Floppy Write Errors
Posted on 1998-10-12
I have a 486 slc 33.(isa)
I have added another IDE device(cd-rom) as a slave.
As a result my floppy drive(3-1/2, 1.44) writes errors.
The drive reads fine, but writing destroys the files such
that filenames "drop off" letters in the directory.
Windows 95 says there are no conflicts, as does MSD.
It does however, say that I have an unknown device using
IRQ 13.(I can't account for this device)
As soon as I remove the 2nd IDE device, the floppy is OK.
Any ideas what may be causing my floppy to go erratic when
there is a slave device installed.
