Hallo allemaal, Thanks for the info! Frank, about your remark about the extension Dxx: the DEL-filetype is rarely used so I don't think there will be such an amount of DEL-files you need to use the extension as well for seperation of individual files. Your remark also remembered me about a question I wanted to ask. The D64-format limits you to 35 tracks with 21 or less sectors. Server64 which I'm working on right now supports D64. But I don't see no problem in letting it support a diskformat using 255 tracks and 256 sectors ("track" 0 is reserved as end-of-file). This leaves us with a 16 MB "floppy" :-) I also thought about the problem of handling such a big floppy concerning the directory structure. 256 sectors give us 2048 directory entries. If this is not enough, I don't see any problem in using other sectors reserved for normal programs as well. I only have to reprogram my "validate"-part of the program to check track 18 as well. It also should be able to use subdirectories, I only have to threat a file as a directory and create an extra filetype for it: DIR. Theoretically any standard C64, C128, C16 etc. should be able to work with this filetype. I only will have problems with programs executed on the computer who want to reprogram the drive to enable a fastloader or for other purposes. To support this I have to build a complete emulator and I leave that to Frank :-) Any comments and ideas are welcome. Groetjes, Ruud - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
