IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR THE FLOPPY DISK ADAPTER FD-A2


This file explains the FD-A2 Setup Disk V3.07 for Windows 95/98/Me.
Please read it very carefully before you use Floppy Disk Adapter FD-A2.
(February 2001)

= = = [SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS] = = = = = =
Computer: IBM PC/AT compatible
CPU: Pentium or better
OS: Windows 95/98/Me
Compatible SmartMedia : 5V/3.3V, 2MB to 128MB
= = = [NOTICE] = = = = = =
1) ABOUT FLOPPY DISK DRIVES (FDDS) THAT DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE FD-A2
The FD-A2 cannot be used on the following FDDs, which have
different interfaces or specifications from that of a normal 1.44MB FDD:
a) External FDD connected via PCMCIA
b) High capacity FDD such as HiFD or Super drive
c) FDD supporting 2.88MB

2) STARTUP DISK
You cannot use the FD-A2 as the Startup disk.
Use the internal hard disk, normal floppy disk, etc. as the Startup disk.
After starting up Windows 95/98, insert the FD-A2 into the FDD.

3) UPGRADING FD-A1/A1S/A1N DRIVER SOFTWARE WITH FD-A2 DRIVER SOFTWARE
When you install the driver software (Ver.3.07) on your Windows 95/98/Me computer
where the older driver software (Ver.1.02 , 2.01 ,2.20 or2.60) is installed,
you need to uninstall the older driver software and then install
the driver software (Ver.3.07) by referring to the FD-A2 Owner's Manual.

4) DO NOT USE DATA COMPRESSION SOFTWARE INCLUDING THE DRIVESPACE
Data compression software including the DriveSpace is not applicable to
the SmartMedia.

5) NETWORK DRIVE
The FD-A2 cannot be used across a network.

6) BRAND OF BATTERY
The battery life will vary depending on different brands.
Based on our tests, Sanyo and Maxell batteries provide the most consistent
performance with the FD-A2.

7) TERM OF VALIDITY IN BATTERY
Try to use a battery which term of validity is long.
(The Recommended operating limit is normally listed in the back
of the battery case.) A battery, which term of validity is
short may not have enough startup power due to natural discharge,
and its life can sometimes become considerably short. In extreme
cases, a read operation can be executed, while a write operation
cannot be performed.

8) BATTERY LIFE IN LOW TEMPERATURE
The FD-A2 consumes more electricity when writing than when reading,
and with 5V SmartMedia than with 3.3V SmartMedia.
Especially, in view of the battery characteristics, the battery life
shortens in low temperature.
When you are using a notebook PC with an external FDD in an environment
of low temperature such as in winter, you may not be able to write in
about 5 minutes after continuous operation.
Use the external FDD in a sufficiently warm environment.
Even when you are using the FD-A2 in an internal FDD, if the ambient
temperature is low, it is recommended for you to turn on the PC
power in advance and warm up the inside of the PC.

9) NOTICE ABOUT THE DRIVER
Do not pull out or insert the FD-A2 while format utility is being
executed. If this is done, SmartMedia may not be properly formatted.
Also, there is a chance that SmartMedia cannot be used.
Do not pull out or insert the FD-A2 while writing.
A write operation cannot be properly done. Also, there is a chance that
SmartMedia cannot be used.
