I am running windows 98, the a drive wants to format any 3.5 floppy inserted. Once I format a new disk it will read and write on the disk but i can only use it on that machine. The floppy can not be read on any other machine. What could cause this?

I've seen that where the drive wasn't aligned quite right - can only be read on that machine. Probably time for a new one but can you read floppies from other computers on this one?

Let us know.
Probably wouldn't hurt to just grab a new drive - they're pretty cheap nowadays. You might even have a friend/co-worker that has one or more just laying around.
