It is possible that there are errors on the floppy disk or the disk was formated using a format that is incompatible with the current operating system. If the disk is readable on another system, the best solution would be to copy the files onto a portable USB flash drive, then reformat the floppy disk using a filesystem that is readable on the desired computer.
U need an interface, if u want to use the "34 pin out" from floppy disk unit, to the "24 pin in" connector jack, inside KN 1000 main board.
U can get this interface unit bboard from "the KN 1000 floppy disk drive unit".
Just open this unit SY-FD20, and pick out that interface board from this unit,
Then use it as interface to connect your new 34 pin out floppy disk drive to connecting to the 24 pin in connector jack inside the KN 1000 mainboard.
you will need to check the way the device reads the disk if may have changed if you tried using a ordinary dvd then went a dvd/r some times you need to change the settings back to the way it was when you installed it ok

It would appear that you may need to do a couple of things in order to restore the drive back to normal. I would disconnect the drive using the icon provided to this effect and doing it after the message says it's safe to disconnect it.
If the message says differently, I would still disconnect it, unles you're in the middle of writing, which you're not.
Upon reconnecting the drive, should the condition persist, I would recycle the laptop and try again. It does not make sense that a disk that you recently read from to burn a CD is no longer readable, unless the mechanism inside the drive had collected debris that caused the data on your floppy to be ruined. That would be an unfortunate disaster.
If rebooting the laptop still fails to read the disks, then try blowing any dust or dirt from inside the drive using one of those small canisters of compressed air that people use to clean their keyboards and other devices and try again.
Should the condition persist, try loading the floppy disks on another system to see whether they've been ruined by your drive.
If they are readable, then the drive would appear to be deffective.
Sometimes u can go to a different computer and get the disk to work. Most of the time u can't though. I suggest you try a few different computers (new and old computers) and if you get one to read it get your info off and save it to another floppy or a flash drive or something. I have also tried the format option and it will always say that the disk can't be formatted. I usually toss them in the trash after that.
You may also try running a standard windows scandisk on the disk.
A lot of people feel more secure saving their stuff to a floppy, mostly because it's something physical they can hang onto and carry around. But the truth is that they are far too unreliable to use given the wide range of other options available today (e-mail, ftp, jump drives, hard drives, cd-roms, etc.)
