IDE card.....

Recommended Posts

Quick question. Does this ide card require a peb or other anything else beyond a 32k console?

 

If not, I'm interested as well. Not looking to spend hundreds on a peb.

yes it requries the peb.. cards go in the PEB sidecars go on the side of the console.

Sinphaltimus, where are you located?

 

I have an empty PEB I would be willing to send you for the price of shipping.

Where are you in PA? I was up in Erie a week ago. . .

 

 

Originally from NYC, I moved to the Poconos (North East PA) about 13 years ago.

No, Tennessee.

 

It is truly empty though. I have a suspect 32k card I could send as well. It seems to work, but I do not trust sny of the cards I had when I lived in Denver.

 

I had alot of help when I got started back in the TI world. Just paying it forward in a small way. If you want it, it's yours. It is a 99/4 push button model. You will need to find a flex card for it to be even usable, but at least you will have a foundation. Send me your info.

I will take good care of it to ensure that if the time comes, I can do the same for someone else. I'm grateful. Thanks.

hmm, last guess :) maybe this jumper does not correspond to the clock-chip ?

 

"0040 DIP-switch #1 is closed (should be open with a bq4847 clock)"

In post 100 I stated 'Yes, I saw that earlier when you wrote before. I'll try that tonight and see if something good happens. ;-)

'
Well nothing good happened and I haven't had a chance to go over the card(s), but I just got one of my trucks inspected to get the title changed from 'salvage' to 'rebuilt' and have freed up some late evening time (a lot of irons in the fire). Had to replace my soldering iron too. I am going to buy another BQ4847 and check all my solder points on all the smd chips,and then we'll see.

has a decision been made if a new run of cards are going to be used and what other clock chips can be used or will there be a complete new design?

 

I have heard someone (do not remember who) was working on a through hole version of the IDE card.

This is a great upgrade to the TI99/4a. No more 90K or 180K floppy storage limitations.

I understand that this card is supposed to support file time stamping.

However, I have not been able to get it to show any time stamps on my system using either either the CF card adapter or an old IDE hard drive.

I've tried it with the 80 column BOOT menu that shows 2 columns for time/date CREATED and UPDATED and nothing is populated for those columns on my files.

According to Fred Kaal's DSR documentation, that feature is supported so at the moment I'm not sure why it doesn't work with the daughter board clock BQ4802.

I'm wondering if this is because of an addressing issue to the clock chip.

I hope Fred can comment on this issue.
