AmigaOS 4.0 - About OS4 - Commands

DISKCHANGE AmigaDOS
Purpose: To inform the Amiga that you have changed a disk in a disk drive.
Format: DISKCHANGE <device>
Template: DRIVE/A
Path: C:DISKCHANGE
The DISKCHANGE command is only necessary when you are using 5.25 inch floppy disk drives or removable media drives without automatic diskchange hardware. Whenever you change the disk or cartridge of such a drive, you must use DISKCHANGE to inform the system of the switch.

DISKCHANGE can also be used if you edit a disk icon image and wish to see the new icon on the Workbench screen immediately. This is the only way to display an altered hard disk icon without rebooting.

Example:

If a requester appears and asks you to insert a new disk into your 5.25 inch drive, known as DF2:, you must insert the disk, then type:

3.OS4:> DISKCHANGE DF2:
AmigaDOS will then recognize the new disk, and you can proceed.
