Can floppy work in nonDMA mode under DOS/Linux/Windows? (Developers)

posted by Laaca(R) Homepage, Czech republic, 03.12.2017, 22:50

I don't know whether BIOS uses the DMA transfers in diskette access (I suppose that probably yes) but they definitely must exist some low level utilities which handle the diskette access directly via I/O ports interface.
Try f.e. RESQFLPY on BTTR software archive (http://www.bttr-software.de/freesoft/disk2.htm)
