my win98 back up info on 3.5 floppy isnt readable on my new win2000 machine, the win98 machine crashed and now i am trying to restore data to win2000 with the same program i had in win98. when i put the backed up disks in the new machine it tells me they are not formatted. i know the disk are good and readable to win 98 so how do i transfer the data???

Move the floppy drive from the 98 box to the 2k box.

It's not uncommon for drives to get out f allignment as they age, so much so that other drives can no longer read the floppies produced by the now misalligned drive.
