My Granddaughter used Microsoft Word to do her school papers, She ofter saves these documents to floppy and gives them to me to print out for her.
When I attempt to open the document in my computer for printing I get a notification that the disk is not formatted or is formatted for Macintosh.
We are both using PCs with Mictosoft Word 2002. My PC is a New Dell and her PC is an older unknown brand running Windows 98. :tazz:

Thankyou: Dan

Hi Dan

It sounds to me like the floppy disk may be faulty. When you receive that error message for a particular floppy disk, can your granddaughter still open the documents from that same disk on her machine afterwards?
