Re: VDrive help...

Help files will load only if you have VMAP, once the VDrive is mapped as MDV1_ with VMAP 3, and the Vdrive now being MDV1_ then the help files will load.

With the boot file modified for MDV3_ its not enough, the app looks to MDV1_ for the help files.

Re: VDrive help...

Hi Max,

I was able to duplicate your problem. I have tetrodes ROM switcher and I switched in JS ROM and Minerva and Archive would start to load and stop.

I then turned off Minerva and have just JS ROM and toolkit II and the PSION apps boot Vdrive

QL Games Cartridge

I have converted the QL games cartridge on Sir Dilwyn's site to run on the VdriveQL. If you have VMAP then make sure your VdriveQL is MDV1 and you can boot directly off of your Vdrive or you can LRUN MDV1_BOOT I have modified all necessary files to run from the VdriveQL Enjoy like me!

Re: MDV1 and MDV2

Definitely RF shield as there is a piece of shielding material that sits behind that metal cover. This material is what cancels the RF, the metal shield is to keep the material in place and to keep from touching the Motorola 1377
