I just happened to be slurping ROMs and decided to grab the D9090 set while the Colt was loaded and running. I have an 8-bit NIC in it and I use kermit to sling the data around via TCP/IP (most efficient for an 8-bitter). Marko didn't specifically ask me; I volunteered. > I uploaded the ROMs, along with the technical reference manual (scanned) to > ftp://ftp.zimmers.net/temp/ Cool. Saves me the scanning. I'll check my various versions against what you've got there. > Know where I can get a replacement HD mech for a 9090? I do not. I got my spare D9060 disk about 11 years ago and spent $75 to have it refurbed (new media which it didn't need and a new track zero sensor which it did - the company only did whole refurbs, not electronics only). I thought it was a lot of money at the time, but from this point in history, good luck finding a c. 1980 5Mb - 7Mb ST-506 disk just sitting around. ISTR that the TM602S is *not* a drop-in replacement for a real ST-506 (the precomp or RWC is on a different tract, IIRC). If so, you *could* reformat a DEC RD50 which is a *real* Seacrate ST-506, but that would ruin it for re-use in a DEC machine. This is why I want to reprogram the ROMs for other geometries. I have a box of ST-506-style disks with lots of ST-225s (go figure). I turn down disks of this variety at hamfests at $2 - $10 each because I have enough for the machines that I have. If I could make them work, I'd pick up another handful as spares for a D90x0. -ethan ===== Infinet has been sold. The domain is going away in February.
