Let me be more helpful Josh.
This happens while it's reading from the floppy?
1. make sure you're using a decent floppy. I had a box of 50 compusa
floppies a while back, and none of them were good.
2. do a low level format of the floppy on a UNIX box. This will
reveal the errors that won't show up during a Win32 format.
