I don't remember the details, but it must be the one listed here: http://www.6502.org/users/andre/petindex/drives/progs/index.html Not sure if it actually reads the DOS1 FDC ROM though, I never had a DOS1 drive. It uses the $E0 drive code, which is required for the format code to be executed in a buffer (the format code does not fit into the FDC ROM, so the execute drive code $E0 has to be there right from the start with DOS1) See the DOS1 ROM listing around: FB2F A5 80 LDA DRVNUM FB31 09 E0 ORA #$E0 ; or with EXEC FB33 8D 03 10 STA JOBS AndrÃ© -- Empfehlen Sie GMX DSL Ihren Freunden und Bekannten und wir belohnen Sie mit bis zu 50,- Euro! https://freundschaftswerbung.gmx.de Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2011-08-16 22:00:04
