I made a dreadful mistake by purchasing a USB external storage drive because it won't boot or allow any DOS recognition, nor will it allow me to image the drive using Ghost or Drive Magic 2002 Has anyone had a similar problem and solved it by using an unsupported driver? I downloaded and copied to my boot device a file called "duse.exe" It is version 4.2 and build 65. It works a couple of ways: Firstly an addition to your config.sys file adding DEVICE=C:\DUSE\DUSE.EXE then a whole bunch of options to be used as needed. Secondly it works from the autoexec.bat file. Anyway neither method would allow my computer to boot until i removed the line from the config.sys and autoexec.bat files. Also I keep getting boot errors about Vfloppy.sys not found and fake floppy file not present. These are emanating from the Drive Image program I am sure but one of the options for DUSE is vflop and it told me at boot that my C: drive does not support Virtual Floppy Boot files. To sum up please anyone who knows what to do or even knows there is nothing to do let me know. This is an expense that I allocated for myself but in doing so thought that i could install various OSs and be able to image my system to this new drive. It is a Maxtor 3000LE 120 GBs External USB2.0/1.1. I called Maxtor and all they could tell me was they were sorry but the senior tech turned me on to this DUSE program and said they don't support it but confidentially it works to give the drive USB recognition in DOS. :) Thanks much!
