desiv Posted October 8, 2022 Share Posted October 8, 2022 (edited) 🙂 Seems like there is always something. I finally saw a CP/M card online for a price I was willing to gamble with. OK, now I need to make a CP/M boot disk... Been a while since I used my //e to write disks, but the PC is still there nearby. Serial cable is ready... Hook it all up, launch ADTPro (on the PC and Windows) and... Can't read the directory. Timeout... <sigh> Try a bunch of things (the //e isn't somewhere I can easily really work with it unfortunately) and get nowhere. Finally fall back to audio... Try that, and doesn't work... To be fair, not sure I ever tried that in ADTPro... Hmm Go to the Apple Disk Server (there is a CP/M image there, tho not sure if it is the right one...).. Try that with audio, it starts to work, gets to the format step, and fails... Hmmm... That's a (basically) new floppy I was trying... Try another one, same thing... Hmmm. Go to ADTPro to try to preformat the disk.. error... Try again with other disks, error.. Both drives, won't format... CopyIIPlus says the disks are right protected, but not sure how accurate that error is... So, I'll have to move a lot of things around so I can open things up and really work on this guy to see where my error(s) is (are)... The Duodisk is still booting floppies fine. Just can't format anymore (I haven't tried saving something yet). And I don't think that is my ADTPro issue, as I couldn't pull a directory from ADTPro, which doesn't involve writing... So probably two different issues? Oh well, retro... Always something... Last thing I think I did (awhile ago) was add a Booti card, so I might try removing him just to make sure that isn't conflicting in some weird way.
