it could be that the disks are older 720KB size and not 1.44MB size disks.....
Try looking to see if you can change the direction of what it should look at in the floppy drive area of the bios to 720KB and then when you get to windows, try it again to see if that works. Make sure you change it back later after saving the files to your harddrive desktop in a separate folder.....that way once you change the drive back to being 1.44MB in the bios and reboot, you can then send them to newer floppy disks.
Hello. I am trying to open 3 old 3 1/2" floppy disks and keep getting a message to format the disk. I know that the disks have the files I want because I wrote on the label of each disk. So I don't want to reformat and lose the files. How do I get to these files? I tried using an older computer, but that didn't work either. Please help!
