Hallo Craig, > however in your source (larger that you linked to) you state that it > starts counting with 1.... I assume this is due to IDE protocols etc. That is correct indeed. But the C= drive always start with track 1, track 0 doesn't exist and in the link system it means that this sector is the last one in a row. The track is copied into IDElba1, the sector in IDElb0. This means that the very first sector of a C= disk, track 1 / sector 0, is found at sector 256 of the harddisk. This scheme also means that the first 255 sectors are free for our own use. In fact, having 'only' 255 tracks at our disposal, I'm thinking about using these sectors for the BAM. -- ___ / __|__ / / |_/ Groetjes, Ruud \ \__|_\ \___| http://Ruud.C64.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
