XRAM021 Question

Recommended Posts

I have 2 800XL's with ICD Rambo 256k upgrades. When I run XRAM021 to test the extended ram, both give me errors in $83. Both machines appear to work fine with SpartaDOS Ramdisk driver. Bewe ramdisk driver will not work on either.

 

Any ideas?

Bank $83 error and bank $87 missing? If so then it was discussed somewhere here on Aage and you certainly have 256kB total RAM not base 64kB + 256kB added (320kB total) and some banks are mapped to standard 64kB space.

XRAM021 always reports bank $83 as bad with the Rambo upgrade. This is normal behaviour. It also reports bank $87 missing.

 

I don't know why the ramdisk doesn't work, I have not tried that version.

 

Sorry I cant help with the ramdisk, but your Rambo upgrades are probably just fine.

Exactly!!

 

Yes the rambo appears to work normally on both machines. (I was going to dig out my third one and test it but I suspect the results will be the same).

This is the normal result with a 192k ram expansion. There is a note in one of the XRAM readme files about it.

Hello Steven

Nice avatar. You wouldn't happen to have found a way to have these made?
