Here is my problem:
I have a ton of diskettes that were originally formatted and used with my MAC. Now I have a PC with Windows (not by choice, obviously). If I try to format these diskettes using the FORMAT disk program from windows, 60% of the time I get an error. [Update: this is the complete format option, not just the fast and superficial formatting one]. It says the disk cannot be formatted, or it says it formatted the disk, but when you try to use it, files always get corrupted or only some computers will read the diskette.

Any windows formatting utilities out there that do a better job of scrapping all that MAC formatting and starting anew with the Windows format? (Free utilities, please)

Tks in advance for any suggestions.
