When system boots up, the Drive Space box pops up with Disk A highlighted and states removable drive on this computer. When trying to save a word document onto a disk to the floppy drive, the hourglass hangs there for several minutes, then message read Disk Utility has locked. Where do I go to unlock it and have access to saving documents onto floppy disk? Do I mount or unmount disk space?

Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.;)

Not completely sure if this is the problem but do you have Norton software loaded on the PC? If so, I don't use Nortons but I believe the setting to try turning off is called "Auto Protect".

I use Mcafee, version 4.5.1 and installed it about 2-3 weeks ago. I'll take a look if there's something there to check or uncheck. I'll let you know. Thanks for reply. :cool:

Try disabling the McAfee component called "Safe and Sound" and see if it still does it.

What OS is this? Looks like Win98....is this a zip or LS-120 drive we are talking about here? What is the message that pops up exactly?

And I find the safe and sound where in Mcafee? The OS is Windows ME and I'm unable using floppy disk to save to the A drive. It seems there a Disk Utility that 's locked.

I'm not sure since I don't use MCAfee.

What other software besides McAfee do you have installed on the PC? It may also be some other software locking it like FirstAid, Nuts and Bolts, etc....
