FORMATTING A 1.44 MB DISKETTE
by kolla - 12/16/05 8:56 AM
I had a few diskettes (3 1/2" high density which had data on them in Fat 32 file system)which I deleted, and then I tried to format these diskettes again. I get a message "unable to format - the file system is RAW." Why did this happen? How can I format these in the Fat 32 mode? My machine is a P3-733 MHZ, running Win XP Pro with the NTFS file system.I tried formatting them from Command Prompt too: Format a: /u but no dice. Any help would be appreciated. I know, diskettes are cheap these days and I could just throw them away, but for me it is learning process.
