Masoboshi MVD-819 driver disk?
« on: November 18, 2022, 01:49:21 PM »
Anyone know where to get OS2.0 or better driver for that card?

Here is German OS1.3 driver

http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/mvd819

BBOAH says this : Two versions of the software exists, one is for use with Amiga OS1.2 and 1.3 and the other is for OS 2.0 and higher

Seems that this software is lost.

Have made thread about it to multiple forums and got zero answers.

Archive org doesn't have it. Anyone know is this masoboshi.de correct www-site for card manufacturer?

VHI Studio supports this card, but not ancient mvd.library from OS1.3 version of software.

:(

Have you tried on a1k or another German forum? I suspect most of these cards were sold in Germany.

Does the VHI driver require the original 2.0 library?

To be honest, I can't be sure. With SnoopDos I noticed VHI Studio search mvd.library when trying to config card. With available mvd.library I get guru. So I suppose, it is too old as it from OS1.3 version of floppy.

Its a long shot but maybe try and contact the author of VHI studio,maybe he had the driver since he wrote support into VHI and possibly tested it?

I was reading the docs for VHI Studio and it says v34 of the MVD library is required and that they can't provide it.

Besides, Felix Schwartz ended all Amiga stuff in 2007. I get the impression some members of the community were quite rude to him and he was (understandably) not happy about it, so I don't know how receptive he'd be.

I found out that guy name Roland Seibt was working Masoboshi and I asked from him:

yes, that was really me, working for Masoboshi 30 years ago. And I´m sorry, but I don´t have the old source codes, nor the latest install disks. I checked some old floppy-discs a year ago, as someone asked me for a version of the ROM from the SCSI-card, but the disks lost their data, and my only backup was gone, too.

When Commodore went down, Masoboshi closed instantly, and I had to give my development-amigas and other equipment back.

Not luck so far.

Amiga hardware database has MVD.library v33.45

Bummer. Someone's got to have it - probably buried in a box with hundreds of other disks. I hope you find it!

Hope so, though I think it must be somewhere in the net. There were some hardware driver sites, which are now removed and maybe archive.org might be solution for that, but I can't remember their names. What was that site which was asked to remove GVP drivers?

Guy name Mario Misic has hosted BBOAH version http://amigahardware.mariomisic.de/index_e.html which might have had it in a download section (Treiber und Installdisks) . File name was vhimvd12.lzx , but waybackmachine's 2005 version doesn't have that file saved and year 2006 version it it doesn't have a download section anymore, just link to different sites for files which doesn't have this file like http://www.l8r.net/install/
