Thread: Toshiba Libretto 70CT floppy issue

    Default Toshiba Libretto 70CT floppy issue

    All --

    I picked up a 70CT recently on eBay with Win95 installed. I swapped the hard drive for a CF-type and upgraded it to Win98SE to improve the performance and driver support but I'm having trouble with the PCMCIA floppy drive. I downloaded the 70CTCTRL archive which has the INF file in it, but even though I get the "card inserted" sound, it can't access the drive (it constantly access but doesn't seek). I tried the drive under MS-DOS and it works just fine, so it's purely a Win98 issue.

    Does this jog anyone's memory? It's not a huge deal, but I would like to get it working.

    {update: oddly, it seems to be working now after two reboots. I deleted the "standard" floppy driver and let it re-detect the floppy and it works."}

    Thanks!

    Hi Rich,

    You tested the floppy under DOS in the Libretto, right?

    Did the floppy work with whatever Windows you upgraded from?

    Yes and no (I never tried it in Win95). I think it had to do with how Win98 detected the controller (Standard Floppy) without the benefit of the proper INF file. Once I did that, and rebooted twice (for another reason), it seems to work.
