Have a large cahce of 1.44Mb Windows 98SE floppies that I need to access, but my XP-Pro says no dice! I get a popup error message:
'A:\ is not accessible
No ID address mark was found on the floppy disc'
There are several dozen floppies with text I wrote over several years, some on Win 95 computer, some on Win 98 & 98SE. The were readily accessible on those machines, so the address was correct there. Naturally they were properly formatted before writing to them.
Any hot tricks to break into these things?
I still have both of the old computers I could possibly get running, but trying to save myself the hassles at the moment. Also not ready to slave those drives to XP-Pro just yet.
