>Newbie question...how do I get these files onto a 8250 floppy for the PET to >use? >I also have a 4040 if that helps. >All I have is a PC to do any transfers. well my friend , speaking as a Mac man the first thing i can do is point you towards http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/crossplatform/transfer/CBM-to-PC/index.html and http://www.hut.fi/Misc/cbm/xfer/prlink.html and perhaps some else on the mailing list can help with this point ? how do i get things to & fro? 1a/ i've got a C128D & a 1581 drive along with a copy of big blue reader to read PC720K disks . (copy onto 1541 disk) 1b/ copy from 4040 to 8250 2a/ amiga 500+ using messyDOS to read PC720K disks ami64link ( which links into 1571 serial port ) 2b/ SIPOD on the 8000 turns it into IEEE-4888 interface , (8096 user port- 1571 serial port) so i can copy to/from the amiga direct to the 8250 drive as it then behaves as a native C64/128 drive . 2c/ the 1571 is unpowered so it acts as a junction box ! the archives are zipped so they can be uncommpressed on any platform except the 8096 :-< when they're undone they're revealed to be LNX archives . these can be dissolved on the PC with star commander , C64 /128 with lynx17 by will corley . on the 8096 you can use my LYNX8017C.GT prg to copy & recreate originals from 4040 to 8250 . my LYNX8017C.GT prg will only work on the 8000 series and can be downloaded from the same directory as the latest bunch of files . anymore Q's and i'll do my best to provide the A's :-> ------ email@example.com http://www.fortunecity.co.uk/skyscraper/perl/316 http://members.tripod.com/~petlibrary http://www.icpug.org.uk/national -------- - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
