Use your Windows XP Computer as a Disk Drive for the Tandy WP2 & Citizen

CBM-10wp!  WP2DOS now operates under Windows NT, 2000 & XP with the 8bit-Micro Drive-Link Cable.


The problem with using the Tandy WP2 DOS program, WP2DOS by Chris De Herrera with Windows NT, 2000 and XP is now in the past.  

Assembled here at 8bit-Micro are Tandy WP2 Drive-Link (FULL-NULL-MODEM 9PIN) cables, designed to work with WP2DOS and Windows XP. 

These cables are fully tested, and came about when many supporters of 8bit-Micro were having trouble transferring files to and from the

Tandy word processors and their Windows XP computers.  One other problem discovered was that WP2DOS will not work under an NTFS

format or FAT32 format.  The second part of solving the problem was to run the program from a FAT formatted drive.  All DOS formatted

floppy drives fit the bill.  If you are interested in using your favorite word processor with your Windows based computer you can obtain

your Drive-Link Kits HERE.
