Question Floppy Diskette problem..

When I try to open files on a certain diskette (that was working just fine). I get the following error:

"The document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions. Check the file permissions for the document or drive. Use the file open dialog box to locate the document"

There is nothing wrong with the file permissions..why is this diskette all of a sudden not allowing me to open its docs.? I tried to open the files from a different computer and it worked. But then I tried yet another computer and again it wouldn't let me open.

Also on my computer, when I put a diskette in. boot up takes a long time and then I finally get a message saying "Please insert a disk into drive a". Is there something wrong with my floppy drive or is it the diskettes that I am using?

ok, so I just did a search on microsoft.com and found that this is a known problem that requires Service Pack 3 to fix. I will try to download and see if it fixes some of my problems, if not I will be back.
