...restored the back up from my main card to one and it worked first try 


Bite me! <Evil Grin>


Ya I'll probably grab one of those off you next week because I'm really getting sick of fiddling with these...


...really wish I could find working smaller capacity cards though...with the flashrom99 (and FinalGrom soon I hope) all those disk based E/A3 & E/A5 rips are no longer needed since we can now load those programs directly from a cart, As a result 4GB is a bit of overkil (not complaining though - a working card is a working card). My original 256MB card is still not full (as I said I just wanted to get a 512MB  card working for Plato). PLUS I won;t be able to use my fancy-pants label!


Wanted to grab Tutankham (don't sell the last one before next week PULEEEZE!!!) and Megademo off you anyway, so may as well add a CF to the pile.

i have 4gb cards on arcadeshopper that are tested with my nanopeb, work great.. restored the back up from my main card to one and it worked first try 



4883 glorious volumes - 80 track, double-sided, single density!

I think this may be the best $30 I spent, Greg!


Geek stuff: Though my "modern PC" sees the 4GB CF as only a 3GB drive (a limitation of the card reader), that isn't important since I'm not formatting the CF in the PC as a FAT32 drive.

Considering the NanoPEB halves the 512-sector media inserted to prepare for its own 256-sector use (stripped down IDE interface), the math still works out as fully utilizing all the space available.

2,000,076,800 bytes = 409,600 byte volume (400KB floppy) * 4883 volumes =]
