  1. I had a used floppy disk my friend gave me and I erase everything off of it to make a MS-DOS. When I tried and tried so many times to work it. It keeps saying Data error (CRC) reading error drive A. should i used a new floppy disk? i was just wondering that's all.

    Run CHKDSK on it from command prompt. By going to start/run and typing in CHKDSK.

    Regards Jase :)

    Floppy disks can go bad frequently. Whenever one gives me a hint of trouble, I usually toss it. Considering how inexpensive they are, try a new one.
