Formatting might be poor. ] Hi, all I've just found this interesting piece of hardware in the "disk box" of my SX64 : a DCN-2692 that I had bought years ago fully mounted. Here is a link to the site of the author : http://www.students.tut.fi/%7eleinone3/eng.html -> I've never used the board and I'm unsure of what floppy drive can be put inside (should any 1.44 modern drive work or does it needs absolutely a 720K drive) -> Does anyone have any experience with this 1581 clone board ? I wish to transfer programs from my PC & any of my CBM systems that are physically located to far away to use a regular x1541 cable of any kind. This implies floppy transfer. I've tryed 1581copy but had problems with it - finding a floppy that would work and not crashing the W2K3 that hosts the drive - I've finally used a VmWare dos machine and it appears to start to work from the PC side - Did anyone Tried that ? I also noticed a strange problem with my real 1581 that have been stored in "perfect" condition. It seems to work correctly with CP/M floppies but very badly with native ones; i nearly can't read anything on it, just directory, times to times ! I have high difficulties to even format a floppy with it .... and discovered that when I switch off the monitor that I use, it works better - Any ideas ? Tryed to clean the 1581 but no flagrant progress. Regards - Hervé Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-04-27 17:52:39
