After you upgrade to MS-DOS, you may be unable to access a Pacific Rim external floppy disk drive on an IBM PS/2 machine. Pacific Rim Systems has confirmed that no workaround is available at this time.


For more information, including driver updates, contact Pacific Rim Systems.

Any attempt to access the external floppy disk drive generates activity on the other floppy disk drive(s) and generates the prompt for the external floppy drive. For example, if drive B designates Pacific Rim's external floppy disk drive, drive A is activated with a B command prompt, and information in drive A is displayed.

The Pacific Rim Systems product included here is manufactured by a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
