Re: Flopy disk for konica picture show dated 1997.
Have you tried just opening the drive A from my computer? if you cant the floppy drive might be plugged in wrong, not enabled in your bios or the disk itself is no good. if you have a green light on the floppy drive all the time then its deffently plugged in wrong.

If you are saying that you can see the files but it does not show the pictures. Check the file association for that pictures file extension. All that it might take to make it see the picture is to associate the file extension to a picture viewer program.
you might need to have the program and other programs that were need to open and that made these files installed on your computer EG: word ,excell ,adobe , ....... also run the chkdsk utility click start click on computer to open you should see all your drives C: D: and your 3/12 floppy right click select properties tools check now tick in both boxes scan for and attempt recovery of bad files and sectors on this drive you should have no input while the chkdsk utility in progress any might damage this drive hope this helps you
It would appear that you may need to do a couple of things in order to restore the drive back to normal. I would disconnect the drive using the icon provided to this effect and doing it after the message says it's safe to disconnect it.
If the message says differently, I would still disconnect it, unles you're in the middle of writing, which you're not.
Upon reconnecting the drive, should the condition persist, I would recycle the laptop and try again. It does not make sense that a disk that you recently read from to burn a CD is no longer readable, unless the mechanism inside the drive had collected debris that caused the data on your floppy to be ruined. That would be an unfortunate disaster.
If rebooting the laptop still fails to read the disks, then try blowing any dust or dirt from inside the drive using one of those small canisters of compressed air that people use to clean their keyboards and other devices and try again.
Should the condition persist, try loading the floppy disks on another system to see whether they've been ruined by your drive.
If they are readable, then the drive would appear to be deffective.
Right click on the file and click "open with" on the new window select the program you wish to open it with such as "microsoft image viewer" then check the box that says "always use the selected program to open this type of file" then click ok and it should open in the program you selected
Maybe you had something with a magnetic field lying nex to the flopy drive and the code got mixed up and now the data is not readable. You can try with raw extraction like in CD's. you need to have a program to recover the data without having to actually decode them. I used to use Recovery Toolbox for CD's, I'm sure there's a simular programe for floppy's somewhere on the net. after recovering, things worked on the computer, although the dish was never usable since the day I got the message 'can't read data'/'no data'/'not formatted' etc. With floppy's I think that you'll never get the data from it by computer itself. I didn't get the data from the corrupt CD's, and they have much more advancer programs than floppy discs. so I recomend you find the program, get the data and throw the floppy away. If you have problems finding the program, post and I'll help.
