    you have not cleared that what sort of data you want to backup.



    if you want it from some software or is it through windows only.



    if you use CD or now a days a pen drive for the backup it will be better as floppies are not reliable for the purpose.

A floppy disc has only 1.44MB, your data file size must not acceed 1.44MB. You only have to copy and paste your file or data to your drive A, Drive A should be your floppy disk. Make sure your disk is not lock, there is a botom lever that locks the disk to prevent accidents like unexpected deleting. If it's locked you can't copy, past or save data on your floppy disk.

I want to transfer data from a floppy disc to a cd


Your computer must have a floppy disk drive in order to read data. You have to buy one or borrow computer (from your friend maybe).

Hi


Remove the battery, and clean the compartment of any old corrosion on the contacts. Leave the batteries out for a few hours. Allow all static electricity to drain. While it's off and UNPLUGGED work the power switch a few times to bet all the charge in the capacitors of the power supply. Press some buttons.... let it rest a few hours. Next return the batteries and start the machine. Your problem appears to be corrupted boot up of the Operating and Setup chips after a partial discharge and rapid reboot.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

What is floppy disks?and how it is work.and what is its uses?


Hi,

Floppy Disks are the disks that can store data on them.

They are an old and retired storage medium which is not used any longer.

Now, we use CD, DVD, USB drives which are the modern solutions for data storage and retrival..

The capacity was floppy drives was limited and hence it has slowly relegated to the background now.

At these times finding a floppy disc to use would require quite some hunting for the same.

If you require any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
Thank you.

How do i fix my floppy drive, It keeps telling me to insert a disc in drive a, when theres one in there.


Can you tell if the drive is running? Check the power connector to the floppy drive and make sure it is on. I"m assuming this is in a desktop. The back of the floppy should have a illistration of the pin connectors and one of them should be labeled #1. Make sure the ribbon that is plugged into the floppy drive is plugged in correctly. The one side of the ribbon cable is painted red. It should match the diagram for #1 pin position. If you haven't changed this drive since it last worked then leave the cable as it was and just make sure it's pushed in tight. Don't change the cable if this drive worked once upon a time. If that all looks good then the drive may be defective. It's not detecting that a disc has been inserted. The nature of a floppy drive is that they get dust inside of them and they don't have a long life sometimes. That's why most computers don't come with floppy drives any more. They're a junkie way to transfer data. Memory sticks and cds are too easy.

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.
