| Do NOT allow windows to format that floppy as it won't do any good what so ever. I suggest you read the floppies in true DOS mode only. Windows always does this with floppies as it doesn't really support the media. There will be nothing found to be wrong with any of the disks in true DOS mode. Don't even let win98 try to read them, boot to true DOS mode, read the floppy disks there and/or image them, then move the files to a hard drive where you can zip them and get them off the 98 system via USB drive or some such.|
My Atari still reads it's 30 year old floppies just like it was yesterday, don't know why anybody else should have different mileage. Old ain't enough to ruin them it seems. I'll read your floppies and/or image them for you on my networked 98 box, email you the results as an attachment if you like. Or send your floppies back with an enclosed USB drive loaded with files and images. lee_454ATyahoofigure it out. Don't forget to use a subject line that doesn't mention my huge wang, breasts, or full pouty lips. I'm supposed to be able to pick you out of the spam after all. Atari guys are doing this all time since most have sold off their outfits but just did come across some source code on a handful of floppies that they really wanted to look at one more time and maybe assemble and run on a PC emulator. No charge until we hit floppy number 20.
