[Coco] Frustrated

Hi all,

As the subject says, I'm a little more than a little frustrated. For
sometime now, I have been trying to locate meaningful documentation on
the Nitros9 "DMODE" command. It's the one command that has been
ignored in every piece of Nitros9 documentation I have looked up. I want
to see more than what the "-?" gives. For example what are all the
options for the "TYP" paramenter, or the DSN parameters and what do
they mean. What is a TYP=20 for example? BTW, I know it is diskette.
But that is just an example of what I am looking for. I have a bunch of
disks I'm trying to read and can't because they get error 249, wrong
type 8-/. Or worse "permission denied". I know if I try to read the
directory of a RSDOS disk I'll get the 249 error, so that is not the
problem. So if anyone can point me to a more meaningful explanation,
online, that I can read and study, I would be sooo appreciative it. TIA

Hope to see you that the Fest.
