Thanks a lot. Great work as always! I have always been using BetterWB for my A600, but switched to BestWB now with 3.1.4. I'd love to have fat95 and cfd included. Would be much easier to transfer data when doing new installs.

OS3.1.4 doesn't necessary need fat95 because its CrossDos? was updated but you need to try if it works for you like you wish.

It's an easy operation, you simply need to do this:

- For BetterWBcopy copy SYS:Storage/DOSDrivers/ CF0, PC0, PC1, MS0 etc.. to BestWB SYS:Storage/DOSDrivers/
- For BetterWBcopy copy SYS:l/fat95 to BestWB SYS:l
- For BetterWBcopy copy SYS:devs/compactflash.device, mfm.device to BestWB SYS:devs

You can mount devices with the method you use on BetterWB, oppure manually mount CF and PC0 by typing from a Shell

Mount CF0:
or
Mount PC0:

I see that you use Fungicide as the anti virus software package. I had never heard of it and have always used VirusZ. Is a better virus program than VirusZ??
Thanks

Except that CrossDOS, according to source code, only appear to recognise pre MSDOS-4 partitioning, which probably is rather rare? At least I have had zero success in using CrossDOS in 3.1.4, the best I have managed is to have devices show up as NDOS/unformatted. Meanwhile, I have zero issues with FAT95. But who knows, maybe I am just making things up, trolling as usual... sigh.

@kolla:
The only information about CrossDOS I have is from thor his thread on a1k.org forum about OS3.1.4 little hidden features. Maybe you have a read there: https://www.a1k.org/forum/showthread.php?t=67528

This post https://www.a1k.org/forum/showpost.p...8&postcount=55 but it is worth to go through the whole thread.

Yes, I have read it, and been yelled at by ThoR for not having read original OS 3.1 manuals about CrossDOS (which btw I have now done, and it really did not say much). The big hint was when ThoR wrote that literally nothing had changed in the CrossDOS code in terms of detection of partitions from MBR since original OS 3.1 CrossDOS. With the OS 3.1 sources readily available online, it was then easy to find this piece of code, which starts with a comment about not supporting MBR definitions of MSDOS4 upwards.
