    if the disk is ok just wack in it a few more times, try different angles push in upwards then push in downwards.
    Is the disk drive making scanning noises or sounding like RRRRR RRR RRR RRR shit
    or is it sounding correct?
    if not then the floppy disk is screwed which happens easily

    Have you tried any other disc in the floppy drive?

    Well depends if you can read any other disk. But you should check first if its installed and working, check in device manager. Check in bios also if you got it selected right for your floppy drive.

    If the drive won't read other disks then it's busted ($10-15 part).
    If other disks work then that disk is fcked (quit using floppys).

    I saw a 1GB pen for 20€ while ago, roughly $30?

    I lost a whole University essay once because of a dodgy floppy.

    That incident taught me that sending yourself an email with the file as an attachment is a much better idea...

    Probably it is the disk . I asume you tried it at school afterwards.
