I think your right mate. With low value items on Ebay they think if its less than a fiver you won't bother. Thing is, they didn't count on how skint I am
No you can t do that. Has to be done from the cmd dos thingy. XP took that out. I think 95/98/me (that were all the same) or an early service pack on XP was the last to offer this from the drop down. If only it were that simple
Thank you, Ill look into KoBold. Im taking it the idea is to format on the Atari and it will work in XP. But I'm also thinking that its no doubt down to this duff floppy disc that it doesn't work anyhow. So either way I need to get something working in place ultimately.
@ Spiny thanks very kind. Ill get up and running first as Id hate to waste your time. I do have disks and usually the sellotape over the left hole normally does the trick.
TOS 104 here mate so it should work. I should note when I have an old XP desktop PC with a built in disk drive I have done this countless times with ease
