Hi, all of a sudden my system can't read one of my 3.5's, but it can still read my other dozen flops.
When I insert the rogue disk and try to read it, nothing happens, the drive mechanism just ticks and whirrs with the hourglass but the screen stays blank until the message eventually appears "Disk is not formatted", or sometimes "No disk in drive"
Needless to say, it is formatted and it is in the drive.
Luckliy I backed it up a while ago but there's still some new stuff on it, and unless I can access the disk, it's lost forever.
