This will probally only help about 1% of the people out there. But I found this out last night when I connected a old 5.25 drive to my old Pentium 200. If you have Data on a 5.25 floppy and you put the floppy in to read and Windows says Not correctly formated do you want to format, this is how you can get it to read. First say NO to do you want to format. Then lift the door (gate up on the drive). Then click to read again. It will say drive not ready. Then flip the door down to correct read possition. Then click retry. This worked for 10 diskes that didn't have tape around the centre to protect it. These were not being correctly picked up, but when you flip the door up the read head can move around and aligns the disc up perfectly. Then when you flip the door down it picks and can magically read the disk again. So I thought I would put this up for all the odd people that still have backups from 1990 on 5.25 floppies.
