Hallo Jim, > but what would CI do? Change the image. > Should they be simply these 2 letter mnemonics, or go with the idea of > Memory-Write and be M-I, C-I, and R-I? A 2 letter mnemonics is less programming and therefore less ROM. But I only use this argument because I'm a lazy programmer :) > However, from the idea perspective, I like it.

I understand you want to mix FAT and D64. I meant this idea as an extension of X-IDE V0.3 where the 1541 sees the harddisk as one single floppy and nothing more. The idea is to use the CD (or C-I) command in the first place to change the "floppy", nothing more and nothing less. In this way users can at least already make use of the real capacity of a harddisk, although in a bit primitive way. IMHO this is better then to wait for a FS that still can take months. -- ___ / __|__ / / |_/ Groetjes, Ruud \ \__|_\ \___| http://Ruud.C64.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
