(You know, the 8250LP use in production an EPROM with an adaper board.) This unit use a DOS 2.7, too. But it has the RRIOT with a diabled ROM for the Matsushita drives on the adapter board. (Any other RRIOT will alos work.) If the control of a Tandon drive and a Matsushita drive is the same, it's possible that anyone has upgrade the 8050T with the RRIOT of the 8250LP. The other question is, why use the 8250LP (and 8296D) an adapter board and the mircopolis RRIOT if an Tandon/Matsushita RRIOT exits?
