    Glad I kept it, then.

    The OP has been referencing this design, which does omit it; apparently it "works" for them without any sort of buffering, but maybe it simply hasn't been tested in...

    Welcome aboard the forum!

    So, a couple random notes:

    Congratulations on choosing the XT-CF-Lite as the design for your card; I love the heck out it because it's so simple compared to the full...

    I randomly found myself skimming through the "Baby Blue CPU Plus User's Manual" last night, and it's fascinating reading how the board is basically just a 64k memory card with a Z-80 wedged on there...

    My guess as to why your video gets nailed and taken down while these stay up is that music reposts like this aren't adding anything to the song or otherwise "using" it in a way that the companies...

    On the rare occasions I've used music in my dreary little videos I exclusively use clips from the YouTube audio library. Unless the "tag" you see is specifically an attribution notice stating that's...

    Most (all?) TRS-80 Model I double density boards piggybacked into the 1771 socket and had spots for *two* controller chips in parallel, the original 1771 which was moved to it and a 1791 or...

    Considering those are games aimed at XT/AT class machines it might make more sense to look at speed-brake software. Or you might try disabling the 486DLC’s cache, there’s a dos utility to control it...

    Even a plain 720k floppy (assuming you can lay hands on a double density board) is basically like having a hard disk on those things, yeah.

    Nope. That’s the Model II. Model I’s original drive format was 35 track single density 5.25”.

    It particularly seems like a step back if the BIOS in the board is properly recognizing the Cyrix chip and has full support for it. I know the upgrade version of the Cyrix 486DLC was sometimes a...

    I'm kind of scratching my head here; why do you want to replace the Cyrix CPU so badly if it works fine? I doubt there are many games that are speed sensitive in a way that they would fail to run on...

    This. As noted, some drives, usually newer half-height ones, will automatically spin briefly to seat an inserted disk when the latch is closed, but that's it. Tandy used "dumb" Shugart drives which...

    Despite the 286 CPU the TL/2 doesn’t have the second interrupt controller cascaded on IRQ2 so far as I know. It’s basically an XT with an upgrade card built in.

    There are some bad knockoff cards out there that make egregious mistakes. I can’t remember if it was an XTIDE or a RAM card, but not that long ago I recall someone posting about a card that worked...

    I’ve used the VIA Rhine driver on a C3 mini-ITX I have set up as a DOS box. It works, but it’s slightly annoying that it takes something like 40k of memory. (Compared to about 5k for an ISA NE2000 or...

    I always liked NewDOS/80 better than LDOS myself, although I probably can't come up with a real reason why. It just felt "leaner and meaner", or something.

    I'm sold that's unlikely to physically harm anything and I'll agree it's probably a "contrived" use case that someone would write to location X in the CGA space and then read the same cell from...

    I wonder if this is related to an issue I've seen with the same DOS on the Tandy 1000's with DOS loaded high; if I run a piece of software that uses the Tandy graphics modes (which requires changing...

    I'd noticed that my Tandy 1000 double-maps the CGA memory (when running "normal" CGA modes, not its 32k video modes), I didn't off the top of my head know if real CGA cards did that. So, yeah, if...

    Kevin Flynn?

    For the record, there are device drivers for enabling this if your particular PC's BIOS doesn't let you do it. (One of them is simply called "704k.com".)

    And of course you can't do...

    Strictly speaking I feel like you're right that most of the time it's not going to cause an issue. But as you note, *if* one of the RAMs were to somehow get out of sync with the other (let's say one...

    So... on the RAM card, are you enabling the whole 704k-768k block? (The switches indicate that it does RAM in 64k sections.) Assuming you're using a CGA card 16k of that at B8000 is going to be...

    The one flaw with the 6-pin firewire plug is it was *just* possible, depending on the socket, for truly hamfisted people to get it in backwards by pushing hard enough. That's where I really do have...

    So far as I know standard IDE CD-ROM drivers (IE, the "oakcdrom.sys" or "uide.sys" low-level part, not the higher MSCDROM extensions) bang on the raw hardware and don't care about the BIOS one way or...

    Wow, claims to only take up 6k. That's pretty impressive.

    Strictly speaking I imagine it wouldn't be impossible for someone to write a CD-ROM driver for the XTIDE card, so far as that goes, but I...
