Floppy Drive - Not formatted message - Windows XP/2000/ME

I'm transferring files from a Win 95 machine to a XP machine using diskettes. When I insert the diskette into the XP machine, I get the "disk is not formatted" message. I can see the files on the disk when I view using the Win 95 machine. Any suggestions? Thanks, Bill....

    Default Floppy Drive - Not formatted message

    I'm transferring files from a Win 95 machine to a XP
    machine using diskettes. When I insert the diskette into
    the XP machine, I get the "disk is not formatted"
    message. I can see the files on the disk when I view
    using the Win 95 machine.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Bill.
