HEEEELLLLPPPPP!!!!!

Postby Whopper » Sat Nov 11, 2017 4:19 pm

I have received and fitted an MMC interface. and now I am looking for some pointers as to instructions / manuals / oracles / sacrificed goats etc as to learn how on Earth to use this thing.

Among the huge amount of things I have to learn are -
Is there a size limit on the SD cards?
How is the SD card formatted?
What do I do when I hear the computer muttering "Bloody amateur" behind my back?

If any one can assist in my progress along these lines I would be most grateful.

You asked this same question earlier, in a different thread, and both Charlie and myself replied:

It's best to ask a the question once, otherwise it gets confusing for everyone!

Thanks Hoglet,

I know I double posted. In my (weak) defence I didn't know that there was a second page. :oops: Going blind in me dotage.

Thank you both for your help. I'll have fun sorting through the wiki and trying to get the MMC adaptor working properly.

Still wish the machine would stop muttering though.

maybe reading the manuals about mmc will help, further more if there are limits or problems some of us maybe can solve them. there are different mmc roms now if you have a beeb b there is smart-spi and i always forget the name of the other roms #-o :mrgreen: :roll:

how to find the manuals search this forum
