Quote from: "fmh"I have a Mono NeXTStation with a floppy drive in it. I found some 2.88 floppies today that were DOS formatted. This week for the first time in years I had the NeXTStation setup. I normally use my HP 712 or a 486 for my NeXT needs. I put a floppy in the machine and it prompted me that it could not use the floppy and asked whether to Eject or Format it. I chose Format and it said it would format it as NeXT file system with a capacity of 1.44. The capacity tab was grayed out so I could not select 2.88. I chose to format it anyway. It formatted it as 1.44 as it said it would. My question is doesn't the Slab have a 2.88 floppy drive in it? I swear I was able to use 2.88 floppies before in that machine but it has been many years since I last put any floppy into that machine. BTW the system is running OpenStep 4.2.
