I don't use a PC to transfer the files to the ZIP drive, Mark. I have a
Mac with OS9.1 and just format the Zip for PC, copy the files onto it,
then pop it into my CoCo Zip and use the PC-DOS utility to transfer it.
When I need to use a PC, I run Windows 2000 Pro on a VirtualPC
emulator and run the command line window. Worked on everything I tried
so far ...............
Also, no one has mentioned the cheapest and oldest method of
transferring a whole system from one CoCo to another, Mark, and you
produced it. I'm talking about your original SCSI interface and a ZIP
drive. How long have I had mine now? 5 or 6 years? I assume a system
backup made back then will still be good on your latest interface.
BTW - While we're on this subject. Boisy described to me how to write
to a CD on my Mac for playback on a CoCo about a year ago. Unforch, he
assumed I had OSX.x and the full Toast burning utility. I only have
OS9.1 and Toast Lite (OEM with the burner). Do you, or anyone else,
know how this can be done? I think I can make the Windows 2000 see the
burner. Is there a CHEAP Windows burning utility that will allow me to
