Please help, love the old games, just computer illiterate

Save disk doesn't work. I press f12, create a new disk, call it what I want and put it in the drive DF0. Still doesn't work. I then had a thought... What if the disk needs to be formatted/initialized. So from my Amiga forever thing i bought from that site, I started up a workbench (first time in a workbench) and pressed f12. Was able to format the disk here, but can't get it out of here (workbench) and back to the pc so i can load the now formatted blank disk into DFO when I have a game and I press F12.
What the hell is going on

You need to format some disks in game or with correct name. Instead try savestate in misc.

You're having this error because you nurse around too much. If you just stop that, you should be able to save a game in no time.

Just stop nursing around! OKAY!? It will make your palms hairy, and it's very very naughty.

literally any game

every single game, no matter what, i can't save. Especially RPG's. Can't get a single save on one of those games.

Forget the traditional save disks. When you want to save your game, press F12, click on Misc and click on Save State. This will save exactly were you are in the game and you can restore the state by clicking on load state at any time.

Like s2325 and capehorn said, just use savestates in WinUAE. If you still want to use a savedisk, have a look on the EAB file server (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633) in the folder 'TOSEC/Games/Save Disks'.
