Ok but then when sleuth reads the file, does it do that at a specific address?
Because there is no header or what so ever in the BIN file I want to load, it is not even 6809 code but a hex dump 6502 that I want to translate.

Then also, I can only get sleuth to work with a specific distro from Nitros9 (   VCCEmuDisk.vhd), on Nitros9 that came with the starter pack ( vcc + DW4 ) it gives me an "no permission error", when I look in the attributes with attr there is no difference in settings.

All new and mysterious ...LOL

Now I'm going to try it with the DE1

That is because sleuth loads the named file from the disk, in sector
sized buffers IIRC. Its the same with its address vs data type file,
that is an editable file on the disk but is loaded on a line by line
basis in alternating buffers IIRC.
