That old toshiba has issues; i/o issues and a wiped hard drive/drained battery.
Still, I had a startup disk and win98 cd. It worked enough to get me a dosprompt and basic functions.
First I had about 6 old Privateer floppy copy disks that I format a:’d the hell out of.
Then I plugged in all the old ACS disks I had to check. Yeah... only the master disk was legit.
I plugged in the master again and this time hit M to make fresh copies.
So 5 brand new scenarios on 5 floppies.
My temp problem. My other laptops don’t have floppy drives. So, I will check all the library computers tomorrow. I hope at least 1 has a 3.5” drive.
If that fails, well I will be ordering:
USB 3.5” disk drive
Actually, I’d be ordering it anyways. So no big deal. I just want to have the dos disks done tomorrow.
I kept looking at forums mentions a Ctrl+f4 or something for switching floppies in d-fend if you set it up right. I kept scratching my head. If there is a way I hope to learn it and retain that. I also hope I can restore that toshiba as old tech came in handy. I barely remembered I had it until part way through my evening work out.
Upon remembering, I cut that short and came up from my yurt to the house and started digging. Found it in clutter. Pity that I/o error. I don’t know if I have dos disks around. The FDisk command fails.
With great sandwiches comes great nachos.
