cheap non-flash removable random access media


Recommended Posts

Is it just me or does Linux floppy access get worse with every kernel update.

It used to be fine, floppy access and read/write times were just as good as DOS or windows. but with later kernels (i've only really noticed this on 2.4 and up) its just getting really slow. If i mount a floppy it almost crashed my system (on has crashed konqueror a few times) it takes about 10 mins to write 200k of data.

I know its not the drive or the motherboard cos this seams to happen on all the computers I've tried it on (but works fin using a windows OS).

Am i really the only person in the world that still uses floppy's?
