DISKETTES and CDs
Your Apricot PC is fitted with a 1.44 Mbyte diskette
drive. This accepts either 1.44 Mbyte (HD) or 720
Kbyte (DD) diskettes.
Each diskette has a rigid plastic cover, with a metal
shutter that guards the disk surface. Never touch the
exposed surface under the shutter – you could deform
the disk or leave a fingerprint that might make the
diskette difficult to read.
Keep diskettes away from dust, moisture, magnetic
objects, and equipment that generates magnetic fields.
Also, avoid extremes of temperature and exposure to
direct sunlight. Otherwise, data recorded on the
diskette may become corrupted.
Inserting a diskette
Insert the diskette with the metal shutter
foremost, and with the label side facing
Push the diskette all the way in until it 'clicks'
into place. The drive's
slightly. The drive flap stays open, leaving the
diskette just visible.
