What PC utility are you using? the Habi Image Editor....

I have used that to import data onto a CF Disk for use in the Tetroid Trump Card. All works okay for me.

With regards to Alain's Qubide drivers they work perfectly with the Tetroid hardware. But I have refer to the manual to remind myself of the WIN_ commands.


Yes it was the Habi Image Editor - but it was apparent that there is no checking - I couldn't find the manual and it was not exactly the most obvious bit of software to use. I used one of the options and it appears destroyed the QL formatted CF card. Oh well.

Hi Rich,

Did you look at the tutorial web pages.

The only problem I had was the QDOS header issue. So I only transfer ZIP files.

I connect the CF Card via USB CF Card Reader, using Windows 10, I have used the Image Editor on Windows 7, XP, all seems to work OK for me.

OK I admit I didn't read the manual :o

It does apparently extract files complete with the QDOS header, so maybe you need to re-read the manual too if you can't get it to work (someone on Facebook recently managed to do it)

OK that worked - although there was a typo in the above - it needed to read:

Code: Select all

Win_format 1
Win_disk initialize,1
Win_disk create, 1,1,sizeinmega
Win_drive 1,1,1
Format win1_name


Just a small comment - I had 2 8GB cards, but win_disk create,1,1,8 both failed with disk full.
I had to use win_disk create,1,1,7

:(

Hi Rich,
Sorry for the typo in the command win_disk you. You are right.

About size, some makers compute mega and giga as 1000 and others as 1024. Win_disk expect size in megabytes as 1=1024*1024 bytes.
To know real size of cf card, use
Win_disk detail,1
This will show you geometry as CHS and you can calculate the right size from this as :
(CxHxSx512)/1024/1024=size in mega

Regards,
