How will I remove the write protected on my floppy drive because every time I tried to save on a floppy disk, it's write protected even though the disk was not?

Hi cords.
Check your bios settings for the floppy drive. It's normaly in the advanced settings or a submenu of same. For example, on this system the setting is located in the I\O Configuration submenu in the advanced section. Make sure the floppy drive is set to both R\W (Read\Write). Bios menus vary but will all have a floppy drive setting in there somewhere. If your good to go there and still have the problem, it's either 3rd party software causing the problem, a virus or bad drive.
Let us know.
