cannot copy-"no address mark was found on the floppy disk"

When transferring files to my floppy disk drive I get a Windows error
message:

"Cannot copy (files) no address mark was found on the floppy disk" .

At first I thought I had it bad floppy drive unit or maybe a bad
floppy disk. However, I tested three different manufactured floppy
drive units & different floppy disks, all with the same Windows error
message. How can this be fixed?

My MOBO: GIGABYTE-880GM-UD2H
TIA

Common errors:
1: not enabled in bios, or set wrong(720kb or 1.2mb types)
2: reversed floppy cable on motherboard(easy to get wrong)
3: reversed floppy cable on floppy(more difficult to get wrong)
4: non-formatted floppy's
Best to test floppies and/or drives on an old machine.

....or it might be a bad cable if the same one was used in each test.
