View Full Version : How to save file to floppy disk

12-13-2004, 02:16 AM
Hi, I'm working on a multiplatform project which requires user login and save scores to diskette.
Is there any method or solution to this problem, using javascript, without calling a "save as" window?
I desperately need the solution as soon as possible. S.O.S!!!

thank you in advance.

I'm pretty sure this isn't something you can do in html or javascript, not because my knowledge of js or html is that great (because it isn't ;)) but because if a website could do something like that then any website could just safe any file (virusses for instance) on your HD without your permission...

...does that make sence?

tq ruben..
hmm..really?..actually i'm developing interactive CD using macromedia flash MX 2004 and for the next project, requires multiplatform OS. The problems occur when we want to save datas/files into floppy disk. Their said we can using shared object+java script..and for that matter i've no solution. Just because there are some company can do that.

If you are developing CD project, use third party projector tools such as Flash Studio Pro or SWF Studio...

i cud not decide wheather u asked for HTml or Projector but anyway these are the following codes for both


window.open(filename,fullscreen = yes)



well still i am not sure about thehtml one but even that will help to use as a hint to start ur search(if it does not work);

asn regarding ur writing of files to hardDisks i am damn sure u can do that through Javascript.though i am not a Javaprogrammer.

this can be done running the swf on a html window where the html window will consist of the javascript function that involves the System.IO operations in a function which can be written inside a Java function in HTML source.

that function can be called and the text we want to write can be sent as a parameter to the javascript throught flash. so dont lose ur heart i asssure u that this logic will definelty work.b'coz i am trying to make a XML generator using flash and javascript(thought i have not yet started it i have made my plans and research neccessary for this)

the javascript fso (file system object) can accomplish this. Dunno if it works so well on macs. In windows it will pop up a warning, but if you click yes it works fine. You can find info on fullscreen mac, and crossbrowser burning here:

they still make floppy disks?

01-10-2005, 04:12 PM
Yes they do... But I think the price of the floppy disk will be much higher than the hard drive price pretty soon... So... Buy them bunch when you can... ;)

Whahaha, lol, at my previous school we used to use them since the computers there were too outdated to put usb-sticks in 'em...
