Question about Computers & Internet
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 :)
