It seems to be saying that the actual disk has corrupted, in which case there is not a lot you can do. Does this only happen with one disk or others?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Are you actually using a floppy or are you just getting that message on startup? If there is no floppy drive in the machine you go into the bios and disable the 1.44 floppy drive from being detected. If you do have a floppy drive, make sure you haven't left a floppy in it.

Agree with HopperRox, but also, if you're trying to read floppies (you don't state whether you are or not) and get that message, either the floppy is bad (quite common since few new floppies are being sold) or the drive is failing (less common, but possible). If other floppies fail, then it's the drive. Replace it.

Another example of sketchy information from the poster, so we are all having to make guesses.
