There must be something in the air at the moment because I also fixed an old D9060 last week. For me the problem was a failed EPROM for the SASI controller. After comparing what I extracted with my reader to the file on zimmers, it was only a single bit which had flipped. Stiction prevented the original Tandon 602 drive from spinning up to start with but I didn't realise over the noise of the fan. It unstuck itself after a few minutes and since then has fired up normally. As an added bonus, I was able to read the entire disk without any problems, 25 years since it was last used. I'd now like to extract a complete image of the drive to see if there is any deleted files that may be of interest. I was going to use the WMUTIL.PRG basic/ml program written by Andre Fachet and Bo Zimmerman to pull an image but does the concept of a .D90 image exist? cheers, Rob On 27/01/2014 02:04, email@example.com wrote: > "Ardidiou" as we can say by there ! > > I'm proud to annonce here that my venerable D9090 is now again in > operationnal ! > > For those here who don't remember, it survived to two (2) travels from > Germany to France (thanks to DHL) many years ago and a start of fire > at my storage location four years ago.
