Hi Gary here , I'm new , I have a Merlin Tonto which I believe has a QL chip in it .
I would like to use the Tonto and need some software for it to try .
I have also read that the QL can write microdrives to work in the Tonto .
Are there any people on here can help please , thanks .

A very warm welcome to the forum! :) I've never used a Tonto, but I'd love one :D Is there any software on Dilwyn's site?

Hi Gary and welcome.


I believe this might be useful - it's a utility to read/transfer Tonto cartridges to/from the QL. The blurb says:

OPD Interchange - Dave Walker's software allowing the QL to read ICL OPD or Merlin Tonto cartridges. Provides a new MDV driver for the QL which reads OPD cartridges, and an OPDCOPY program for file transfer, including transparent conversion of Xchange files between the two computers. Further details available from Dave Walker's site at http://homepage.ntlworld.com/itimpi/djwdown.htm#OPD. There are 4 files to download in all.

The link is http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/filetran/index.html and when there, scroll down to "OPD Interchange".


HTH

Cheers,
Norm.

Thanks to you both a friend is busy restoring a QL so maybe he can use this to write some programs for my Tonto .
It is a very unusual device and looks of its time , it has either a large colour monitor which is basically a BBC monitor or a dinky little Black and White one .
I'll look on that page , cheers .
