Hi

Have a nice moment! Thanks for your question some floppy disks use protection schemes that do not rely on bad sectors and might not work. Your question was there a software to create image ignore bad sectors. My solutions are that follow the link or below instructions.

I hope it will be solved your problems.

To open a command prompt:

  • On Windows XP and Server 2003: Click 'Start' > 'All Programs' > 'Accessories' > 'Command Prompt'.
  • In Vista/7/8 and Servers 2008/2011/2012 follow steps from a.
    (Note: if at START screen in Windows 8 start at b.)

    1. Press keyboard ‘Windows key’
    2. Type word 'command'
    3. Then right-click on ‘Command Prompt’
    4. From menu click 'Run as administrator' (in Windows 8, menu is at bottom of screen)

Enter 'Y' if you receive the 'schedule this volume..' message.

Best of luck.

Thanks
