morelenmir Posted June 13, 2015 Share Posted June 13, 2015 I have discussed this idea in passing on several other threads, but I thought it might be worth mentioning here as an 'official' feature request. Is there any possibility of further work on the "FATFS.SYS" driver? The reason I ask is two fold. Firstly it would be extremely useful for the driver to be able to read FAT32. That way we would not need two separate partitions - a FAT16 'External' drive which makes copying files form the PC easier and also a FAT32 partition for the "SIDELoader". This I have discussed at length in another thread, but I think is worth briefly bringing it up again here. Secondly and I think more importantly; will it be possible at some point to make the driver R/W? This feature would be of absolutely colossal use to those with the "Ultimate1MB" and "SIDE2" combination. Were "FATFS.SYS" able to do this then it would be possible to use 'mkatr' to create drive images and save them directly to the FAT32 partition. In turn these *.ATR's could be mounted in the "Ultimate1MB" version of 'SIDELoader' to use as simulated floppy disks - all without leaving the Atari. In one go this feature would do away with the need for any other floppy emulator like SIO2SD, SIO2PC and the others. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
