floppy disks w2k

By dprtech ·
Can anyone shed any light on why Windows 2000 tries to format a floppy disk every time it's inserted, particularly if the floppy has previously been used on earlier Windows versions?? We have a public access ICT facility and this is causing us terrible problems. We also run McAfee virus scan, could this be causing the prob?

I would first suspect a dirty or out of alignment floppy drive.

For the $12 they cost these days, just replace the drive.

Don't think this is the problem, as it's happening with all of our 90 public access pcs running W2K. Any other ideas? Has anyone else encountered this problem?
