Save Error

Ok. I'm frustrated with ancient technology for the moment... I just lost 'bout 2 hours of work over darn saving error.

I've saved many times, no problem before.. but now I am getting save error every time I wanted to save. If I format a new disk I can save good.

here is my question. Does deleting and reusing the same disk over and over make it less stable to save new data? because I have plety of memory on the disks I'm trying to save on, but I've used the disk for a long time without re-formating it...

Also some disks have more than enough space on them, but there are lots of little files like instruments on it. Is there a max number of files before saving wont work anymore?

What is your experience with save errors?

Re: Save Error

I have a number of floppy disks which should be a space, but I still canīt use the full disk capacity. Floppy disks are olds and I think they have bad sectors or something... I just bought 1541Ultimate2-drive and hope I could use that and Mssiah64 together some day.

Re: Save Error

Thats what I figured. I would really like to find a SD card replacement already. Flippy floppies are flippin' flakey.
