Re: mitsumi floppy drive read issue
Then unfortunately your drive is faulty. Have you tried spraying a little compressed air inside to shake around the dust? Otherwise if you are without warranty then you will either have to get a new drive, OR, start using USB thumbdrives which are a lot more economical these days.

Probably having trouble reading the disk. Try another disk to make sure the drive didn't croak. Or you may have a corrupted disk. Floppy disks are notoriously unreliable. Hopefully you can put the pix on a different disk and try again.
If all you did was "select all" nothing is gonna happen. You have to move the files by drag and drop or "copy to." Computers are sophisticated idiots. You have to tell 'em what to do.
I can tell you just what I told someone else with the same problem a minute ago. Your computer doesn't support the floppy format you saved the data on the disk with. All you can really do is try putting the disk in every computer you can find until one of them reads it. So, basically, there may not be much you can do. Personally, I hate removable disks. I have that same problem with CDs all the time. Well, good luck.
The issue could be either the floppy drive or the disk. If you have another computer with a floppy drive or know someone that does try using the disk on their drive. If the drive cannot read the disk then the disk is bad. If it ok the external floppy drive could be bad. Keep me posted.
Sounds like you have a bad floppy drive. If you are unable to read a disk and it wants to format it so it can read it try letting it format a floppy with no data on it or with floppy you don't care about. If it can format and you can read and write to it, then bad disks. If not then you know you have a bad floppy drive. Replace and enjoy.
