    Windows error N.5 access denied

    I was trying to use a utility to make a raid driver install disk on a floppy
    and got this error. What does it mean?

    Same issue here, but while trying to create a Diamond flash BIOS floppy. I've seen it suggested that you remove the KB941600 update, but that has to do with USB functionality. I'm going to wait to see if SP1 fixes it before doing anything drastic.

    Well I guess I solved it. I went to XP. I build the driver disk on another PC
    and the used to install the raid drivers for XP

    after having to deal with this same issue making a dfi floppy bios, I found an answer.

    -when you load up the WinImage file (the exe for creating disk image) make sure you run it without having a floppy in the drive.
    - it will search, and come back with floppy not found
    - now insert the floppy disk, and click retry

    and voila, it writes the image to the disk!!!!

    What an oddball solution, but it worked!

    This solution does not work all the time. You sometimes have to try it 2 or 3 times, but it's a workaround until a more permanent solution comes through!

    That could be a long wait - methinks the demand to troubleshoot floppy related quirks/issues died out years ago...
