Any ideas on how I can bypass or fix the problem? I sure don't want to start from scratch on a new software!

If you run FOW 7 in Fwin 98 compatibility mode, you will be able to export a GEDCOM file to the hare drive, but your notes will not have line breaks in them.
Or you can export the GEDCOM to a floppy or CD of a hard drive partition that is less than 2GB.
FOW 9 is the first one that recognizes the file system enough to export a GEDCOM to the newer larger hard drives.

Then The Compatibility tab,
Then put c checkmark in the box where it says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:
Choose Windows 98/ Windows ME.
Your notes will look messed up, but onec you get out of this compatibility mode they will be fine. --- You only need to run in compatibility mode when exporting GEDCOM files to the hard drive. Of course, you would have to change to or from compatability mode, before starting Family Origins.
