Hi,

I tried a simple command of formatting a floppy drive 
#fdformat /dev/fd0

It comes up with an output 
 
Errors encountered:

cyl Head Sect Error
0     0       1   no address mark in ID field
0     1       1   no address mark in ID field
1     0       1    no address mark in ID field
1     1       1   no address mark in ID field

etc  
I am using freebsd 5.1. I had no such problems when I was using version
4.0

Could you help?
