Me thinks that if half the time spent posting here had been spent filtering the fixtures files down to ones required, then the problem would have been solved days ago!

I have to say as soemone who first had a sirius that the Frog with a floppy was great step forwards. Say ten years ago usb memory sticks were hugely expensive compare with a 3.5" disk.

Not to mention extremely unreliable (could lose contents easily). Of course things are different now and the classical piece of unreliable hardware is the diskette - but at the time it was still in common use (and incidentally still is for computerised machinery). The original IBM PC (1981) had only diskette storage - no hard disk - and many others of the same period used the same or even cassette tapes!

I've got one of those USB Floppy emulator units previously mentioned to replace the original floppy in a Fat Frog.

Unfortunately, like a pillock I've lost the software CD that allows you you correctly format a USB stick.
I don't suppose anyone has the formatting software they could let me have a copy of?
I'd be very grateful!

TIA :)
