  1. Datasheet here: MCP7951X-MCP7952X-Battery-Backed-SPI-RTCC-20002300C.pdf
  2. I hesitite to ask, but could you possibly make an ISO of one of these cards (it should ZIP down small if you just put a few files on it) so I can check there are no compatibility issues with the file system?
  3. SDX has among the best organised documentation of any A8 product, with table of contents, index, glossary, etc, all searchable. Unfortunately the manual has yet to be invented which reads itself for you, however.
  4. Seems plausible. I was reminded by the designer that calibration settings exist in the RTC to combat drift, but I'm sure this is to pedantically account for losses or gains of seconds per day, not 20 minutes.
  5. Weird. No time loss here, at least when the loader is managing the RTC. Are you observing time loss using the SDX SIDE3CLK driver, or the SIDE3 loader?
  6. Please ask Trub about this. I emailed him about this and other issues a week or so ago and haven't heard anything yet.
  7. Hardware issue, I'm afraid. Media change detection does a checksum of the entire MBR. I'll add joystick control to the PDM player in the next revision, anyway.
  8. You have an unholy mess on your hands there. Minor version bumps in the loader will not fix those troubles.
  9. Aha... so that's how I did it. EDIT: WTF am I talking about. I was using a VHD in Windows. Been a long day.
  10. No idea. I employed the block feature even more extensively. Cards look nice, anyway. Disappointing to see that none of the packaging shows pictures of Ataris.
  11. Used to have a 64GB FAT32 formatted test VHD here and the SIDE loader will indeed handle it without problems. I forget which tool I used to format it.
  12. Prepare 512 bytes/sector APT partition (say, D3:) as per user manual: https://atari8.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/APT-Software-Manual-8th-Edition.pdf Format it SDFS, then grab RWTEST: http://drac030.krap.pl/en-inne-pliki.php Copy RWTEST.COM into the APT partition, make if the current drive, then type RWTEST.
