why use floppy disks anyways? I dont even have a floppy drive on my computer. Go buy a jumpdrive or memory stick. I got a 1GB USB jump drive for 100 dollars.

I thought floppy disks went out style with 8-tracks, LP records, and pencils... :-°

Just out of curiosity, why would you want to reformat a disk and keep all the information? :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Probably getting the error message from Windows that it needs to be formatted. I've had Windows tell me disks are not formatted when I know it is because it worked in another machine. If you're using two different machines, it's probably because they're running different versions of Windows or has other hardware compatability issues. If that's not the case I have no idea. :-b
