3.5 MAC disk from 1996 needing to be read in 2014

You'll have to locate / borrow a Mac with a diskette drive, or an external diskette drive that you can plug into your current Mac.

Possibly a Mac support/repair location will have such a drive. Or look to purchase such a diskette drive in the used equipment market.

My floppy dont read my diskette

Can a different computer read the floppy?
If so, then your floppy-drive has "died".

It seems to want to reformat almost all of my diskettes that are inserted into the floppy disk drive. I can't afford to lose all of that data. dan albright

This is very, very common. The original drive that the floppy disks, or this current drive if it has been handled roughly, was / is out of alignment.

Try using the original floppy drive that made the majority of the disks, if it is still available. Otherwise, you might try the floppy drive on an older computer. Floppy drives lose alignment over the years, and the user doesn't see it until goes to read a disk that was created a while before.

If the problem is that the disks created by the current drive are wanting to be formatted by the same drive, then the drive is damaged. Replacement of the drive is best solution.

For What Its Worth, I went through 3 MadDog floppy drives as found at Walmart. First 2 were oh so fragile. Third was bullet proof until I dropped my laptop, drive, external hard drive, and bag out the window of a 2 story building. I was frustrated with the operating system....

My floppy drive tells me to insert a disk when I try to use it

Sounds like you have a bad drive or the disk is corrupted. Did you try a different floppy disk to see if the drive is functioning?

How is info stored on a floppy disk

This is how it works,

  1. The computer program passes an instruction to the computer hardware to write a data file on a floppy disk, which is very similar to a single platter in a hard disk drive except that it is spinning much slower, with far less capacity and slower access time.
  2. The computer hardware and the floppy-disk-drive controller start the motor in the diskette drive to spin the floppy disk.The disk has many concentric tracks on each side. Each track is divided into smaller segments called sectors, like slices of a pie.

  3. A second motor, called a stepper motorrotates a worm-gear shaft (a miniature version of the worm gear in a bench-top vise) in minute increments that match the spacing between tracks.The time it takes to get to the correct track is called "access time." This stepping action (partial revolutions) of the stepper motor moves the read/write heads like the jaws of a bench-top vise. The floppy-disk-drive electronics know how many steps the motor has to turn to move the read/write heads to the correct track.

  4. The read/write heads stop at the track. The read head checks the prewritten addresson the formatted diskette to be sure it is using the correct side of the diskette and is at the proper track. This operation is very similar to the way a record player automatically goes to a certain groove on a vinyl record.
  5. Before the data from the program is written to the diskette, an erase coil (on the same read/write head assembly) is energized to "clear" a wide, "clean slate" sector prior to writing the sector data with the write head. The erased sector is wider than the written sector -- this way, no signals from sectors in adjacent tracks will interfere with the sector in the track being written.
  6. The energized write head puts data on the diskette by magnetizing minute, iron, bar-magnet particles embedded in the diskette surface, very similar to the technology used in the mag stripe on the back of a credit card. The magnetized particles have their north and south poles oriented in such a way that their pattern may be detected and read on a subsequent read operation.
  7. The diskette stops spinning. The floppy disk drive waits for the next command.
On a typical floppy disk drive, the small indicator light stays on during all of the above operations.
