Re: PC USB to Floppy emulator?

in Milliways
I think you can consider using Ventoy . This is a game changer as it made dd-ing the images to the USB unnecessary. You just need to put the images you want to boot on the USB disk and that's it, and you can use all your disk space as usual. Very Interesting, not what I need at the moment. But …

Re: PC USB to Floppy emulator?

Using something like this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001344597523.html (not an endorsement, just an example) along with a Gotek floppy emulator (or similar) should allow you to simulate a 1.44MB floppy USB floppy drive using only hardware, if that is what you want want/need . That looks …

Re: PC USB to Floppy emulator?

Sorry guys, Honestly, I forget that I am dealing with technical people. I am so used to dumbing things down, that it has become a habbit. Sorry. Ok, so I have a Dell D800. I can just copy most old software off the floppy image to a directory and install from there. But things like Microsoft C 7.0 …

PC USB to Floppy emulator?

in Milliways
Hi, I can't seem to find the external Floppy emulator that goes from the USB on the PC to the floppy emulator. There are plenty that have the floppy cable connection, but I can't seem to find one that has the USB connection. I see that Phils Computer lab uses it, but the link to Ali express, on …

Re: Is there a Dual Head PCI video card?

I like my radeon 7500 pci, it has dv and vga and can do dual monitor. There are a few quad monitor units also. I think even a 8 monitor unit. Though it uses weird connectors. I’ve tried a loooot of pci cards and this 7500 is by far the best one I’ve tried. Fastest, least amount of issues. Thanks …

Re: Is there a Dual Head PCI video card?

Thanks mate for replying. Sorry, I should have been a bit more specific. Primary use: Programming Win 3.x / DOS using dual monitors. Maybe games, but nothing special. I am not really interested in games. I think the only game I ever played back in the 1990's the most was X-Wing. But anyway, I have a …

Is there a Dual Head PCI video card?

Hi, I am trying to find a Dual Head PCI card. There seems to be plenty of PCI-e. Do they even exist? I thought there was one with Dual DVI connections, but I can't find it or remember the brand. Cheers, Craig

Re: Process Explorer or Similar for Win 3.x

I have been kicking around the idea of writing something, in a basic form, like process explorer for Win 3.x. But at the moment I have been tied down with other work. That's why I was asking about process explorer for Win 3.x, I didn't want to re-invent the wheel. But bottom line, it will be a …

Thanks for the link. Yea, ProView is interesting. https://archive.org/details/WPV12_ZIP It is so strange to be from the era of Win 3.1, yet not to know about useful software. I feel like I must have been living under a rock. I suppose the Internet can be thanked for the exposure of knowledge.

Re: Process Explorer or Similar for Win 3.x

I found a shareware program called "Hogs" or "Memory Hogs" by Kamyan Software which doesn't show addresses, but shows total memory usage for each module, sorted from highest to lowest. The list of modules seems to include drivers, and also down the bottom it has fonts which take up 0.2KB each. If …
