Question about AST (230917-001) Floppy Drive
I have an old AST 486 and the floppy drive has quit working. I only use the laptop to update an Excel file and want to get the file off the laptop. Without the use of the floppy drive, how else can I get the document off the 486?
Old question...but if you are using an AST PowerExec to Ascentia 910N there is not way you are going to find a floppy. This is very old technology that does not have USB port etc. What I would do is go on Ebay and buy a cheap converter for the Hard Drive and hook it into an old desktop. I have done that and it is the best solution.

If you really sure that the floppy is damaged and canot read even a reformated or formated brand new floppy then are only way out of this to get your files is networking (Assuming that the AST 486 does not have USB port or a CD writer)
