Transferring files between disk images and tapes..

Post by peacer » Mon Jul 29, 2013 8:32 pm

I am using Oriculator and have a problem..

I need to transfer some files between disk images

To do this, I try to save to .tap images instead of disk.

There's no problem in loading .tap images as I choose insert tape image to load.

When I type CSAVE and save a program and if emulator booted in disk enviroment, I can't save that image as tape file. When I give the CSAVE command, it says Saving for a long time but no .tap file created anywhere when saving finished.

I tried "save tape output" option, but can't manage to do it too.

I tried to do this after inserting previously present tap image but still nothing happens.

I am sure there is a simple way to transfer files between disks and tapes but can't find it. Can you help me?

Stupid question, but why not directly having 2 drives and copying from one drive to another? Are you using disks from different operating systems?

About the CSAVE bug, what operating system do you use? If using Sedoric 1 or 2, beware that they are known as having a bug with CSAVE. Use Sedoric 3, or check there (scroll down a bit):

:) I didn't think of using 2 drives.Thanks. That should work I think.

About CSAVE, I think it is sedoric 3. How can I learn which system is loaded in disk?

Is that bug is about real sedoric system?

Still, when I type CSAVE"Filename" it says Saving .. Filename .B , and Ready. But there is no new file in taps directory. I think there's a problem with emulator settings..

which version of oricutron are you using? Also, which system are you emulating? Are you specifying a filename when you CSAVE?

- Oricutron 0.9
- Atmos Emulation under Windows 8 64 bit.
- I do specify filename.

ok that should work. I'll try it when I get a chance and see if I can recreate the problem.

I must be completely retard: I'm still not able to CSAVE anything from Oricutron, at least not in a .TAP file.
Apparently I can get it to save to the ORT format, but I need a TAP not a ORT file.

I'm trying something very basic:
- Boot on VIP3.DSK
- LOAD"MENU.COM",N
- CSAVE"MENU.TAP" <- nothing happens

Help is welcome :)

EDIT: I failed with Oricutron, so I used Euphoric instead:
LOAD"MENU.COM",N
CSAVE"MENU.TAP"
LOAD"DISK.COM",V
-> 050A 0800 41 050A
LOAD"DISK.COM",N
CSAVE"DISK.TAP",A#050A,E#0800
I now have my two binary files.

I do have the same problem still..

Instead, Oric Explorer does it :)

Right click on any file inside dsk and choose "save as tap file"

hopefully I'll have some time to look I to this soon..

Edit: Actually, this could be related to the issue seen by Hialmar. With the disk drive attached, he said that turbotape no longer works. The CSAVE patch uses the same mechanism as turbo tape, so it seems that when microdisc is enabled, the ROM patches don't work.

Now, as long as the microdisc rom is re-enabling the atmos rom for the tape routines, the patches should work.

I don't have time to look into it right now, but it would make sense.

DBug: Can you test if the CSAVE tap patch works when you are emulating an atmos without disk drive?
