How do I format a double-density floppy with XP?I'm not presented with the options that were there in previous operating systems
As you would any other floppy!
OK.Put the floppy in the floppy drive.Go to 'My Computer' Right Click Floppy Drive.Select 'Format'Click Start.(May sure tab on flobby is not set on 'Write Protected'And Floppy will be formatted, it's that easy.
I've never had that much luck getting XP machines to work satisfactorily if at all with DD diskettes, 1.4Mb HDs OK, 720 DDs no.
Sorry, it doesn't work.The drive reads DD disks fine, but I wish to re-format some.There's only an option to format a 1.44 Mbyte (HD) disk - hence my query and call for help.
In Win XP type this in command prompt: format a: /t:80 /n:9
Thanks; that worked a treat. it reminds of the days of DOS 3.3! I'll keep it as amacro.What a shame it isn't easier. Does Vista do any better?There are times I wish I still ran W98.Ralph
