Cool Software

vfd - the Virtual Floppy Drive

  • You have that shiny new laptop. It comes with everything, but not with a diskette drive. You download some driver which comes as a floppy image only. How do you unpack it?
  • You want to create a bootable CD that contains LAN drivers and other stuff so you can create a hard disk image of your notebook.
  • You use some banking software that insists that some security data be stored on a floppy disk.

In all these cases you had to get hold of an USB floppy. You had. Because now, you can download vfd from http://chitchat.at.infoseek.co.jp/vmware/vfd.html. It emulates one or two diskette drives with various capacities, does so either as file-based image or as a RamDrive (fast!) - in short words it is as if you had a physical diskette in your system.
