After formatting on the TI, can you read sector 0 (which will be a 512 byte sector containing TI sectors 0 and 1) with the drive connected to a PC?
Well, I finally got to download a hex editor for Windows and then checked the various scsi devices that I've tried to format and initialize.
The Scsi2sd still has the dos format that was done on the pc prior to trying on the ti. Never formatted or initialized.
The Ez135 had been in fat32 from windows and it is now reading all zero's, the zip drive the same.
Apparently the formatting is happening, but as soon as it's done on these devices, for about 10 micro seconds you see a quick flash saying something like 'initializing' then a quick flash of error.
Then trying to read a sector it gives the can't read sector zero message.
I immediately take the device to the pc and open up HxD or also winHex and see just zero's not other characters period.
I have checked all the regular logic chips on the scsi card and they test good. Suggestions
