Hi, all.
I am trying to create a bootable floppy in XP using the "Create an MS-DOS 
startup disk" function, but a few moments after I've inserted the floppy I get 
the following message: "An unexpected I/O error has occurred." Why is this?

I read in a forum of someone having a similar problem and he has replaced the 
floppy drive and cables without correcting the fault.

I have Windows XP and 512 megs of Ram. I have an 80 gb HDD, a DVD-ROM, a Ricoh 
DVD writer and a 40 GB Samsung removable HDD.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Kind Regards,
