Well I have an old embroidery machine that works off of DOS. I transfer the floppy's to my XP version computer in the other office in order to send files back and forth to my customers. My problem is, sometimes, not all the time, when I put the floppy into the XP computer, it states that the disk needs formatting. If I remove and put it back in the DOS computer, it recognizes the files immediately. I have about 20 disks like this that are not full, but, all have some files on them. Whenever I get this error message, I simply install a new floppy, copy the file and it works correctly in the XP machine.
Anybody have any ideas how to overcome this problem?
