I have a laptop i need to run dos software on. The software will not communicate with the hardware via windows command prompt, it needs to be true dos.I have an A drive which i have used to create a ms dos disc and it boots to a fine, it doesn't allow me to access my hard drive though to run the software.My hard drive is C and is NTFS, i was told DOS wouldn't access an NTFS drive, so i have made a partition D which is FAT.Dos still tells me that the drive is inaccessible!Any ideas please?
click here for a dos emulator. I use it a lot for old dos programmes and it works well.
Is your drive IDE or SATA?
Fruitbat,How do i find out which one, i have just been looking through control panel but couldn't find it!Would it make a difference which one it was?Also the A drive is interchangeable with the D drive (cd/dvd) both of these register as usb devices, does this make any difference?
Try NTFS4DOS click here
I have found the answer to this problem, the new partition which i called D was not accessible from the A drive because the A drive was calling the D drive C.Quite simply, because as mentioned previously, the A drive (DOS) didn't recognize the NTFS it overlooked it when assigning Drives. A and B were DOS, so C became the next available recognizable volume.I just have to remember that the D Drive in windows is the C Drive in Dos.Hope this might help somebody else in the future.
