If only Willie Nelson were a nerd.

Question: I'm trying to copy over a file from a floppy disk onto my hard drive and I get the following error:
Cannot copy 8772: Error performing inpage operation

The file is named 8772.dat
The other files from the disk were copyable, but not this one - and the file is not Read Only. I'm running Win2k

Help?

Thanks.

Thanks for the ideas though.

and i did not reset before saving a file. it's a disk from a vendor and i'm trying to copy over the files. i've tried two machines.

The floppy could be physically damaged. Try running some disk tools (eg. Scandisk) on it to see if there's a physical problem with it.

Otherwise, use "Diskcopy" to copy the entire floppy to another one and start from scratch again.

tommy is the weiner. thanks. ran scandisk and there were a few bad clusters. was abel to copy the file over, but i'm not sure if it fixed the errors.

the program comes up with errors, but that could be from a few things. and the errors are in japanese - since i don't have a japanese version of windows it just comes up with various ascii errors.

thanks for the help.
