Sabrent external floppy reader is asking me to format my floppy disk. how can a format it without deleting my files on floppy disk?


Your floppy disk drive may be defective. Also, Some floppy drives are manufactured differently. Your best bet is to find another floppy drive to read your floppy disk. You can try to take it to the nearest computer store and ask them to read it for you. If they can read it at the computer store? The Sabrent drive you received if bad. If they cannot read it the floppy is bad. If the floppy is bad you can try to download free data recovery software to attempt to recover your data, files etc. Good luck

Can you put a memorex 2 hd 3.5 in your laptop to scan pictures? if so how do you remove the disk from the plastic cover?


You can't remove this cover, if you do it will be damaged permanently. If your laptop have a floppy drive then you can do , if not there is a few ways around it, put the floppy in your desktop floppy drive and copy pictures to my pictures folder and then send them to your email address or place them as documents and do an attachment, but you must be able to insert this 2hd in a (floppy drive) or you can copy this disk to a memory stick!

UNABLE TO READ A NEW, UNUSED FLOOPY DISK THAT I PUT NEW INFORMATION ONTO. THE ERROR, AS I CALL IT ASK ME IF I WISH TO FORMAT THE FLOPPY. IT REFUSES TO READ THE FLOPPY DISK WHICH HAS MY INCOME TAX INFO...


The disk may have unrecoverable formatting errors making it useless. Or your hardware could be on the failure.

If you absolutely must , try purchasing or borrowing an external floppy drive and try to save the information to the disk on the external drive. If if formats and works then you know your internal floppy drive is bad.

If it has the same problems as formatting it in your internal drive, then the floppy itself is bad.

If I may suggest , in the future it would be wiser to save all your data to a removable USB Flash Drive. They are very very inexpensive and cost a lot less then a box of floppies :)

System recovery Floppy


you can purchase locally a usb floppy drive and download some small utilities in the internet that can be fit in the floppy disk, but i suggest that better use memory stick because it is cheaper and you can have more space than floppy disk.
