Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

But then you have to copy the image back on the CF ? You can do this directly on the CF chip, instead of opening an image : use Disc > Open disc instead of File > Open image . I make Habi images only for rare ( I hope ! ) backups. Does that also take many hours to open, or is it quicker than full i...

Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

But I may well have created the .img file with Options>Headers>Extract UNCHECKED option, in which case it won't work at all and that would explain it! Actually, the Options>Header>... items are only important for extracting or inserting files. For reading a CF into an image or writing back an image...

Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

Yes, but I would not recommand these tutorials, they don't explain very well what to do and moreover WHY ! They don't distinguish between the files that already have a header (that should be inserted with Options>Headers>None ?) and those that have one (that should be inserted with Options>Headers>Q...

Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

I have a QUBIDE with DOM card (no floppy disk) and I use vDriveQL to transfer files from PC to QL or from QL to QL. On PC I use QEmulator to write the data to the mdv images, then copy those images to vDriveQL All right, but how do you do with files larger than 127Kb ? In QL www archives there are ...

Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

The aim of my partitionning strategy is to save as much as possible RAM space. On the CF card you may set up to 32 partitions. Each partition that you "mount" will load its FAT into RAM, and the size of this FAT is related to the number of its logical blocks, thus on its size and the size ...

Re: Transfer data between Windows and QL using CF Card with QL Tetroid disk interface

Last year, I put tetroid CF interface cards in both my QLs. And only now, I begin to master their setup and downloading procedures. I indeed try to use the two 8Gb CFs that came with them, but also a 1Gb and two 512Mb CFs that I had for my first Canon digital camera. Actually, I did most experiments...
