The IDE CF Card Package is still a very viable option even with the release of the Adamnet SD Drive and it really shines in T-DOS where you have four readily available partitions up to 8Mb in size to store all your files instead of them being split up over numerous floppy disks that have to be kept track of and inserted/removed from an actual drive. IE: try running WordStar from floppy disk or data pack and then run it from the IDE CF Card... case closed.
Just think of the SD Drive as an actaul disk drive where you have to look thru your disk case of 100 disks to find the one you want and then insert it in the drive... including the Adam Super Games.
RIGHT ON Niad. You are totally correct and accurate with your description. As to your next post about jumping ahead say 10 disks; no that is not possible, you must unmount the current disk then push NEXT 10 times, mount that disk and use it. It is just a matter of pushing the button 10 times as the name of the disk is displayed on the screen. Adding too many features makes the programming cumbersome and possible could slow it down, it only runs at the speed of a normal Coleco disk drive due to it's ADAMnet compatability.
