Have you checked to see if the disk is locked? The little sliding piece in the corner..... open is locked, and closed is unlocked.
Do what you want with the girl, but leave me alone!

Check what problemchild said, cuz its more than likely that, but also have you tried using the floppy disks on another system? If it works on a different system, then your Floppy Drive is going to be knackered.
I\'m drunk, and right now I\'m so in love with you.

Are you keeping your floppies near the monitor? The electro-magnetic field can corrupt the disks. Try to scandisk the floppy and see what you get.

This is a very common problem.
Do thorough scandisk (surface). Is this General Failure Reading Drive A. ????
I dont know how this thread got "extremely positive".
A person going to format/delete checks the write-protect notch. Is it??????

Are you trying to re-use the floppies, erase the information off the floppies, or just trying to figure out how this is happening.
