OK. I presume you've looked through Burn4Free's docs & FAQs & menus
for any mention of an option to use the floppy. I guess it's possible
I don't _think_ it had such an option - it's a CD-writer prog.,
product is looking for something to burn to, since it has trouble
finding the CD. But I really have nothing left to recommend. Maybe
post the machine's Config.sys & Autoexec.bat from "START, Run,
SysEdit" to see whether any shenanigan is going on their that could
cause a confusion between the floppy & CD-ROM.
I'm half-way through transferring the user to another PC ATM ... (-:
All right. Chances are the solution wasn't there, anyhow.
That may be best, if there are a lot of intermittent problems that a
fresh install hasn't cured. You could test the hard drive with its
manufacturer's utility first, if you suspect that. Get it from the WEB
site. To test RAM...

Thanks, I knew about simmtester and memtest86 at least, not sure about
the last one. But probably not going to bother - as I said, this PC
had been a little grumpy for some years, and I'm part way through
transferring to another machine anyway.
OK. Maybe that's best. Keep us informed.
Thanks or Good Luck,
There may be humor in this post, and,
Naturally, you will not sue,
Should things get worse after this,
