Hi,

 

I'm trying to transfer .dsk file from whtech website to floppy on my TI-99

 

I have a program on floppy which is called magicfm but it give me an error. It try to find a file called sload which is not on the floppy :(

It's probably the reason why it does not work. Is it?

 

I have a null modem serial cable, PEB, floppy drive (of course) and the rs-232 card.

 

Do you think if I order the disk magicfm from arcadeshopper it's going to work with my equipment?

 

I want to stop spending and get the right equipment to do it!

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Yves

The module in my peb are PHP 1240, I also have the PHP 1260 for the memory and the RS232 is a PHP 1220 and the drive is a PHP 1250.

Stock TI controller can only do dssd (180k). If you replace the ROMs you can get dssd 80 tracks (360k)but only with a 80 track drive such as a 720k 3.5"

Magic fm copies only single files not to/from dsk images so you need to unpack that dsk to tifiles files using tidir or equivalent first then send files to the TI with mfm

Thanks for all your reply.

 

My magicfm is probably not good. The previous owner just probably copy the main program on a disk :(

 

I order one from arcadeshopper :)

 

I'll let you know how it went or annoy you with more question! 🤪
