    Pretty much, yes.


    It would have been better to start a new thread, as people might look at the replies, then the first post and wonder what they have to do with each other.

    I'd suggest...

    When dealing with standard "HD" 3.5" disks, "2.0Megabyes" is marketing bullshite.

    Underneath the hood, a "1.44mb" disk can hold 2MB worth of raw bits, but a huge chunk of them are used for other...

    That is a good question. Not a lot of people actually included tested 2.88mb support as the drives were very uncommon. A clone 386/486 was not likely to have BIOS support, but many ISA cards had...

    Wow. That is evil. It is insanely dumb for anyone to use a remote account - depending on the very existence of Microsoft. Microsoft taking away options? That's nothing new. Let me guess, this is...

    Check the power getting to the drives. Try an alternate power supply. Since both started doing this at the same time, this seems likely.

    I have some drives that will intermittently behave...

    I'd recommend Norton Utilities 4.5. The undelete functionality is built in to the NU.EXE program.

    Do NOT copy or write anything to the hard disk until the files are recovered, or you could...

    Always set the BIOS to match the actual drive installed. ImageDisk does not really care much about what BIOS or DOS thinks the drive is anyway.

    You can view existing ImageDisk .IMD files with the...

    Compatibility issues with himem.sys were not all that uncommon. Some motherboards did require special support built in to himem. Just glancing at the help file, I see three himem.sys MACHINE type...

    You have obviously never met my mother. And if you ever do, never eat anything she gives you. She will swear it is still good because it's been in the freezer for the last three years and things in...

    The walmart near me is nasty, very ghetto. Bare concrete floors, the same 20 or so songs on the overhead speakers, never have prices labeled properly, the price checking kiosks have long since...

    You mean this isn't normal? That is about the maximum of how long modern electronics producers think a product should last before the cowsumer must throw it away and buy a new one.

    Mine does not have an RCA composite out, only the header. But the manual does say it can output composite on Pin 7 of the RGB port when composite mode is selected.

    Chuck, out of curiosity, what brands of disks were these that experienced the failures? Were there any known issues with how they were stored?

    Paradise MGC II Video Card

    I acquired a rather interesting video card the other day - a ~1985 Paradise "Modular Graphics Card" II CGA/Mono card. It is primarily a CGA card, and can output either RGB or composite, but in "Mono"...

    Walmart.com has not been a web site for their store in ages. It turned in to a multi-vendor portal like Amazon or eBay. So there is all kinds of stuff on there. A real pain when you just want to see...

    Bump.

    Don't all answer at once now. :p

    So I retired the monitor mentioned above a few years back due to too much CRT burn-in, and hunted down a replacement and an additional spare. Yesterday...

    Just another possibility - might consider having a vcfed.org specific image/file hosting server. Would be a little more of a hassle, but that seems to work ok on the Betaarchive forums.

    Is this even configurable in the forum software?

    BTW, the limitations the last time I tested are a maximum file size, for any file type, of 99K.

    When I upload JPGs, I always open them in an...

    I don't know about Sierra's copy protection, but some could take different code paths if they detect different kinds of machines.

    Then it is an "XT" style power supply, not an "AT" style power supply. Although most sellers don't know the difference. And some "AT" motherboards were indeed crammed in to XT style cases with XT...

    The heat sink is usually built on to the metal RF shield that surrounds the motherboard. The white goop is thermal paste, and is normally supposed to be there. It looks like yours is missing the RF...
