Acorn Disc Pack Utility Programs

Postby DutchAcorn » Sat Sep 02, 2017 7:29 pm

My Disc Pack seems to work perfectly but came without any floppies. I could use a 40T BBC DFS formatted floppy but would like to try and format and verify a floppy from the Atom.

Does anyone have an image of the Utility Programs disc (Format, Compact, Infall and Verify)?

I don't have them but on the acornatom.nl software archive there are tools that help you create it. You can search for the tools and use fpu2 to create an image.

Thanks Roland, I managed to create a 40T disc with the programs. I could not find load and execution addresses. I put them on &2900 (does that seem right?).
On execution all programs terminate with "error 2". So clearly I am still missing something.. #-o

It's not relevant anymore but iirc the start and load addresses are #2800..
