Well that's typical on WinXP or other NT systems. So far, all Coco
emulator programs that talk to a disk assume there is DOS present on the
host Windows PC. That is not the case for NT systems so that is why you
are getting disk errors.
Far as I am aware, you have two recourses available. 1) Boot your system
from a DOS based floppy and use PORT. This assumes your hard drives are
FAT or FAT32. 2) Install OmniFlop and access your 3.5" floppy as a Coco
type 96tpi diskette through OmniFlop.
