Wordperfect: Cannot save to floppy drive

By austinh ·
I am using wordperfect 7 and I when I try to save a document to the floppy drive it wont work. I go to "file - save as" and go to the drop down list and select the floppy drive. After I select it it goes back to the default drive. I checked the floppy and it is working fine. How do you save to the floppy drive?

Wordperfect: Cannot save to floppy drive

A common WP problem,
WP haven't resolved this issue with Native Dialog boxes, Microsoft's recommendation is to ALWAYS save to your hard drive then transfer to A. Not too handy though.
Try this,under Tools > Settings, go to the Files settings areaand
DE-SELECT box labeled "Use Enhanced File Dialogs".
This Makes WP use
Windows' native Save dialog.
You should now be able to save directly to A.
Good Luck,
HS

You can also try typing the drive as part of the file name when you do the save as.
Ex. A:\FRED
