, although the dish was never usable since the day I got the message 'can't read data'/'no data'/'not formatted' etc.
With floppy's I think that you'll never get the data from it by computer itself. I didn't get the data from the corrupt CD's, and they have much more advancer programs than floppy discs. so I recomend you find the program, get the data and throw the floppy away. If you have problems finding the program, post and I'll help.

Hp pavillion m9080n cannot read flopy disk


Floppy disk drives (and disks) are not that reliable and usually fail, especially on older computers. A test would be to try a different floppy, also try formatting a different floppy. Can you read the problem floppy from a different computer?

FORMAT ERROR


You may have a bad floppy... Just like floppy drives in PCs sony floppys do go out. If you search around as I did (sorry don't remeber the link) you can find diagrams on how to replace the floppy and they are available for sale! I think we found some for $25 per. Good hunting!
