Anyone come across an issue on a Win 95 and Win 98 machine where when you go to save a file onto a floppy disc you get an error message stating that the disk is not formatted or write protected.

So you try different disks with no joy even brand new ones. You try to format the discs but it gets half way through then comes up with an error stating that the disc cannot be formatted.

I havent seen the machine yet but will do tomorrow and dont want the guy to buy another floppy disk drive if that aint the problem.

any help would be greatly appreciated but no inane comments please from people trying to boost there post score etc.


live well and love life
