Floppy drive question

KevinGen asked
I reinstalled win2000 pro and now I get an error everytime I try to write to a floppy. It says "The media is write protected." I can put the same floppy disk in my other computer and copy the same files by copying them off the network and the disk works fine. Can someone tell me what to do or should I have tried hardware. I thought maybe it's a setting that's wrong in 2000.

You may try to remove the floppy controller and floppy drive by "Uninstall",
without restart and then
Action-Scan for hardware changes.

They will be reinstalled again.

See if any helps and let me know how you made it out.
