Changing RAM to an Atmos. In spanish only, sorry.

Re: Searching for 3" disk drive.

Hey, this is better! :D But the ICs HA16640NT and CX10040 are missing, them both hard to get. What a pity! :cry:

I really appreciate you taking the time, iss. Thanks a lot!

As you said then, 40 tracks per side x 2 sides (2 heads), 80 tracks in total.

Re: Copy programs.

Hi Symoon!

Mmm, Nibble is a disc monitor only, and i think is very good indeed. BDDISK is good to copy from tape to disc, but is no good to copy from disc to disc.

For orientation, some images of Copy ][ Plus and Locksmith for Apple II.
