Unable To Format 120MB/1.44MB Floppy Disk
Posted on 1998-04-25
I am running NT 4.0 WS with SP3 installed. I am not able to format the 120MB or 1.44 MB diskette on my LS120 Floppy Drive. I can, however, copy files and delete them to either disks though. I do not encounter any error msg on NT startup and thus I do not think it is a setup issue for the LS120 Drive. No other programs was running when I encountered the following error msg when I tried to format from Windows Explorer:
Windows NT cannot format this drive. Quit any disk utilities or other programs that are using this drive, and make sure that no windows is displaying the contents of the drive. Then try formating again.
I was not able to format form DOS shell either, the error msg "Error in IOCTL call" appeared after I tried to format the disk in Drive A.
Kindly advise on the above resolution.
