I recently upgrades to a floppy emulator, I use this on an embroidery machine, my problems are 1. i have to partition a USB Flash drive so that the emulator can read it at 1.44MB 2.must stay in FAT format 3.try to get as many partitions at 1.44MB on a 128 MB usb flash drive.

I am running XP SP3
Generic 128MB flash drive
i have read so many forums but not one person has seemed to actually do this.
