New ArcaOS USB driver and Floppy drive
« on: January 10, 2022, 06:15:11 pm »
I ran into a problem. USB drive of floppy disks does not reread the floppy disk when accessing the disk. In the 16-bit version, everything works successfully.
What can be done to solve the problem?

Are you using the AN USB drivers or the Lars his USB drivers ?

Problem only exists in the AN USB version.
Lars USB are working correctly.

It's a known issue and likely a fix will be coming

Hi Igor

I'm sorry but I don't understand your problem. Is it that the first time it reads the floppy and when you refresh the drive window does not reload it (reread).?

I had a problem with the USB floppy diskette unit, that some diskettes are readable and some other not. And the same diskette that is not readable on the USB floppy is completely readable on a diskette drive plugged to a floppy port. I guess this is something different.

Ivan's question is not about broken floppies.
It's about "kicking" the drive to read the disk when you insert a new disk.
I remember that I had a hell of a time to get that to work correctly. I wish AN much fun with it :-).

When you click on the floppy drive icon, it does not appeal and re-read the disk. Only for AN USB.
The initial reading of the disk occurs only when loading the system. After changing the disk, the FAT from the previous one can be recorded on it. This spoils the data on the disk.

I also want them to cope.  :)

You will need to write an AN bug report.
