...Getting Amiga disc images back to Amiga floppy.
I've been given a rather unused A500. Unfortunately there is no software
for it, I do on the other hand, have thousands of floppies at home, but
considering I'm in NI and my floppies are in England, I'm in a spot of
Is there a relatively easy way of getting the images to Amiga floppy, just
to test it out?
I'm using a laptop, so i'm limited on the types of connections I can use.

I've been looking for something to create/read/write to ADF disc
images directly, ie. without having to mess about with floppies.
Do we have such a thing?

I already know of ADF Imager and as far as it goes it's a great tool.
Currently though, to get software to run on my actual A7000+ HDD. I
have to first write the image to a floppy and then copy the files to
the hard drive in the normal way. This is workable, if just a little
long-winded, for 1.6M (F) format HD floppy images. The problem comes
when I'm trying to transfer data from 800k (D/E) or older ADFS 3.5"
formats. This comes down to the fact that all floppies are pre-
formatted to 1.44M (DOS) and the fact that my A7000+ seems to be
having trouble "down formatting" th...Copying an adf file into RAM disc?
I try to use Red Squirrel (0.6) on Windows XP, but I can't seem to mount an
adf file. Does anyone have a pointer to a working adf file?
Or does know what RS wants to see? The file size seems right.
I was thinking of writing a program that copies the adf file in hostfs to
RAM disc so I can see what is wrong with it. I dropped it already in !Edit,
and it seems ok.
However, it has been ages since I did programming in BBC Basic, so if
anyone has a snippet that opens a file and copies it to RAM disc...

...1.6mb adfs disc images
this may well be in the wrong group, but I cant think of anywhere
better to put it... Apologies if its in the wrong place.
Does anyone know where I could download a 1.6 mb HD Floppy Disc Image
for use with an emulator like Virtual Acorn or Red Squirril?
I know I can get software to create a disc image, but since I dont have
a disc formatted in ADFS, and I have no way of getting one at the
moment, I was hoping I could download an image.

I need a simple msdos boot disc, which also creates a ram drive
accessible on the dos prompt.
Can somebody give me a hint to good resource on the net or explain the
steps to go thourgh?
You can load Microsoft's Ramdrive.sys from Config.sys or the much better Xmsdsk.exe from Autoexec.bat. Run commands from Autoexec.bat to copy file you need to the ramdisk, set the appropriate Path and Comspec variables and you can then remove the floppy and run DOS from the ramdisk. You might find a DOS7.1 (Win98) floppy image at bootdisk.com that will do this for you.
Fritz Bay...DVD-RAM stopped recognising DVD-RAM discs
I have a problem with my LG DVD-RAM drive model GSA-4040B
which I cannot resolve ... about 6 months ago I bought the drive,
installed it and everything worked fine. But last week the drive
started causing problems without any sort of warning and no obvious
reason. All the sudden it does not recognise DVD-RAMs anymore .... and
comes up with the error message "Please insert a disc into drive:"
when you click on the drive in Explorer. I have tried uninstalling the
driver and re-installing it but that did not change anything. The
drive still seems to be able to read an...Importing 3" MicroDesign3 discs into disc images for Joyce?
Anyone had any luck reading real MicroDesign3 PCW discs into images for
My PCW was a 3" one, so I can't put the disc in a physical floppy drive
on my PC and point Joyce at it. Instead, I'm using a serial link with
the LibDsk remote backend and AUXDPCW.COM on the actual PCW to create
(E)DSK files. By and large, this works quite well (if slowly).
However, I haven't had any joy transferring Creative Technology program
discs such as MicroDesign3; when run in Joyce, they just say
"Illegal/Faulty Disc". I've tried imaging working discs and the origin...FTP is not working with rom image, but working with ram image... MPC852???
I'm working on a custom board based on mpc852. I added the code
below to test the using of ftp on vxworks.
dataFd = open("ohm:myfile.txt",O_RDONLY,0);
if (dataFd == NULL) logMsg("Cannot open \n",0,0,0,0,0,0);
while ((num = read (dataFd, buf, sizeof (buf))) > 0);
Then I used visionICE to load the ram image to the target. As I
espect, everything works fine. But the problem comes when I build the
same code with rom_copy parameter. ...Boot hangs at TESTCFG.SYS or APM.SYS on Athlon64 with 1GB RAM
I know Daniela's recommendations to remove both drivers
and did that. The system runs well but I'm not sure what
depends on TESTCFG.SYS driver.
I tried several combinations of both drivers to prevent
the hang at boot without success. I suspect both are trying
to query the same system data. If I remove only TESTCFG.SYS
and keep APM it hangs at APM.SYS. Several versions of APM
have been tested, including the latest one 10.139.
It is really strange to me, that when I remove the second

I have an elevation satellite image that each pixel in this image has
elevation value. For example, if we select one pixe (e.g.
image(10,10)= 1300 m) which is the elevation value for this pixel
location. I need to convert this elevation image into spectral image
so that each pixel will have a spectral value (RGB value).
I would apprecaite any comments or suggestions regarding this.
