My parts came in the mail and I have installed the Hard Membrane into my keyboards. This is a PCB.
All my keys seem to work. Tilde is a key I am not for sure about.
I need a key testing program or something similar.

I need another 3.X Kick Start. I broke two of the pins off during installation.
A pin straightener is on my list.

One problem my be is that I have Easy-ADF installed. When I run it, it asks for CF0: to be inserted.
As for block sizes, etc. I am not for sure right now about that.

Oh my. Broken a few pins in my time. Takes a little rractice to get used to sorting them out properly.

I've heard of Easy-ADF but never used it. Very likely it defaults to 512 byte sector size.

Here's what CF0 looks like (without the comments);-


Quote
FileSystem    = l:fat95
Device        = compactflash.device
Unit        = 0
Flags        = 0
LowCyl        = 0
HighCyl        = 0
Surfaces    = 1
BlocksPerTrack    = 1
BlockSize    = 512
Buffers        = 20
BufMemType    = 1
BootPri        = 0
Stacksize    = 4096
Priority    = 5
GlobVec        = -1
DosType        = 0x46415401

I've Bolded the line that selects sector size - 512 bytes is default (good up to 2GB partition size).

2GB up to 16GB you have to change that up to 4096 bytes, 16-32GB it has to be 8192 bytes.

A text editor program like EDIT or Memacs should let you edit the CF0 file. Esc then x to save changes if I recall correctly.

EDIT Devs:Dosdrivers/CF0      <-typed into a shell if you don't have Memacs on your syste should give you a text file editor at least.

There's also a switch you can try setting on the icon to try to get non-compliant cards to work (in the readme of compactflash.device are the details, you can check them at aminet).

Ed, not EDIT.

And all the options in the file can also be set as tooltypes on the .info, mount is flexible about where it reads the parameters from. But, iirc, the parameters in the file has precedence over tooltypes.

Thanks, wasn't sure what you got with 2.1.

You get both (as always), but Edit is a command-driven, line-oriented editor (cryptic and hard to use for most users, but quite powerful), while Ed is a GUI editor (although primitive compared to other GUI editors, but with the benefit of being usable without Workbench).

Best regards,

Niels

I was able to see my SDXC 64 bit card with a 4GB FAT32 partition on my 32 bit Sparky Linux Laptop.
It was with the PCMCIA adapter.
The SDHC card with a 2 GB fat partition would not show with the combo. It would show in a SD Card slot.

Still working on it.  8)

Strange, for the first time ever, I had an Amiga to reboot without notice.

I regret I have no info on sector / cluster size for FAT partitions done in Linux.

Never needed to, Linux can mount Amiga hard drive partitions natively.

Only up to 4gb though, old school fast file system.

That would be a way to get latest compactflash.driver on your Amiga. The downside is unplugging the thing from inside the Amiga. Not too handy for a long term solution.

Thankfully, my Floppy Disk Drive still works.
I guess I could be homing in on it.

edit:
I do have an Amiga Pi Drive.
But, I have no external cables.

What do you mean by Amiga Pi Drive?

A Raspberry Pi that acts like a Floppy Drive for the Amiga.

I have my Kick-start 3.X installed and now it runs out of memory during install.
The question is, how do I manually install OS 3.1 over OS 2.1?
A chip ram up grade would be best.

edit:
I went ahead and bought a Chip Ram expansion.

I manually installed OS3.1 onto the Hard Drive.
It was messy.

The PCMCIA card shows up as ndos.
I formatted it and copied files to it.
I was able to copy those to my laptop.
When I re-inserted the card it came back up as ndos.

I thank everyone for the help over the months.
I need to find some one in Texas who can buy all of this stuff.
