In the last few years the CF7+ compact flash adapter has become the de-facto standard device for the "unexpanded" TI-99/4A.
Still, it's kinda surprising that there is hardly any proper documentation or tutorials available on how to use this great device.
What I'm looking for is:
* Video Tutorials and/or text format tutorial on how to use the CF7+
* Video Tutorials and/or text format tutorial on how to use TI99Dir, CF2k, ...
* Starter CF7 image dumps with the most common utilities/games
Any volunteers? Would be more than happy to add the tutorials/images to the development resources thread

I have been wanting to do a CF7 video and I certainly will soon. I'm out on the road for the next few weeks, so before I left, I intended to make the video as had been requested previously. However, my cheap Chinese-made CF reader on my PC went bad and I didn't have the time/money to invest in a better one. Whether someone does this soon or not, I will be doing a 3 part series on the CF7.
1) Preparing your card and your system
2) PC-->TI CF "transfers"
3) TI-->PC CF "transfers"
may take me a month, but it'll be good when I can get it going.

Went through another eBay CF reader debacle!!! The one I got as a replacement has a bad USB cable and it's hardwired into the board itself. I need to get a decent one so I can make this video series!!! If anyone has one they want to sell or get rid of, please let me know so I can make you an offer. There are only two places locally who sell them, one is sold out and they aren't planning on re-ordering, the other place has good ones, but they're 50$ a piece. Blast!!

Thanks Howie. I'm not sure what's wrong with it... It looks like a cable, due to the symptoms I mentioned. But it may be the solder on the board itself. I am going to get my money back and just get a good one locally. Spending the extra money to know I have a quality product is worth it... I've just been procrastinating and I've also been cheap.
