A read Only Floppy drive!!

By hratchn ·
Well, we have a floppy drive that only reads, that means we can't write throu it on a diskette.Please consider the followings B4 answering:
1 - The drive works normally on another pc-s
2 - The dikettes used are not write protected.
3 - The operating system shows a successful operation of copying, but when you check on the diskette you find that nothing changed.
4 - When you try to format the diskette, it shows that it is formatting, but after the format finishes, you find nothing changed.
5 - you can't write on a diskette even if you boot the computer with dos.which let us think that the problem is not from the operating system.

So, we would really like to write on diskettes(with that drive, on that pc), if anyone let us know the solution.
OS : W98 SE(if that helps)
Thank you in advance.
