The LS-120 drive I used to back up Warp files a few years
back is not cooperating. I haven't used it in a while and I can't
figure out why it won't work now. I checked it on a Win xp machine
and it's fine there but eCS 1.2 doesn't see it.
Here are some of the statements in config.sys that I've been looking at. This is an external parallel drive.

BASEDEV=IBM1FLPY.ADD /A:0 /FORCE:2 /U:0 /F:1.44MB /U:1 /F:1.44MB
BASEDEV=DANIS506.ADD
BASEDEV=DANIATAP.FLT /RSJ /A:1 /U:0 /TYPE:WL /V
REM BASEDEV=RSJIDECD.FLT
BASEDEV=OS2DASD.DMD /LF
BASEDEV=OS2ASPI.DMD /SHARE /ALL

Hi WarpOMatic,

I'm kind of surprised... did you really had a kind of OS/2 driver for that parallel port model? AFAIK, there were no OS/2 drivers for these devices, except some SyQuest drivers... did you only attach the device or did you install some kind of driver in eCS?
Also, this could be related to how the parallel port ist set up in the machines BIOS (SPP, EPP, EPP+SPP, DMA channel or not, IRQs)...

Are you using something different than print01.sys? Maybe you require some kind of "bidirectional printer driver" or similar stuff... ?

Greetings
Thomas

I think you are right. It was a memory problem.... mine. My 120 mb
disk labels show several OS/2 files but maybe they got there through Win 98.
