Re: opelco and 3 1/2 inch drive

Yes im using same 3.5 inch drive that i had setup and working years ago.only thing thats changed is that the board went to mutant catapiller for overhaul. 3 inch and 3.25 inch drives still work just not the 3.5's (ive tried 3or 4 different ones and still no joy).

Re: opelco and 3 1/2 inch drive

What exactly do you mean by "does not want to work"? Is it like it does not react at all, or just spins forever, etc...? Where does that drive come from, is that an old one, relatively thick, with jumpers, etc... or a modern slim one? There are models which are hardcoded to be on specific...

Re: how to setup and use greaseweazle v4

I did not have the time to look at it, but basically what we probably need is a couple of HFE that work when converted back to DSK, and a couple that don't work, ideally with the original DSK so it's possible to check where it's going wrong. After that it's probably a matter of looking into what th...

Re: how to setup and use greaseweazle v4
