Write protect error

By mckay_w ·
When i try to save to my A: drive, it tells me the disk is write protected. I can assure you the disk is NOT write protected and it happens with every disk. Occasionally if you take the disk out and put it back in again, it will then work.
Any ideas?

Write protect error

Clean out the floppy disk drive with a cotton swab. The sensor may be blocked. If the problem persists, I'd replace the floppy drive.
