Quantum Fireball in MSDOS Compatability mode

  time and a half 10:08 29 Aug 2003

I have a dell P4 PC with a Quantum Fireball LCT20 drive which is running in MSDOS compatability mode in Windows ME. How do I resolve this to enable the drive to work faster?

First it's nothing to do with the make of Drive you have in your computer. Now the problem usually is in the Autoexec.bat file a TSR driver that windows does not like, open Notepad then open Autoexec.bat in it, now put a rem and space before each line in the file then save the file.

This is a Example from my own Autoexec.bat file


It does not matter about the @ sign just a rem and space before the syntax if it make the Computer start OK, you can re-edit the Autoexec.bat by removing the rem and space one line at a time and restart your computer when it starts loading in safe mode you will know to put the rem back before that line of syntax
