    I still program in a dialect of BASIC on a weekly basis for work. VBA behind MS Office (Excel specifically).

    It's really stretching the definition of BASIC, but it's a dialect nonetheless. .

    Essentially, it's plug the drive in and hope. Some drives work, some planars work.

    I never tried with my 8086 machine and it's blown up into pieces right now.

    If I select a 1.44M image, Checkit says no disk is present

    CheckIt is reporting the drive as 3.5" 720K, that seems like an issue.

    I have reset the PS/2 bios settings more than once, same results!

    Your program's error message.
