  1. Floppy disc drive.
  2. :P OMG! Thanks for the response bud, caught up here in the latest interfaces, forgot 'bout the basics.......lol
  3. People tend to forget the basics, but hey I bet everyone here has.
  4. Lots of folks don't think floppy drives are useful anymore.
    Anybody trust a Windows BIOS update? How about an on-line BIOS update?
    I don't...

  5. Still doing the floppy thing myself. Don't use it much, 'cept for old drivers for old equipment...

    Done it many times. I have had many more failures from a floppy based update than Windows-based. I'm not sure if it was due to a bad floppy or what, but those are my stats.
  7. What about a drive emulator? Many boxes no longer come with an A:/ drive. Therefore I have been forced to use the emulator. It works quite well.
