I have a Mazak machine (Milling VRX 500), the interface runs on Windows 95. I need to transfer a large amount of data from the machine to my 4 GB Sandisk Compact Flash. But the CF drive is not appearing in the explorer, therefore I cannot access it. Can someone suggest what can I do to solve this situation. Another option is using Floppy Disk, which is ridiculously small, about 1.44 MB. I can transfer via the Mazak Software, but it only allows one by one file transfer (I've got a few hundreds of files). The process is really tedious, take weeks to accomplish this. Also, no USB port exists. Someone got any idea?
After more than a year of running Windows 95 OSR2 on the Toshiba Tecra 720CDT laptop, I'm have found that it is becoming unreliable. I already bought a Compact Flash to IDE hard drive adapter and I will use one of the SanDisk Ultra 8 GB Compact Flash card to use as a internal hard disk. I bought a Syba Best Connectivity 2.5" IDE 44-pin to Dual Compact Flash Adapter for $14.17 and I'm going to use the SanDisk 8GB Ultra CF card (SDCFH-008G-A11) as the boot device on the Toshiba Tecra 720CDT laptop and the SanDisk Ultra 8 GB (SDCFHS-008G-AFFP) card as the PCMCIA drive. This is especially the case since ATA-33 IDE hard drives are no longer sold as new. I'm considering re-installing Windows NT 4.0 Workstation on the Tecra 720CDT laptop after getting the CF card installed on the CF-to-IDE card although I should be aware that neither the Tecra 720CDT laptop nor Windows NT 4.0 supports hard disks and other media larger than 7.88 GB...so, I'm maxing out the hard drive and memory. Since Windows NT 4.0 uses the NTFS 4.0 file system, how well will Windows NT 4.0 play out when it is installed on the compact flash card? I personally found that compact flash cards are more reliable than MLC SSDs as far as I know. Thoughts, anyone?
Hey there! I recently got a technician to install a 32 GB Compact Flash memory card in which 29.8 GB is supposed to be usable, but I'm faced with a new problem. The BIOS isn't even properly recognising most of the 29.8 GB, but according to BootITNG 1.87 and MS-DOS 8.0 FDISK, only the first 504 MB is recognised! To make matters worse, FDISK from MS-DOS 7.1 is only recognising the first 24 MB of the CF card! I paid nearly $80 for a 32 GB CF card and an additional $4 for a Compact Flash to IDE adapter and I would absolutely hate to see that I wasted $84 on something that does not work correctly, if not at all. The Compact Flash card on the CF-to-IDE adapter is identified as a Sandisk 32 GB Extreme CompactFlash memory card with the model number SDCFX-032G-A61 and the BIOS identifies it as a QalDisi QDAFX-030G-(PM). I am using the CF card as bootable to attempt to reinstall Windows XP SP1 from the MS-DOS 7.1 prompt on the Compaq TC1000, but it turns out that the BIOS isn't even cooperating at all. In the main section of the BIOS, the BIOS version is 0F13 (BIOS date 2003-10-06) with the KBC version of 19.29. Serial number and asset tags are identified as KRD33905DJ. Would I have to use a dynamic drive overlay (DDO) to get the CF card in the Compaq TC1000 to recognise properly or other methods to get the CF card recognised at full capacity? If so, please post your thoughts as I'm looking for answers here. Update: The BIOS continues to misidentify the SanDisk 32 GB card as "QalDisk QDAFX-030G-(PM)". What's worse is the when I attempt to write the boot partition on the CF card, and when I either reboot or press CTRL-ALT-DELETE, all of the changes are lost! I already destroyed the 30 GB hard drive and is on the virge of ditching the Compaq TC1000 if issues aren't fixed.
