    No joy, I hooked up a couple of different drives and same error: "The device is busy" when trying to format a 720k in XP, Just for yuks while i had the case open i hooked up a known working Qumetrak 142 360k as the B drive and got the same I/O error in Windows 2000 and XP. It's an annoyance but i'm done with it, I can get around it.

    Thought I'd see what happened on my XP computers - but in every case, the bios doesn't even have 5 1/4" drives as a choice. So much for that.
