Can't write to floppy
Posted on 1998-11-18
This machine won't write to floppy or when it does it writes bad data. It sometimes wants to format a performatted disk. After you try to format it you get a damaged disk or write protected error. It reads disks from other machines
Have changed the drive, I/O card, and ribbon cable. Tried different slots on motherboard, added memory, upgraded video card, all to no avail.
This pc is 100mhz pentium, Award bios, 48 meg, sb16, ati video, teac cd, Iomega zip drive(scsi), printer is an HP Office Jet 1150c. Win95 (non ors2), use nav, main apps used are Office97 and Quick books Pro. I recently did a low level format and reinstalled everything from scratch. It seemed better but for a while but still is not right. 95 doesn't see any conflicts.
