Re: transfer from pc to ql is it possible

Thanks - i will look out for one of those. I would like to try and get the Gotek to work as i have been able to get it to work on my Atari ST, and the BBC Micro with little pain, but the QL is proving to be a little more difficult. I have downloaded the QEmulator but it wont let me do much unless i ...

Re: Insane Original Games etc prices

I have to say I did bid on a couple and won one of the items. Just getting back into using a QL after selling my original boxed one several years back, for peanuts I might add. Thought I'd try and get another and did, but paid almost twice as much for an unboxed one with 'issues' and plastic bits mi...

Re: Micro drive continuously spinning

Many thanks for the response and the detail there in. A little over my head at the moment but very interesting read.

So to fix the duff MDrive, will it be a case of replacing its ULA?

I did see the work being done on the rom variant and that looks interesting.

Thanks

Re: Micro drive continuously spinning

Thanks for the information. I will go with an SD solution at some point as I have got such media working on the BBC Micro and the Atari (800 & ST). I have had a chance to tinker with the QL this afternoon and have got some where. After cleaning all I could see, dusting, cleaning heads, reseating...

Re: Micro drive continuously spinning

Hi, That's good advice. I'm not so great with soldering and would avoid it if I can. I will try out the dismantle, reseating etc and see if that helps. I would like to stop the motors from spinning though so if I could find the cable that prevents this it would be great. I have a trump card on its w...

Re: Micro drive continuously spinning

Morning. With the case apart I can see the rollers are where they are meant to be. I'm going to take the drives out and have a look around, there isn't much to look at but will remove dust and clean heads etc and see if I can dig out the volt meter to start troubleshooting. I have located some drive...
