the pie chart is blue and it says free space 0 and used space 0 and available space 0.
I cannot format floppies or create rescue disks, etc.
What can I do to correct this? Thank you.

other than bad floppies. it may be a bad floppy drive.

I went through a new box of floppies and even when I go into My Computer and right click and select properties it shows the drive is full when there is no floppy in it. OS 98SE.
Is that any help?

try replacing the floppy drive. i had a few situations like that from cheap floppy drives i'd bought from an unmentioned retail store. i will say the one's i bought from fry's electronics are still working fine. better quality.

if you're in california, you can go to sacramento on northgate off I-80, there's another on in san jose. they now have an online store at www.outpost.com. i use the teac 1.44 internal floppy drive.

I'm not in California, I'm in Ohio. Will try the online store. Thanks very much.
PS: Have another question in the Hardware, Hard Drive and Storage Section. Good Luck!
