Floppy Disk help

By deeda ·
Hi, I am wondering if any one can help me. I have saved some information on a 3 1/2 floppy disk on a 98 machine and then edited it on a XP machine and now whenever I try to open the disk it asks me if I want to format it? I also tried to go into a command prompt on a 98 machine and it says Error reading data? I dont want to erase the data cuz I need it! Can anyone help??

Thanks in advance!

It's a corrupt disk. That simple.

You can try to take it to another system to read it, but when you get those messages, that disk is / has failed(ing).

I already tried it on different machines as I mentioned in my question!! As for the corrupt disk, yes that is what it was and I knew that but I figured out a solution by going to this website
