USB 2 upgrade? New Motherboard? Recent re-installation? ???? something else? Why oh why always this "Windows was unable to complete the format."
Posted on 2004-10-10
I have gone through some traumatic renewing of my PC after a crash of the HDD. Some changes and upgrades.
While there have been many problems, some seeming quite serious, only to be solved, I have now this one nagging, irritating, frustrating problem with the floppy drive.
One may be inclined to dismiss floppy drive matters as low importance, but no one who as just relied on his emergency boot floppies will share that view.
So, I have non-boot, regular joe floppies, which I had previously formatted on this same computer and A: drive, which invariably produces a "Windows was unable to complete the format." message.
