This software gives access to PC DOS and Windows 95 long filename format diskettes on BBC series.

The internet has opened up a wealth of archived BBC software which can be downloaded at no charge. However, being able to transfer this software to the machine presents a serious problem because of the need to jump the gap from the PC to BBC Micro. The DOSFS ROM solves this problem by allowing the BBC Micro to read and write PC format floppy discs including those from PCs running Windows which permits much longer filenames.
