    Make a bootable USB Flash drive with all your CC3 Build Disk images on

    For anyone still running CC3 and using floppy disks or single build disk USB drives, you can easily and quickly make Build Disk images and have them all on the same USB Flash drive.
    See here. No need to ever see a floppy disk again! Works with any USB Flash drive (no special type of USB Flash drive needed).

    This works well assuming the BIOS of the machine supports booting off USB in this method properly. I have encountered (admittedly rubbish) core2 boxes that can't boot properly from USB, it starts but won't manage the actual boot. You can however burn disk images to CD as an alternative for shockingly old or bad machines. At any rate you are not 100% assured of ridding yourself of disks forever.

    This method maps the USB drive as a virtual floppy drive. It should work with most modern systems (and all RM systems). If you try it and find it does not work on any system, I will try to help get it working. Usually the problem is that it boots the USB Flash drive as a ZIP drive rather than an HDD drive.
