PLATO DS/DD

Recommended Posts

This is something I've been wanting to do since I first read about it many years ago - Taking all the SS/SD Plato disks and converting them to DS/DD.

 

What does this mean?

It means that the entire Plato courseware has been put onto 139 DS/DD disks instead of over 450 SS/SD disks.

 

I primarily did this so I could pile all the disks on to one of my Nanopebs's - starting at Volume 100 (see attached Word file)

 

Note that I do not have:

Seperating Fact from Fiction

Physics Elementary Mechanics

 

Please note - These disks must be transfered as a complete sector copy - As Plato uses sector 359 (>167) as the directory sector.

 

I believe I have done them all correctly, let me know if not - And yes, It was a pain in the ass!

For those that may be interested, attached is 2 ways to go about the above.

 

The idea was originally conceived by Charlie Summerhill.

 

I went with the procedure that Michael Dorman came up with - West Penn newsletter.
