Re: malfunctioning USB FDD
Yes I know but I need a USB FDD to do a blind firmware upgrade on my Acer aspire laptop. The laptop only beeps after an unsuccessful firmware upgrade and it seems that the only way to revive it is to set some dip switches underneath the keyboard, create a crisis disk with the firmware on a floppy and pray and hope. It has been tried with flash drives without success. I like to try it with a HP floppy drive flash that seems to emulate a FDD with the switch in position 1 and act as a normal 1G flash drive in position 2 but I can't find any reports.
