Re: MMC hard drive emulation?

Hi Jason, I've tried writing the 314mb dat file to sd card with win32diskimager and followed the commands you listed. After the Ctrl-Break step it comes up "NoMBR!" on the top left of the screen followed by "*". I'm guessing this is because the ADFS image file isn't in the forma...

Re: MMC hard drive emulation?

Another question about the ROM i tested it on the sideways ROM slot and work great :D. Have seen that is very easy to build an adapter to replace the MegaROM for a 27c010 EPROM.

Re: MMC hard drive emulation?

Sorry to reanimate this old thread, i read it from the start but got lost.
This is about using the Micro MMC thingy to get an ADFS hard disc image mounted on the micro ?.
If this is the case how it is done, theres a little guide or something on how to use the software ?.

Re: Purchased a RiscPC from ebay and need help on how to get it working

You should be able to configure a RAM disk and copy it across to that? In Tasks find RAM disc, click to the right and drag it out so there's adequate space for your SparkFS and the RO4Install.zip to be extracted into. Once you extract RO4Install, shift double-click on it, then navigate to the Data,...

With a bit of luck you can configure a static ip-address download an ftp program and download it. I'm not really familiar with riscpc so I cann't help you with that

If I look to the pictures you have most likely a network card installed. But I cannot see if it is only coax or RJ-45.
The Ethernet module is RJ-45 and coax.

What do you want it for, it is just the actual case you want, not the contents? If that's the case (no pun intended) I guess a teletext option would be best as they are the least useful.
