I say that a lot don't I? Sorry, but this is getting a little old.
I got the SuperDriver and was only dissapointed that it didn't come on a blue
disk with a red & yellow label. But I guess silly marketing stuff isn't
necesary with real computers, just pea seas.
The instructions were incredibly simple. Make a backup, boot from it and
And the computer locked up again. So please excuse me for repeating myself, but
Now I'd better quit that before the men in white coats find me.
My so-called brain is starting to work though. I suddenly remembered that this
is what happens when I turn the computer on with RGB-DOS (I don't have HDB-DOS
yet) with the controller plugged in but the drive off or disconnected. Turning
the drive off under NitrOS-9 doesn't change anything.
The drive, cable, controler, etc, work perfectly with RGB-DOS, so apparently
the problem is that the NitrOS-9 drivers are not finding the drive or
There are address jumpers inside the controller cartridge. What is the correct
setting for them?
I was wondering about them specificaly because Mark said something about
making shure the old RGB-DOS was conpatible with my Disto SC-1 6 or 7 years
ago. Is there an address conflict somewhere?
