Description

When using non-standard floppy formats such as 1.68mb, VB cannot properly read or write to these floppies. Any write attempts result in write failures. Reads can sometimes hang the virtual machine using the floppy.

You forgot to specify your host and guest OSes.

More info may help.

Opps. Host is Windows XP. Guest is many including FreeDos and Windows. It even refuses the boot a 1.68mb floppy. Under XP Guest, a simple dir returns garbage as if the FAT is corrupt.

Floppy was created with WinImage which uses FdFormat. It contains a working copy of PM8 compressed.
