Saving info to floppy

Check your BIOS settings for the floppy write protect switch set to enable.

When floppy write protect is enabled in BIOS settings, your floppy drive always works as if the write protect tab is set to protect.

can i suggest to boot up with a bootable floppy and then try to read and write in the DOS mode..
at least to verify that the hardware for your floppy is still working.
