The heads on the floppy drive may be out of alignment
You can try using another machine and load the floppy in and copy the contents to another floppy

something else to try (in addition to answer above, which is first thing to try) -- in explorer, click on the c: drive, then go back and click on the a: drive. i've found in some weird cases, it doesn't read the a: drive (gives similar error message) until i first go to the c: drive, then back to a:. something else that has sometimes worked for me is to slide the metal thing on the bottom of the disk back and forth a few times, to make sure it isn't "sticking". long shots -- hope one of themworks for you!
