Exactly my point.....from the floppy, instead of typing "format c:"
Next time type "format c: /s"
It doesn't hurt and can make the world when formatting older computers.
It was just an addition to your advise.

Whenever I try to read a CD, I get the message "CDR101 not ready reading drive D, Abort, Retry, Fail" (D: Representing your CD-ROM drive letter)
