|Message ||Useful if you've got an old sampler or something.
1) Cover the square hole in the corner of the 1.44M floppy with a piece of tape
(there should be two holes - you want to cover the one WITHOUT the
write-protect shutter). If you hold the disk parallel to the floor, with
the label side up and the metal shutter away from you, it will be the hole
on the right.
2) Open a DOS window.
3) Use the DOS command "FORMAT A: /T:80 /N:9"
Windows XP doesn't even support the /F:720 switch anymore, but explicitly
defining the number of sectors and tracks works just fine.
