Bridgeport EZ Trak Flashdisk question:
We have a 97í model Bridgeport EZ Trak II at work and its looking like we either lost a motherboard or a processor. The problem is the motherboard is a Baby AT form w/ a Pentium 75 Mhz processor. The system has no hard drive only a floppy and a M-Systems 8 Meg ISA Flashdisk card. When you start the machine it uses the Flashdisk to load the operating system. I have put the Flashdisk in another Bridgeport and it comes up so itís ok. The problem is the motherboard and processor are very dated and while we might be able to get one now a time will come that they will no longer be available. So I was wondering if anyone has ever been able to download the program off the Flashdisk? In talking to M- Systems it should appear as a file but some concern has been raised that simply putting it into a more modern motherboard/CPU setup might cause the machine to crash because the new CPU will have a much faster data xfer rate than the older P75. My thoughts are to get the program off the Flashdisk and put it on a newer IDE hard drive with should not have the xfer issues.
Thanks in advance,
