Re: Cumana CS400 40/80 switchable disk drive

Update: I've managed to get the drive to work after a bit of wrangling. Does anybody know if there is there a service manual available for these drives ?

Cumana CS400 40/80 switchable disk drive

Re: My BEEB appears to be deaf..

Thanks for all the help. I've verified that the cassette recorder is working correctly. It turned out to be a faulty serial ULA, having fitted a replacement it now works correctly.

Re: My BEEB appears to be deaf..

Thanks , I've put the beeb in cassette mode and now I get searching and record messages but still no joy.

Greetings

Hi All, I have recently purchased a BBC Micro B which I had to repair, lucky it was just a dry joint on one of the power spade connectors on the main board. I have also replaced the RIFA capacitors in the power supply. I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the 6502 as I currently own a VIC 20 and...
