"I have not had any success with my Ination/Teac USB floppy. Just USB Zip drive and USB CD-ROM."
I'm thinking the floppy needs to supply it's own power and not pull from the USB port. If this is the case then a powered hub might work.
"I am wondering if its a hardware issue. Like a imedance mismatch or something. I am thinking about adding a small pre-amp. Are you going to try the Sound blaster DOS files or WIndows files?"
I don't think it's a hardware issue since the sound is fine w/the AOLtv software. I'm going to try and load the SB drivers for DOS.
I'm sure we'll need a working BIOS to boot from another device. There are a couple of people on this board who have made some progress w/decompiling and reflashing the BIOS. But at this point in time there isn't a working edit module.
If we could just get access the to the file system I'm sure we could find a wealth of information w/the existing software. Too bad we don't have anyone that could write a driver to mount the VxWorks partition under another OS.
