Hi Guys,

I have a curly one here. I have floppy disks created from a 98SE machine with important data on them. I've upgraded to Windows XP and now the disks display the error message "A:/ is not accessible No ID address mark was found on the floppy disk".

As I understand it this is because the operating system is looking for a piece of data that 98SE floppies dont have. I have no access to a 98 machine any more, nor do I know anyone else who still uses Windows 98. How do I get the data from these disks so I can use it with XP?

Jace.
