Thread: 360k floppy drive under windows 98

  1. #1

    Default 360k floppy drive under windows 98

    Hello, i have problem with my 360k floppy drive under windows 98. I can read or write floppys with no problems, but when i try to use WinImage to write DOS floppy image I getting errors. When I try compare floppy image with floppy disk i getting errors of all traces.

    Floppy image is from Winworldpc.com and its 360k. Floppy disks i using are DD 360kb

    The issue is probably WinImage. Try RAWRITE http://www.chrysocome.net/rawwrite

    I've seen images (or old floppies) that wouldn't play nice with winimage. I had a single sided, 160K AST driver floppy that winimage couldn't read, and when I made an image of it using other software, winimage wouldn't open the image. I've had similar results with 320K floppies as well. Someguy had the solution though: https://forum.winworldpc.com/discuss...es-in-winimage

    I'm not saying that is your problem, but it's something to be aware of.

    The site says it only supports 1.44 MB disks (if I understand correctly). Downloaded the SW and found no proof of support for 360 KB or other formats. On the plus side: it's written in Delphi, the source is available, so one can expand it with other formats.

    I have used that exact version to write 720kB disks many times. It won't create an image but will write one no problem

    The original poster has not clarified exactly what they are doing or which download they tried.

    But I will go ahead and mention that is is often advantageous to convert IMG/IMA 160k, 180k, 320k, 360k or even non-DOS 720k, 1.2mb, or 1.44mb in to ImageDisk format, as it gives you much more detailed control over the floppy drive:
