Im just wondering, are you trying this disk on two computers or did it just stop working on the same computer.
Windows XP can be very picky when it comes to floppy disks.
Dont format the disk until you get the data someway !
My guess, at this time is that the disk will work on the same computer that you saved the data on (School).
The problem usually comes up when taking a new floppy disk from computer to computer. Not all the drives are the same and this comes up especially
when moving from OS to OS. Say saving data on a windows 98 machine and then trying to access it on a windows XP machine.
This is just my guess though. Im not saying that it will work.
Also if you are getting the problem on one machine, (ie the disk was ok, you saved it was ok and then it gives you an error on the same machine) try
the disk again and again. Sometimes they act strange.
Search "disk is not formatted" on google or google groups to see what other people are saying about the error before you go ahead and do
Its been awhile since I used a floppy disk so take what I say with a grain of salt.
