So I loaded a utility from tape I wanted to backup to disk.
Save gives me io error 60 on all 3 floppy drives.
Trying to load anything gives me IO error 50.
Disk manager gives me error 0 for all 3 drives attempting a non destructive test. None of the drive show any sign of life except the GoTek.
Powering on the PEB, only the flex card light stays lit. 32K flashes on then off. FDD does not light up at all.
Extended Basic SIZE command shows I have the standard console ram - no 32k showing at all. I've removed and reseated the cards.
Is there some diagnostic program I can load up? I'll save it to tape in emulation via real cassette to audio adaptor to try and load it on to the console.
My temp gauges show all 3 cards warming up, the flex card more-so.
I was hoping to make this utility save from cassette a quick thing as I'm off to do other things. But my next shot is going to be trying without the Side extension cable I purchased so my firehose would be out of the way.
But while I'm AFK, any suggestions and trouble shooting tips are so very welcomed. Please help. I'm panicking inside.
