I have some Partition Magic 5 floppy recovery disks but these will not work in XP or Vista PC. They do work fine in a 98SE PC.I have tried making floppies in the XP and Vista PCs but I keep getting the message to put a floppy into A: drive. They are just not recognised.I have seen this before where floppies work with one OS but not another. I have tried old floppies (many) but they work in 98SE but not in XP or Vista.I have googled but found no help. Is this a known problem or not?
Cant help you,but suggest putting recovery onto cd,or dvd, which ever is appropriate.Just a thought,does partition magic 5 work ok with xp and vista?If not maybe an upgrade of partition magic?
The problem is that I cannot get PM onto anything. I have about 500 floppies (I have not tried them all) which will not work in XP or Vista but work fine in 98SE. Not recognised.I have PM on XP PC but cannot make disks because neither XP nor Vista will recognise them.If I put ANY floppy into XP or Vista PC they are not recognised. Put them into 98SE PC and they work fine.
I have 5 PCs here.PM 5 works fine on 98SE.Same floppies work fine on 98SE but are not recognised on PCs running XP or Vista.I have PM 8 on one PC but cannot make recovery disks because XP/Vista PC cannot recognise floppy in A: I have dozens (hundreds?) old floppies which are recognised in 98SE but NOT in XP/Vista PCs.It is driving me mad.<scream>
If it were just one PC I would think it was a hardware (A:) problem but it is not. It seems OS related. On different PCs.
As i said,cant you make a new recovery disk using a cd,then throw all floppies in bin?
The CD option does not work for me. Why, I don't know. Anything that works / is made on Win98SE PC does not work / is not recognised on my XP or Vista PCs. Is this not widely recognised or is it just on my PCs?
Has nobody else experienced this problem?
