External Floppy drives Tags: BIOS Floppy Disk External Hard Drive Storage Last response: January 11, 2008 1:26 PM in Storage Share uddeholm January 11, 2008 12:55:18 PM I need a new floppy drive. I see there are externals now. So, the only reason I use a floppy are for things like bios updates, hard drive utilities, and raid drivers when installing xp. My question is, will bios see that external hard drive? Will I be able to access it from dos? Or should I just take the safe route and get a internal and install it? External would be nice, because I have 4 computers in the house, so then I can share it.

You can run the command prompt after you boot from it and flash your bios or whatever. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
