    I have a question how to get the backup files from the floppy disk to the PC and later on the USB or SD card? Our robot lost all parameters and the floppy drive. Now the only backup we have is on the floppy disk! We think to replace the floppy by the FlexiDrive but how we get to the backup data? Windows is telling me that the disk isn’t ready to read.

    Thanks for your help,

      Dear Johannes,
      Thank you for your contact.
      FlexiDriveMV is the best solution to replace the floppy drive unit on ABB S3 and S4 Robots.
      ABB S3 use a NON-DOS format and file system on the floppy disks. The ABB S3 floppies are no readable on a Windows PC. With FlexiDriveMV we include a software tool called FlexiImage that allows to convert and copy all your ABB S3 floppies to a USB stick or SD card.
      We are sending you more information flout FlexiDriveMV for ABB S3 to your email address,
      Thank you and Best regards, The FlexiDrive Support Team.
