Recently, this notebooks external stock #EME279TC floppy drive has become intermittant! Replacing the CD-ROM in the Select-bay with it still results in same problem, where several loud audible head enables can be heard, following this error trap:
A:\ IS NOT ACCESSIBLE THE DEVICE IS NOT READY
The EME279TC floppy drive was swapped out and the same faults were observed. Any comments or suggestions?
Plugging in the Toshiba Companion diskette yesterday DID boot the 500CDT, BUT today it FAILED!
The Toshiba Companion Diskette DID boot the Tecra on the first pass today, BUT failed on second pass. Now that is what I call FLAKEY! Suspect pickup head oxide film and/or static buildup, BIOS, marginal drive belt?
