+OLD CS1 Posted March 7, 2011 Share Posted March 7, 2011 (edited) I have finally got my hands on an IDE card and have discovered for myself yet another, easy and fast way to transfer to a TI (provided you have the IDE card...) Fred Kahl has written a program called FATCOPY that enables the TI to read and copy PC formatted CF cards. My current project is Transferring about 500 disks of music files onto a scuzzy drive on my TI. With the IDE card and FATCOPY I can simply plug the CF card into my PC and load it with disk images then unplug it and move it to the IDE card in the TI. At this point COPYFAT takes over and in TI99-PC fashion writes a selected disk to a RAM disk. I can do 9 at a time until I have to switch to DM2K, copy the RAM disk contents to the scuzzy directory. Then it's back to COPYFAT for another 9 disks. It's really the same process as using TI99-PC only about 10 times faster as the floppy disk copy time is removed. Kind of roundabout and requires some hardware but yet another way. I could do this with my current collection of Zip drives (Amiga SCSI, PC USB, TI SCSI.) Where can one find this excellent-sounding program?? EDIT: My TI does not have IDE, it has SCSI. Edited March 7, 2011 by OLD CS1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
