Re: Riscpc internal IDE with only Cdrom - valid config?

Another fairly straightforward check would be to put the CD drive in your A7000+, connect the power plug but not the IDE, and see if it will let you open the drive bay. If it does, that implies that there's some signal coming from the IDE controller that's locking up the drive. (From a brief, unthi...

↑ Tue Sep 10, 2019 1:21 pm The scoring system is irrelevant if you can't get past level 1. How many screens do you have to kill to get to the next level? and....do they have to be consecutive?

Re: Riscpc internal IDE with only Cdrom - valid config?

I'm afraid I've got no experience with how Acorn devices interface with a CD-ROM drive, so I'm largely coming at this from the PC / first principles side. If a CD drive reads an audio CD, but not a data CD, I'd tend to conclude that it's a software/driver problem on your machine. Testing the same d...

Also, is the cable straight through for the hard drive and the CD-ROM? That would be good to know too. I don't think I've ever encountered an IDE cable that wasn't straight-through. The only reason that some wires are crossed over for floppy cables is that IBM-compatibles settled on jumpering them ...

Re: A7000+ desktop boot issues

Just a thought your boot might be ok now. Just be aware if you remove your !Boot and replace it with Uniboot, it will be like having a freshly built machine and consequently any app / utility etc that added things to the boot in the past will then potentially stop working or error in some way.

I feel like my !Boot was flakey as the machine has had some weird problems.

It maybe part of the boot download available here :

Worth a look anyway
I don't see any modules that begin either DNS or Resolver within the 3.7zip file.

Could it be somewhere else, also not in the actual !boot portions

Re: Possible HD problem on A7000+

I have confirmed that my CD-ROM drive is a read only. I do have 2 or possibly as many as 4 CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives.

I'm wondering about success of these working on the A7000+

What are people's experiences with this?

Thanks again in advance......

Re: Possible HD problem on A7000+

Thanks for this. I think I must have a CD-ROM with read only capabilies. I'll have to check further.

Just out of curiosity......do fairly modern writeable CD-ROM/DVD-ROMs work on the A7000+

Thanks again, slowly closing in on my issues.......

Edit: My machine is an A7000+ with an ANT Ethernet NIC I *think* this happens when no DNS resolver module is available. Check rommodules if anything is unplugged - every RISC OS version shipped with the A7000+ should contain a resolver module. HTH hubersn So, I've checked unplugged and rommodules. ...
