    I dont know what happened, but now, when i put in a floppyXP always says "This Disk is not Formatted" and asks me if i wanna format. It does this for all my disks. any help?

    Its damn annoying when that happens, i had the same problem a while ago.
    Floppy Disks have a short life span...

    If you have Norton Utlities , run Disk Doctor on the floppy disk(s) and see if it says they have bad sectors

    Buy a new pack of floppies

    If that doesnt fix it , try the floppy drive or disks on another PC and see if you get the same error
