we are using hitachi cnc wire edm machine,type 3q,model ms250,manufactured year 1990,
with h-mark 100 controller & 4axis simultaneous machining.

it has a floppy drive for data/program storage ( floppy diskette given by hitachi & physically
resembles a 3.5" 1.44mb floppy ).

we are unable to view/access this floppy in a pc.but it works fine in the hitachi cnc wire edm
machine. we are also not able to use normal 3.5" 1.44mb floppy diskettes with the machine.

in the user`s manual it has been mentioned that the floppy diskette should have 3796 sectors
& each sector is 256 bytes.

is there any way to use normal 3.5" 1.44mb floppy diskettes with this machine by formating
the floppy disk to specified format ? any software utilities ?

any help is appreciated
thanks in advance !

with kind regards
