Question about IBM Computers & Internet
My A drive is external and wont open any disk...it wants to reformatt my disk but i have rare pics on it and dont want to lose them ....some disk will open some wont
If this is a floppy drive then the heads will be dirty and need cleaning just like the old tape player did.
I'm not too sure nowadays but you used to be able to get head cleaning kits for floppy drives.
Also i would suggest that when the drive reads the disks transfer your rare pics to the computer and also back them up to a flash drive or CD.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
