I AM USING BIAB 8 FOR YEARS , AFTER MAKING A TRACK
I SAVE IT THEN MAKE A 2DD FLOPPY DISK , I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS SUCCESSFULLY FOR YEARS WITH NO PROBLEMS .
BUT LATELY THIS DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE , EVERY TIME
I TRY IT TELLS ME THAT '' THIS DISK IS NOT FORMATTED.
I AM USING NEW DISK , SO THAT RULES OUT THE BAD DISKS
ISSUES .
I MAKE GOSPEL TRACKS THAT I USE TO PLAY SPECIALS IN CHURCH . I ALSO USE A ROLAND SD-35 FOR PLAY BACK
WHICH IS WORKING FINE .
I KNOW THIS IS THE OLD METHOD , BUT MAYBE THERE ARE SOME GUYS THAT ARE STILL USING THIS WAY.
I REALLY WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP

Sometimes a new disk will need to be formatted in your computer or SD-35

I used a SD35 a long time ago . I seem to remember an issue where I tried to use high density instead of dd disks . Are your new disks hd or dd . This may or may not be relevant to your problem . Have you tried reformatting a disk that you know will work . Are you using the same operating system to format the disk ?
Just suggestions . Something must have changed.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL YOU GUYS FOR HELPING ME
SOLVE MY BIAB PROBLEM ~~ UNABLE TO MAKE A FLOPPY DISK
I HAD A FRIEND WHO IS A REAL PRO WITH COMPUTERS .
AFTER CHECK MY SYSTEM , HE CAME TO A CONCLUSION THAT
MY MIDI DISK DRIVER WOULD PLAY A MIDI TRACK THAT I PREPARED BEFORE MY PROBLEM , BUT WHEN TRYING TO MAKE A FLOPPY IT SHOWED '' THIS DISK I NOT FORMATTED''.

HE ADVISED ME THAT MY MIDI DISK DRIVER WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY AND ADVISED ME TO BUY A NEW ONE , WHICH I DID FOR $13.98 AT FRY'S . AS SOON AS I PLUGGED THE USB CABLE IN , IMMEDIATELY IT WAS WORKING JUST LIKE OLD TIMES .

MAYBE THERE ARE SOME OTHER GUYS THAT IS HAVING THIS
PROBLEM , YOU MIGHT TRY THIS .
AGAIN , THANKS TO ALL YOU GUYS FOR YOUR INPUT .
