I seem to be having a little trouble with my Premium Softcard //e. I've got it plugged into the Aux. slot on my //e Platinum (for some reason my regular //e is being a horse's ass about both of my I/O Controllers for the DuoDisk I'm using, so I just went to the Platinum...it might not like standard Disk ][ controllers either but I haven't tested that far yet), and I've got the Premium Softcard //e CP/M 2.26 master disk, which the card requires--I don't think any other version of CP/M works with it (good move, Microsoft...). So my setup is: Apple //e Platinum Aux Slot = Premium Softcard //e Slot 6 = I/O Controller (5.25 Drive Controller Card) --> DuoDisk unit (All other slots empty) I tested this setup with standard DOS disks with normal results. So far, so good. Then I tried booting CP/M 2.26 (again, the proprietary master disk for this card) from the copy I made with my CFFA3000, and also from the CFFA3000 itself. Either way, it starts to boot, but just stops at a blank screen before anything comes up. If I put the I/O card in another slot, I at least get a message "Must boot from Slot 6." The LED on the card does not light up at any point. Possible issues I can come up with: -Dead card -Bad disk image -Premium Softcard //e incompatible with //e Platinum system -CP/M boot disk requires a Disk ][ controller and doesn't play nice with the Uni/DuoDisk I/O controller for some reason Any troubleshooting tips before I starting digging out all my parts, Frankensteining things around, and making a 10-ton mess of my computer room? Or, rephrasing that, is there a way to test the card without the CP/M software, say, from Applesoft or DOS?
Hi together, In order to make progress with the Kyan Pascal project, we need some Pascal program files to test the versions down to earth. BigBen was so nice to make an image of my Pascal programs from the university, which can do such a test in a very good way. So, the main question is, does someone know, how to create a .dsk file or a CP/M disk compatible format out of a SuperCard Pro-image? I just need the text files, that is all. Further, during the Fuji, I discovered an OSS disk with MS-DOS? OSS_BASIC_A_Plus_version_3.05_with_MS-DOS.atr Didn't checked this so far for real, but it would be great for Atari. :-) Thank you all very much for your help in advance. All the best.
I was using RespeQt with CP/M on the Indus as the B: drive. It works, but only for a short while. If I play Zork in B: it works if I play FAST. If I pause for any amount of time then I get BDOS Err on B: until I stop and restart emulation in RespeQt. It seems as if constant disk access is ok, but don't pause even for a minute or it stops. This happens ONLY with CP/M. Could it be misinterpreting a command from the Indus? Also, if the computer goes to screensaver and monitor power down, I lose SIO and must re-start emulation. Has anyone noticed this?
