Any floppy inserted in the FDD causes a pop up stating "The Disk Is Not Formatted". It will not read or write disks, nor will it allow a format.
It is a relatively new machine. I have tried swapping out the FDD with a "known to work", and have tried repositioning the cable. Thanks For Your Help.

Is the floppy drive setup properly in the Bios? I had a similar problem with an AOPEN motherboard and floppy setup in the bios as 3 mode which is actually a Japanese standard instead of 1.4 meg IBM set along time ago. Another thing to check in the bios is whether the setting for the floppy controller is enabled.

The drive is identified and enabled in the bios. Thanks, I went in and checked it just now .... one last thing, I may have lost the floppy after installing an Iomega CD-R. Not sure about that as I didn't check it right away.

Did you check without the Iomega installed? I remember a while back Iomega had a problem with certain drives hogging resources.
