    have you tried different floppies? usually when it says it cant complete the format its because the disc is corrupted (although the floppy drive may have some kind of a grudge against you). if you havent already, try that.

    If you have a cd burner just burn it on a cd. If not then Email it to someone you know with a printer.

    You might just have a bad floppy drive. When one of mine went bad, it did something like that. Just goto the local electronic store or something, they are dirt cheap.

    Try restarting the computer and attempting the format again.
    You might also try using the command prompt (dos) and type format a:

    As for the disk utilities I am not sure, a restart usually clears up a few bugs.
    Have you ran scandisk on the floppys yet? Once I had 5 bad floppys, might have been due to fact that they were never used but old....lol.

    Hope this helps,
