[access-uk] Re: Laptops with Floppy Disk Drives

Hi Andrew

Thanks for the information about the JAWS authorisation being done via
interent from version 6.0.  Yes, I know I can use a portable floppy drive to
transfer the authorisation key, but I was trying to avoid buying another
portable device if possible - but I don't think I'll be able to.

Thanks.

Hi,

I can say that I have successfully used a USB floppy to transfer the auth
key at work running 5.1 to the hard drive - the Dell system I use doesn't
have a floppy.

Having said this, from 6.0 the JFW key is using the Internet not a floppy.

Andrew.

Hi George

I would certainly initially need access to a floppy disk drive to install my
JAWS authorisation, which is still on floppy disk.  Are there any plans to
put the JAWS authorisation on to a CD in the future?

Hi Theresa,

These are few and far between these days.  The floppy drive
is all but dead.

A 128 MD USB memory key is about the price opf an external
floppy (£20) and holds the equivalent of over 80 floppy
disks.

Subject: [access-uk] Laptops with Floppy Disk Drives

Hi All

I'm looking at buying a new laptop and from my brief
searching around the internet this evening, realise that a
lot of them no longer have the option of an internal floppy
disk drive.  I know I can buy a portable USB floppy disk
drive, but want to avoid that if at all possible.

Can anyone recommend any particular laptops that still have
an internal floppy disk drive?

Thanks.
