DOS 6.22 fail to recognize any USB devices

September 29, 2010 at 00:39:12
Specs: Windows 7, Pentium T4500 2.3Ghz, 3.0 Gb RAM
Custom-built computer, AMI Bios 2001, MSDOS 6.22 and Windows XP dual boot - Windows will not boot. DOS boots fine, but will not recognize any USB devices (mini-HDD, USB stick). AMD Athlon CPU, 1.33 Mhz, I.0 Gb RAM. BIOS and boot menu do not mention USB devices, but USB support is enabled in Setup.

I am trying to copy io.sys, msdos.sys and command com to a USB stick to use on my Acer Aspire 5734Z-4836 Windows 7 64 bit laptop. USB stick (Sandisk Cruzer 4GB) is formatted as FAT16.

MS-DOS 6.22 has no native support for USB devices.

You can't easily move those files. They are placed by a special program anyway.

Might look at freedos. It may be the most easy way to add in usb in dos.

Linux floppies and live cd's are also pretty easy..

Might look at making a bart's PE disk.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

This might help:

If you get dos to recognize it you may be able to just use the SYS command to transfer the system files.

Real men don't use AntiVirus; they just reformat
