are we talking about the 3.5 inch diskettes or the 5 1/2 inch floppies? if its the 3.5 inch diskettes, they have a little lock switch in the corner, its a little tab that you push up and down. if it is in the lock position you wont be able to add or remove anything from it. the other possibilities are improper installation, floppy drive going bad, or sharing is turned off, in which case within an administrator account right clock the floppy disk icon in my computer, go to sharing, and make sure its set to let everyone read/write from it.
