Ticket #939 (closed defect: fixed)
write to floppy bug => Fixed in 1.5.4
|Reported by:||scheissdiewandan||Owned by:|
I think this is a bug in VirtualBox. VB is inverting the write-protect flag from the floppy. You will find if you write-protect the disc, your guest will now be able to "write" to it, and will probably even show the written files in the file manager for a while. Of course, it cannot really write to the disc; only to the buffer, and sooner or later your host will try to flush the buffer and the game will be up. At least, that's what happens to me, whether using a Linux guest or a Windows one.
this is rather simple to solve
