I agree with the above answer. The message belongs to a PC floppy drive. Mac has no such message unless you are using windows on mac and a usb floppy drive. I am not sure about that. Thanks and wish you good luck.

Cannot access documents on remote diskette drive


ok this is definitely 1 of 2 problems.

1.) the diskette drive is damaged..

2.) the disk them selves are bad. These disk dont last very long and develop a white fungas on the magnetic disc itself.

to be certain get a disc you are re is working ,, and try it on a machine with a drive for it (dont know if they still exist).. if the disc works and does not work on your machine get a new drive..

if the disc don't work well then they are bad.

Formats a disk for use with MS-DOS.
FORMAT drive: [/V[:label]] [/Q] [/F:size] [/B | /S] [/C]
FORMAT drive: [/V[:label]] [/Q] [/T:tracks /N:sectors] [/B | /S] [/C]
FORMAT drive: [/V[:label]] [/Q] [/1] [/4] [/B | /S] [/C]
FORMAT drive: [/Q] [/1] [/4] [/8] [/B | /S] [/C]
/V[:label] Specifies the volume label. /Q Performs a quick format. /F:size Specifies the size of the floppy disk to format (such as 160, 180, 320, 360, 720, 1.2, 1.44, 2.88). /B Allocates space on the formatted disk for system files. /S Copies system files to the formatted disk. /T:tracks Specifies the number of tracks per disk side. /N:sectors Specifies the number of sectors per track. /1 Formats a single side of a floppy disk. /4 Formats a 5.25-inch 360K floppy disk in a high-density drive. /8 Formats eight sectors per track. /C Tests clusters that are currently marked "bad." Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP syntax

FORMAT volume [/V:label] [/Q] [/T:tracks /N:sectors]
FORMAT volume [/V:label] [/Q] [/1] [/4]

volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name. /FS:filesystem Specifies the type of the file system (FAT, FAT32, or NTFS). /V:label Specifies the volume label. /Q Performs a quick format. /C Files created on the new volume will be compressed by default. /X Forces the volume to dismount first if necessary. All opened handles to the volume would no longer be valid. /A:size Overrides the default allocation unit size. Default settings are strongly recommended for general use.
NTFS supports 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16K, 32K, 64K.
FAT supports 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16K, 32K, 64K, (128K, 256K for sector size > 512 bytes).

FAT: Number of clusters <= 65526 FAT32: 65526 < Number of clusters < 268435446
Format will immediately stop processing if it decides that the above requirements cannot be met using the specified cluster size.

When using the format command, remember all information on the drive you wish to format will be completely erased.

format a: /q
Quickly erases all the contents of a floppy diskette. Commonly used to quickly erase all information on the diskette.
format c:
This would erase all the contents of your C: hard disk drive. In other words, unless you wish to erase all your computer's information, this command should not be done unless you're planning to start over.

Or
Right click My Computer-->Manage-->then go to Disk Management
and select the to format right-click it and click format. Thats it Your drive will format and You can also choose in which file system you want to format your drive.

My western digital hardrive freezesthe computer what should i do?


On anothre computer, go to Western Digital's web-site, and download their "Drive Fitness" software. Burn to CD, or write to 3.5" diskette.

Boot your computer from the diskette/CD, and run the test, to see if the hard-drive is "failing".

Note that Western Digital has a "Customer Loyalty" program.
If you have the serial-number from your current hard-drive,
you can buy a new hard-drive, online, at a discount.

Can't read specific Zip 100MB Diskette


Its probably a bad disk. The only way I have been able to fix these is to First launch disk utility THEN put the disk in. THEN run the utility. You have to do it in this order. The key thing here is utility has to be running first and then insert the disk "HOT"
Hope this helps!

Need a BOOT diskette


Hi,
I am not sure if this will work. But worth a try.

http://www.allbootdisks.com/downloads/Disks/Windows_98_Boot_Disk_Download49/Automatic%20Boot%20Disk/Windows98.exe

download the link and create a boot disk (floppy)

Insert a blank floppy and run the exe file to create it.
You need to create this some computer having floppy drive.

Insert this disk into your laptop and boot using this disk.

You should be able to boot in dos prompt.

now, you could browse through the harddisk contents by accessing C: or D: or etc ....

I assume you know basic DOS commands :)

lemme know if it works .

Wrong Volume


It looks like your computer is trying to access a cd in your CD rom drive. I may be completely wrong on this, but this is from my past experience. So once you put that CD in that drive its ok and you let it do do what its trying to do, then after that you take the cd out. If E is not your CD drive, let me know.
