Perfoma 575 wonn't reconize Floppy Disk

I have a Performa 575 running System 7.5 with 20 meg of memory
I had a disk last week that wouldn't come of the machine, but I finally got it out and every since then the machine reads all the disks as locked even if when they are not locked.

This is the message I have been getting:
You can't copy onto the disk because the disk is locked.

Im assuming you mean a floppy disk and not a SCSI drive. You may have damaged either the Read/Write heads or the pin that reads if a disk is locked or not. Those pieces are easy to snap off if you force a floppy disk.

It is a floppy disk.
What can be done to make the machine able to read if the disk is locked or not

If the read/write heads or the pin that tests for locked/unlocked is toast then you have to replace the floppy drive.
