I have this probem of where i can read/open files from my floppy disk drive but cannot write to it. I get the error message: "Cannot copy <filename.ext> : the disk is write protected. remove the write protect or use another disk" I am sure none of my disks are write protected and i have tried different disks I've done the following tests: tried another floppy drive - same problem, doesnt work tried a different cable - same problem, doesnt work uninstalled the floppy drive and the controller using device manager - same problem, doesnt work tried the floppy drive in a different computer with the original cable - and it works! I have also just installed w2k service pack 3 and booted into dos with a clean boot floppy and tried copying files in dos - still same problem. The motheboard is otherwise working perfectly and im using the pc now, the cable cant be faulty because it works in another pc, the, the floppy drive connector on the motherboard cant be bad coz i can read files from the floppy drive... what can be wrong??
