    Compaticard IV & Uniform-PC

    I have an oddball Compaticard IV with no DIP switches and no BIOS, date stamped 1989. None of the Compaticard drivers on the Internet seem to work with it. I think it might have been designed to...

    Thanks to you both! The images Mike sent me and the images on retroarchive.org were the same and both worked with my co-power board. Here is the link to the retroarchive images in case anyone else...

    Thanks Geneb. Those might be the right disks and I would not have found them otherwise. Mloewen also sent me some ImageDisks of co-power software so I'll try them all out this week.

    Larry, did you mean to say the Adaptec 1522A SCSI card instead of the 1542? I found this excellent analysis of disk imaging techniques online where the author compares TESTFDC on a variety of...

    Probably the biggest complaint of the Z-100 was the fan noise. The noise is so loud that when I would power up my Z-100 for some retro fun, I was unable to hear much of anything outside of the room....
