Ruud's CMD-100

Hallo allemaal,

I have a problem with my CMD-100 that I cannot explain plus some 
questions. At this moment an IBM WDS-3160S has been attached. It 
works fine AFAIK but it is old. First my questions:
- It has for example a CP/M PLUS partition but so far I haven't 
found out how to start up from it then to CP to it and issueing a 
SYS command to reset the C128. 
The MCOPY command should copy a partition an equal device. This CP/M 
partition is a 1581 partition so it should be possible to MCOPY it 
to a 1581 floppy. After starting the program and setting it, it load 
some drivers and then says it is configuring the drives. And then 
nothing, no drive activity or what ever :(
- I used FCOPY to copy files from a partition with the HD utilities 
to a 1581 floppy. Doing the same to a 1571 floppy ends up in an 
error. Still 836 blocks free so, what can be the error ????
- IIRC I saw a screen shot of a program showing the IDs of the 
attached drives, CDROMs or what ever. What program (or am I wrong)?

Now the problem: I cannot attach another disk :( I tried several 
disks and in most cases I got a " SCSI error 133". In one case #63 
and in another #2. In some cases the disk wouldn't spin up, even 
though it should IMHO according the jumper settings. FYI: that after 
pushing the SWAP8 & 9 + RESET button plus running the "CREATE SYS" 
(?? forgot the exact name) program. What am I doing wrong or
