Question about Sony (1QTY) Beige 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive 1.44mb (CFDDSWHT) Floppy Drive
Yesterday I used my floppy disc and an hour latter when I went to use it again it would not work. It came up that the disc was not formatted, but it was and if I formate it I will loose everthing I have on it.
Can you give me any help on how i can open it.
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.)

Tips for a great answer:
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.
