Default floppy disks, and transfering files

sometimes when i copy files to floppy disks and transfer them to other computers they dont recognise it. It sometimes says it is not formatted but it is. Why are floppy disks so unreliable and how can i make them less unreliable. also this problem came up when i needed to transfer a word document (100kb). The easiest means seemed to be floppy. Since floppy disks are so unreliable and i had to switch bettween my only monitor. one computer has printer, serial and network port. The other one has usb, network, serial, printer ports. Is there any easy way to transfor the file.
thanks
wayne

You can use a flash card memory module, it is much reliable than a floopy disk, It cost a little, but you can store up to 1 gig of data.

sorry i havnt replied, yeah, i have a 64mb flash disk and i normally use that but on this occasion the old computer doesnt have a usb port. Dosnt matter now, i just retyped it.
i might invest into a bigger flash disk, or an external HDD case or sometihng.
thanks
