I have a feeling this need an IDE (PATA) floppy. I have four PC in house an=
dnone of them have a floppy. Tested the software using VM and it failed the=
boot disk write operation since Ensoniq had a very proprietary format.
If nobody has a set then I either have to order some (not expensive but als=
onot guaranteed to work since they depend on the firmware I have) or buy as=
econdhand PC that has a floppy as I doubt a USB floppy work work either(sin=
ce it does not have direct control of what actually gets written to the dis=
k). The nice thing about IDE is that it does not do a great deal morethan s=
eek to track and then write the whole track which is what I think theChicke=
nSys software probably does.
There are options on the site to write a bootable ZIP drive but they are fo=
rWin98 only.
Kind regards=2C nick. =
