Re: bbc master hard drive winchester how to backup

I thought about this a bit earlier, the ADFS utils ROM should do it (in theory) as it says it allows you to backup a Winchester onto (endless?) floppies. That way you could then restore said floppies on the CF drive machine afterwards. I think the slight issue with doing this is it may be like spann...

Re: BBC Micro US Model UNB09 Board Layout

Are the roms in the middle of the board ? That would indicate a + model rather than a B. Does it look a bit like http://8bs.com/see/iss1b2.jpg ? See > http://8bs.com/insides.htm#BBC And > http://8bs.com/insides.htm#bplus Also > http://www.beebmaster.co.uk/BeebHelp/SerialNumbers.html

Re: Not so common (these days) 8 bits

Some interesting thoughts on this thank you. :) I considered a QL actually as well but they are usually lolprice and I tried a couple of emulators and could not really get to enjoy it. I thought about the Oric Atmos as well but I was not too sure on its software base. The Vic-20 is a thought even th...

Thanks for everyone who has ordered, the parts are on their way to me and assembly will begin next week.

Re: bbc master hard drive winchester how to backup

Its a 'real' Winchester opposed to a CF drive based ADFS solution ? There are PC based imaging utilities but these are for a CF card not a SCSI drive. I think you may have to DIY it the old way, ie either a stack of floppies or suchlike. A utility such as TreeCopy / Copyfiles or possibly Archive (an...

Thanks both. I'll see what I can do.

I don't think I can run StrongEd as it appears to be RiscOS and I do not have a suitable machine or emulator for it. I may try to cheat this via studying the Basic part structure and then trying a direct edit on the disc image (a copy of it!) to see.. :)

JSW1 is OK. JSW2 is using the 'cut down' version (I think originally this may of well been tape based) rather than the disc version which loads screen data in sections as you play and this 'disc' version closely matches other platform versions of the game too. It would be very nice if we could have ...
