I bought a Glenside IDE adapter card quite a while ago, but haven't actually done much with it so far. Over the weekend, I decided to make a 3D-printed case for my card. Here are pictures of what I came up with:


Now that it's looking so pretty, I should actually use it! I have a Compact Flash adapter card that I plan to try using, and I can plug in a ROM using one of my CoCo EPROMpak cards. I'm confused about what options I have for using a hard drive under BASIC, though. What Disk-BASIC-like ROMs are there that understand the Glenside IDE card? Where can I find ROM images, and any utilities I would need to format a drive?

I may also try out Nitros9 with it, but I'd like to play with it in BASIC first.
