Dear C64 Hackers, recently I've bought a huge thing on a car boot sale with the label "CP/M Cartridge for Commodore 64" on it. It seems to be in a workable condition (it means: no visible cracks on the PCB, the user port connector is clean, and none of the ICs seem extremely hot after 5 minutes of operation). I've found a small test program for it, written by Ruud Baltissen, on ftp.funet.fi; this test program is working well (at least I suppose so; it displays a short text message). I've also downloaded two .D64 files that are claimed to be CP/M boot disks for the cartridge. These disks, however, do not seem to work; when I start them up by LOAD"CPM",8,1 , the screen clears and a series of asterisks starts to appear, then random garbage fills the screen and my C64 crashes. Is there anyone on the list who has an original untouched CP/M boot disk for the cartridge? Best wishes Andras Petri, jr. - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
