I have a thumb / flash disk which when inserted shows me additional floppy DD along with another partition which can be used for data storage, similarly I have another thumb drive which shows additional CD rom Drive when Plugged( along with another partition for storage)

Any Ideas on how to create them ?????
i wanted to know because both the Flash disks are made bootable in the process
One observation is that the cdrom drive is formatted in CDFS with some files needed for booting

how is this possible ?????

    Looks like a corrupt driver somewhere ,what version of windows are you running.
    When you say "any ideas on how to create them" do you want to make them bootable?

    Assisted Solution

    The ability of a thumb drive to be bootable has nothing to do with the virtual floppy disk and CDROM dirve that you see.  Are you asking about making a bootable thumb drive, or are you asking about duplicating the virtual floppy disk and CDROM drive?
