Re: Microdisc controller + Amplibus, do you want another bat

I have recently bought a Flopper which will work perfectly.. http://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/Flopper,-budget-USB-floppy-emulator-10973 You need the controller AND the Amplibus. The Oric bus signals are too weak and noisy. You will also need a floppy disk drive (3.5, 3 or 5.25). Alternativel...

Thanks!

There are a couple of interested parties on the Oric Facebook group. Can you give me the combined cost of the Controller and Amplibus please and I will forward the info on?

Re: EEPROM (or flash) replacement for Oric-1 ROM?

Thanks Godzil - I'll go ahead and buy the TL866CS. Is it easier to work with EPROMs or EEPROMs, in terms of erasing & programming? Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I am trying to find out if this would this be suitable for programming a 1.1 EEPROM for my Oric1? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/High-Sp...

Re: Interested people in controller Microdisc or AmpliBus.

Hi. Is it still possible to buy a disk controller for use with my HxC flashed Gotek and Oric-1?

Is it just a disk controller I need, or is there other hardware requirements?

Thanks

Re: .dsk files for Oric 1

Thanks Chema, much appreciated. I'll take a look at these links tomorrow. Just carried out a simple mod to divert audio through my external speakers rather than having to put up with being deafened by the overly loud internal beast!

.dsk files for Oric 1

Hi there

I would like to use my HxC flashed Gotek with my newly acquired Oric 1 and have been struggling to find any software in .dsk format. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

I have looked on the Oric.org site but can only find .tap files.

Thanks in advance..
