Author Topic: [SOLVED]How to save files to floppy and read them in another computer using VL?  (Read 2284 times)

I have two computers that each have VL installed. Each computer has a floppy drive. What I want to do is transfers files via a floppy disk. However, it seems that the files I save to floppy are only visible when the floppy is inserted in the computer where the save was performed. For example:

Computer "A"
file saved to floppy: test1.txt

Computer "B"
file saved to floppy: test2.txt

When the floppy is in Computer "A," it only sees test1.txt
When the floppy is in Computer "B," it only sees test2.txt

How can I make each computer see/access both files?

Problem solved by using KwikDisk (using "Konsole" is too unforgiving)

Are you "unmounting" before ejecting the disk?  The computer may not have actually written the files before you ejected it.  This also applies to flash disks/thumb drives.
