    Hello... I have a program that installs with a 5 disk set of installation floppies. The disks were copied to a flash drive and I need to copy them back to floppies to use them. I tried just copying and pasting the files but the install only ran a little bit and quit recognizing the disks. Is there some other way I need to transfer the data? Disk 1 contains a lot of files, the rest only have 1 each. Thanks.

    It probably needs the disks formatting correctly AND having the correct volume numbers.
