I am planning to order some parts from Best and saw that they sell a ROM Upgrade for the Indus GT. Does anyone have experience with that and how does it compare/relate to the RAM upgrade? Is the RAM upgrade required to speed up the drive or is it required only when you want to run CP/M (which is an urge I seem to be immune to as I had the heart to sell a perfect working Amstrad 8256 for a sum so paltry that my aging memory refuses to recall it - and which BTW must be the climax of CP/M Disc format incompatibility with its 3" "floppies", a format that sadly failed to take the world by storm). Thanks to all Indus users and sorry for thread drift in OP
I have been looking for the DOS-XL disk for the Indus RAMCharger. I can't find it. Gooble was no help... One piece of advice, if you have RAM in your Indus, make sure there is a good insulator between the board and that drive mounting screw that sticks out. Mine (over time) developed an H0 error (Hardware). I folded a piece of heavy paper and put in between. Problem solved. Any and all versions of any Indus stuff would be appreciated. I want to tweak SuperSync again. Thanks in advance. Edit: Gooble was NOT a typo.
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?
Hello all retro Atari users, I haven't used my Atari for around a year now. I hooked everything up yesterday, and the Atari 800XL still works fine. However I am having severe issues with the disk drive. I was able to load one of my homemade Basic programs and some songs that I had composed. However, any further attempts to load any games, Dos, or reload the Basic program have failed. I get g4 and g5 errors on the drive on ANY disc that I am trying to load. I do not know much about drive maintenance (my young age relative to 8-bit computers may be involved). I do not know if I should try cleaning the head or if I need to put some kind of grease in the rails where the head moves. I know that the information on the disks is still intact (for the most part anyway), because I was able to load several things on my floppy disk, and later it would try to load and after a few beeps would give the error "blurp". After repeated attempts, it won't correctly load anything anymore, so that's why I think it's a drive maintenance issue. All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, James
