Aha, interesting. So I guess most people are using RAMFS as the default? I've no idea how to do that, but do now my setup doesn't have battery backup, so I suspect I can't change the order?

Anyway, off topic now, thanks everybody for your help - hopefully somebody else might benefit from it in future.

Sorry! I completely forgot about the SHIFT R BREAK
should have mentioned it earlier. It's completely normal and I do it too.

Just a thought - is it worth keeping an up-to-date (ish) index of the disks in the first post of this thread? I'm sure many/most users of the collection would find this very useful.

(As above, it could be derived easily from: bbcmicro.co.uk/ss.php )

Here is an Excel sheet I've created via the above page, containing just the info I find useful for finding games:

Not a bad idea. Here's your Excel spreadsheet in .CSV plain-text format in case anyone prefers it:
Perhaps it could be added to Mick's first post in this thread, or Lee's, which follows it?
