I agree with Ron 100%. I think your problem is misaligned heads and You
might as well just invest in another drive.  A sneaky test that you can
perform will prove or disprove this. Aquire or make a 720k disk in your
other machine. If the bad drive reads this you probably have have
misalignment.  Jim Harris

Subject: [24hoursupport] Floppy Drive not working

When I put a disk into the floppy drive, it says the disk needs to be
formatted, but the disk works fine in my other computer.  This happens
with any disk.  Is it time to replace the floppy drive or are there some
less invasive measures I can try first.

Win 98SE
System three or four years old

Thanks for your help~~
