Re: Cumulus Issues

@Chema: You can try to short the two jumpers (one on the CumuluBus and one on the Cumulus) and then only use the short connection on the ide-cable. If you short the jumpers then connect the ide-cable so: Black side into CumuluBus and grey side into Cumulus.

Re: Cumulus Issues

About moving the cumulus...the IDE cable on mine plugs in loosely at the cumulus end but fits in very firmly at the bus end. Do you really connect it complett? The connetion between the Cumulus and the IDE-cable is strong and you need a little force to connect or disconnect it. Maybe you can check ...

Re: Cumulus Preorder Thread

Before doing anything wrong, I'm searching how to plug The only thing that you can plug wrong is the Cumulubus. The chips on this little board are on the upper side. The IDE-Cable goes with the blue plug to the Cumulus and with the black one in the CumuluBus. It only fits in the right position. and...

Re: Cumulus Firware Compilation

Re: Cumulus Issues

1337 and Space:1999 runs on my Oric1 and Atmos with the Cumulus. My Orics have all the original ROMs and no hardware modification. The Cumulus need about 300mA so you need a power supply with 1A or more. I you a cheap one at 9V with 1A. Make sure that you are not use one with 12V because the power r...

Re: Cumulus Firware Compilation

Does cumulus only read .dsk images and run it or can we save files into disk images and alter them via Oric?
sure you can save files in a dsk image. For the Oric the Cumulus is a normal microdrive.

Re: Cumulus Firware Compilation

Is this 1k area overwritten when we flash with a new version of the CUMULUS.BIN or is it in a separate area? this is a separate area. The firmware is in the 64KB Program memory. Is there sample code somewhere to show how to read/write to this 1KB (apparently it's bytes, not bits :D)? http://www.mcu...

Re: Cumulus Firware Compilation

Something I'm wondering about is if it's possible to store data in memory when Cumulus is not powered, perhaps by reserving a bank of flash or something like that?
the pic has 1kb EEPROM that you can use to save data.
