I want to recover data from a corrupted floppy disk. How do I do it?

While trying to read a windows word file from the floppy disk, I got a message saying that it was corrupted. Don't know why, it has not been abused that I can figure out.

SOURCE: lost file for 3D 4D Browser Mouse - Phoebe brand

Floppy Disk????   How old is this mouse?
It 'should' have drivers for Win98 and such on the floppy. Did you look?
Are you running WinXP?
If no drivers for your Operating System on the disk, you need to download the driver software for the OS you have.
Go online to the Mfg. website and search for drivers for your Mouse and your OS.

Sabrent external floppy reader is asking me to format my floppy disk. how can a format it without deleting my files on floppy disk?


Your floppy disk drive may be defective. Also, Some floppy drives are manufactured differently. Your best bet is to find another floppy drive to read your floppy disk. You can try to take it to the nearest computer store and ask them to read it for you. If they can read it at the computer store? The Sabrent drive you received if bad. If they cannot read it the floppy is bad. If the floppy is bad you can try to download free data recovery software to attempt to recover your data, files etc. Good luck

Refer to the corresponding sections for details on these utilities.


prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
• Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the

To recover the BIOS from the support CD:
1. Remove any floppy disk from the floppy disk drive, then turn on the
system.
2. Insert the support CD to the optical drive.
3. The utility displays the following message and automatically checks
the floppy disk for the original or updated BIOS file.

so can cause system boot failure!

Hi David,

Likely the drive is out of alignment, and head position changes each time that you insert a disk. You might try reading the disk on a different machine and try to get the data off. But, if the drive is too far out of alignment, even this won't work.

This is also a sign of 1) Drive motor turning too fast / slowly (likely), or a viral infection of your computer.

I also have the same drive that you do, and began getting a few read / write errors when making bootable disks. Problem ultimately ended up being worn out media. Resolution was to start using USB memory sticks, but harder to boot on machines that don't have BIOS support for this.

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.
