I/O ERROR 1785


I have a Compaq Presario 5240 that originally had Windows 98. I recently installed XP Professsional.

I am using this computer to write and I am writing using Movie Magic Screenwriter software. I write on a disk, but whenever I attempt to save
my work, I get a pop up box that says: Disk not properly formatted. I/O ERROR 1785.

Please let me know how I might correct this error.

Thank you.

All the best,

Everette

    This is Everette with the same I/O ERROR 1785.
    I am now writing to say that I do have a FAT hard drive.
    Is there another reason that the I/O Error persists?
    I cannot save any of my work.

    Please give me another solution.

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Everette

What type of hard drive format do you implemented (FAT, NTFS) if you formatted with NTFS. the movie magic will not recognized the format. it need to be FAT.

win XP will not use anything from a win98 program. If XP is installed you must either use the recovery discs or better, the original XP disc.

I am not able to install Windows XP on Compaq Presario CQ60-104TU


Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".

Use windows 98 to make a rescue disk (3 1/2 floppy)
use that emergency disk to repartition and format the hard drive. You can probley use fat16.

Partition not 100% on laptop 700 presario


From the description loo\ks like it's not a partition problem, but the Compaq CD.
Try to partition Hard Drive using Windows 98 bootable CD.
Try to install Win XP from different CD - doesn't have to be Compaq. Later you can download drivers.
