Re: Offered: BeebOPL an 'Ad Lib / Soundblaster' sound card for the Beeb

Thanks Robert. My package arrived on Friday.

Thankfully, there are less components to solder than I thought there would be. Now where did I put my trusty old soldering iron?

Re: WE 30Mb Winchester

After getting the links from RobC, using ADFS explorer to copy the hard.img disk image to an ADFS one and then transferring it to a disk via serial cable, I've managed to get the superfo to format the winchester successfully.

Re: WE 30Mb Winchester

Re: WE 30Mb Winchester

Thanks Andy

Yep, the ADFS is inserted (v1.50). When the CTRL+Break is pressed, the winchester light comes on and after a while it reports a disc error so it is seeing it connected.

I'll try hunting around the websites for a WE formatter.

WE 30Mb Winchester

Just acquired a watford electronics 30 meg winchester but cannot access it on a master 128. Do i need a specific DFS rom or utils floppy? The master has no additional roms installed.

Thanks

Re: Hi there

You're a lucky guy Martin. My wife just says 'how much more stuff you buying on ebay for that cr*p'.

Should point out to her how much the stuff I binned a few years back at her suggestion would now fetch on ebay. She could buy loads of her mills&boon books.

Hi there

Hi everyone Was introduced to the BBC at school in the early-mid 80's. Learned to program it in basic and assembly in that time before finishing school and going into involuntary BBC separation. Tried a few emulators over the years but never got the same thrill as the real thing had given me. Thanks...
