Is it just one particular floppy diskette that can't be formatted, or have
you tried with others?.. I also do not have Norton Anti-virus.. I have
McAfee Professional version 7.. in fact, I have used McAfee since it was
first intro'd and I have never had a virus on my system.. no doubt, some
will disagree with my choice..

I ran into the same problem until I read that suspending your virus
checker will let you format. Yep! It worked and I formatted my floppy
with out any problem!
