    Attempting to explore an image, I received error message: "Cannot assign a drive letter to a partition from the image archive." What does this mean? What should I do now?

    Continuing this inquiry: When I made a second attempt, the drop down list displayed the relevant drive without a + sign. Thus, I can't designate a partition, can't try again. Restarting computer restores the listing, but just closing and reopening the program does not.
  3. I'll assume you, like me, are using TI 8. I get this every time. The little
    clock never finishes going round and round. I press Ctrl-Alt-Del. I
    _look_carefully_ at the task that is running. If it's _not_ MSGSERV, I
    cancel and go on waiting, then try again. When it _is_ MSGSERV (not
    responding), I end that task and no other. I then find that the drive
    letter was successfully assigned, and the hangup was just in the
    message telling me so. Exploration then works fine. (All of the above
    is in a Windows 98SE environment.)
