If this is a new floppy then its advisable to format it.

But if it has been formated before and the message still comes on then ignore it.

Also if you're denied access (Copy or Read) to the floppy then please reinstall the drivers and the floppy drive again using the installation manual

Keeps asking, format disk ?


the disk has to be formatted before info can be written to it. click yes and you should get a box asking the type of format. since you didnt say what operating system you have i will assume you have XP or newer. choose NTFS and quick format

I am now unable to access a floppy disk that I had been able to access for years. I now get an error message that tells me the disk has no ID address mark. How do I fix this?


Try changing the stting switch on the disk. I think it is for formatting or something like that. Try moving it to the opposite direction and then put it in your computer again ;) Good Luck

Same problem with my MPF82E


Hi,
You see floppy drives are pretty old technology compared to the Vista environment which is the latest. Your floppy external drive will most likely run better in the Windows XP environment along with the necessary drivers on device manager under control panel...and those drivers you can also download. Am sure it will work better with windows 98 or XP.

Thanks & Kind Regards

I have a dell dimension e520 and I just bought a wd 320 gb sata hdd. When I want to install xp it stops before the welcome to setup screen and it gives me a blue screen help please


The blue screen you are seeing is probably not the regular BSOD (blue screen of death)

Wat you need is the DOS SATA drivers for your adaptor on floppy or some other suitable form (USB formatted as a floppy)

I think you may have missed it but as the XP CD is booting at the bottom of the screen was a message that said "press F6 to install additional storage drivers"

You should have hit F6

In a little while it will then ask you for those drivers and you just point it at the floppy or other device set to act as a floppy.

Now it will load them and let you continue setup.

otherwise it will quite often fail as it may no know how to find the SATA drive.

Windows xp setup does not detect hard drive


You need to use the RAID/ATA floppy disk that was provided with your motherboard. It was supplied either on the cd or on seperate floppies.
When you have the disk in the floppy drive you press F6 when it asks at the very beginning of loading files in the windows setup.
When the setup asks load the RAID/ATA drivers and when you go to install your hard disk will be detected. You will have to get a floppy drive and plug it up if you don't already have one. There is a way to build a windows setup cd which includes the ata/raid drivers but it's often easier to just get a floppy drive.
