Thankx, I'll experiment when I get home.

What's a DOS Wedge?

Also where did you get this info, are their firmware updates, etc? I looked things up on the Wiki's but wasn't sure which one had the correct info for my hardware because the WIKI's make it sound like they stopped building my hardware 2 years ago and yet here I have one in my hands.

EDIT: Just saw your link. So would Jiffy Dos make navigating this easier? I was hoping for a menu driven system no unlike I use with my SDrive NUXX for the Atari 8-bit.

Thankx you!!! Thus  I've loaded a PRG , but still trying to work out loading disk images.

What are the three buttons on the side of the device for?

How do I use multi sided disks?

Oh, and it works perfectly with MSSIAH!!! :)

the buttons are for disk change. you can create a text file that lists multiple disks (eg: pool of radiance disk 1...2.3..4.5..6 etc) its a swap list. the buttons change forward/back on disks etc so you can do multidisk games.

read that text file in the link I gave earlier, it explains it (send the text file as "XS:filename.txt" etc.

Instead of typing in long string commands, you can use the shortcut commands in the DOS wedge.  For some of the commands, look at

For the current state of the uIEC and SD2IEC, look at

The uIEC/SD and the uIEC/CF are still available from Jim Brain, and the SD2IEC is still available from NKCElectronics.com

Yes, with its built-in DOS wedge, JiffyDOS would make it easier to use.

Nice nice!

Yes I figured they were still making it considering mine just arrived in the mail.

I was a bit scared at first as some posts I read in some other forums made it sound like it was not going to work with MSSIAH, but low and behold it did without an issue. It's also cool that MSSIAH just treats my SD card like a hard drive.

Now to figure out how to make that list file as well as how to load floppy images.

I think I shall order Jiffy DOS after all as I've heard that it really speeds up loading times as well.

OH, BTW, is there a GUI I could use in place of GEOS? And where do I download DOSWedge?

Thankx for all the help!

I cannot think of another GUI that can recognize the SD card drive.  Perhaps the GUI in the Final Cartridge 3.  To make it easier to use the SD card drive, you can use Payton Byrd's CBM-Command at  http://cbmcommand.codeplex.com/   or CBM FileBrowser at http://www.vic20.it/cbmfilebrowser/

The DOS wedge is part of JiffyDOS.
