It means that it is not a DOS formatted disk... The structures such as the File names, DIR's etc. is missing.

Not all disks are formatted, some are RAW data with a special boot loader. It may still work (if booted from).

You could format over it (although I dunno why you'd want to unless it really is gone).

BAD disks are not harmful to the floppy drive (unless they are physically broken).
