Hi, I wanted to format a floppy disk, it won't let me, I made sure it wasn't write protected, right clicked drive A:/ and clicked format. It said Windows was unable to format the disk. So then I tried formatting the floppy in DOS, and it worked. I went back to My Computer, and tried to explore the floppy, and it said that I needed to format it, what's going on?

I've had problems with floppy disks in XP.
I solved them by getting a USB floppy drive.
