my computer is approximately 5 days old. i need an internal disquette drive to make a ghost of my system, because usb is not supported by the ghost program, which runs from a bootable disquette. i only ever use the disquette drive for making ghosts, which is why i wasn't sure whether it was the disquettes or the drive which were faulty, and why i changed both of them.
external usb disquette drive is not possible. alas.
(also : what ? no cigarette ???)
