The idea was to use it to experiment with, in an attempt to get your unknown drive working. The Basic program just let you know what the ISA card/drive identity is set to.Don't understand well what I have to do with this program: it can help me to format the drive or you have to patch and send me a new rom for let the drive be compatibile with the Winny?
Then you need find out what your drive parameters are sectors/heads/cylinders etc.
The drive parameter table in version 2.07 can then be patched liked this:
Code: Select all
100 addr=ALCHP(40) : LBYTES flp1_mhd_bin,addr : CALL addr
110 id=PEEK_W(addr+38) : RECHP addr
140 INPUT 'interleave ='!d
160 INPUT 'sectors per logical block ='!d
180 INPUT 'sectors per cylinder ='!d
200 INPUT 'heads ='!d
220 INPUT 'cylinders ='!d
240 INPUT 'maximum cylinders ='!d
260 INPUT 'cylinder for write precomp ='!d
280 INPUT 'cylinder for reduced write current ='!d
All sent to a friend for check it
It will read the post this night, hope It can make it works.
Thanks a lot!
