    fromatting USB floppy drive

    In posted this same question on another forum but got two replies that seem to conflict with each other I need another opinion.

    I would put the replies here but the page just doesn't want to load, it is one of the Google groups, so here is the post as I put it there:

    We got our son a machine that didn't have a floppy drive installed and
    he still has the one of the old Sony Mavica digital cameras, so I
    found a Sony USB floppy drive and had it sent to him. His second
    machine that had a floppy drive went down and that was why he needed a
    floppy drive. He said every time he goes to format one of the floppies
    it switches to the C:drive and he has to stop it. Why would it be
    doing this, and what can he do?

    What switches to the C: drive? The format dialog, or the Explorer window in the background?

    If you have A: selected in Explorer and then right-click | Format, it needs to go look at another drive since you can't format a drive that's in use. What's important is what is actually written in the format dialog.
