The problem was caused by having only 8 character reserved for the filename. You are supposed to enter only the name, without a path or extension. The extension is added automatically based on the disk type. I "fixed" this and you can now specify a path as well. The version can be downloaded here: http://people.freenet.de/x1541/IMGRD.EXE I had a look at the 4040 problem as well. It seems I use a ROM vector that does not exist in the 4040 DOS. I will have to rewrite my code to use RAM variables directly, because the RAM locations are equal enough in all dual drives. At least I hope so. I also tried to repair my 4040, without success so far. I checked the following: 1. repaired power cable 2. 3 blinks. $E DOS ROM bad, replaced. 3. 5 blinks. checked 6504 (swapped with a printer). checked 6530 (swapped with SFD1001), even made a 2716 EPROM for the adaptor board from the SFD. No success. Does anyone have an idea what can cause 5 blinks on a 4040 besides the disk controller CPU (6504) and RAM/ROM (6530)? Nicolas Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
