    I recently upgraded from Win98 to WinXP and am having difficulties opening my floppy disks. I keep getting a "disk is not formatted" message. Why is that and how can I view the files on my disks? :confused:

    There is information on these disks that I need to access immediately so any and all help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you boot with a Win98 disk and still see the other floppies.

    If so, and you haven't converted to NTFS, just copy them to the hard drive. You might lose any long file names but you will at least have all your data.

    You have replied to a thread that is from back in 2004- Bob Cerelli is still around, but I am not sure about the original thread starter GirlWithProb
