    Meh, I've got a bunch of DDS drives, all external. I grabbed an SDT-5000 to try, as it's a plain 50-pin interface. Win98SE says I need a driver for it. XP sees it without comment, but XP backup...

    If you'd like, I can dig my SDT9000 out from the pile and give it a go with Win98SE (I don't have any systems currently loaded with the first edition of Win98--too many issues) and an Adaptec 2940. ...

    Bottom line: almost all consumer electronics/electrics are made in the Far East; with perhaps the exception of Japan and Korea, it's all very inconsistent in quality and almost always involves...

    The SDT9000 should be recognized as a generic SCSI tape drive by Win98.

    It should--I've got an SDT9000 and I don't recall any problems under Win98SE (or Win2k).

    Instead of complaining about the poor quality of a consumer item, why not just spring for a commercial solar light with a LiPo battery and high-efficiency solar panel? They're making headway in...

    There are a few Teac FD-55Bxxx drives on eBay. It depends on how much you'd like to pay.

    The really insane $$$ prices for the FD-505 combo drives has my head spinning. I still have most of a...

    Read the line below the "WD1772PH". If it reads "02 02", you stand a good chance of getting the chip to work at 16MHz, though it will probably run hot. (early 80s CMOS wasn't that fast). Not all...

    When handling large data structures, I find that it's convenient to reduce offsets to <32K; you avoid boundary issues with little additional overhead.

    OP: If you want to fill memory fast,...

    Even if you install U6 to provide a doubled-clock, your problem is the WD1770, which isn't rated for the doubled data rate of 8" drives. Your best bet is the WD1770PH02 02; otherwise it's...

    I just got through writing a long and detailed response to a requestor via the PM facility. I wanted to add a bit of data, so I clicked on the web search box on my browser. To my horror, I...

    Component markings are typically solvent-based, so not subject to water. This looks more like it was hit by oil or alcohol.

    I suspect that there's a lot you don't know about this PSU's history. ...

    I've got one with the LiFePO₄ battery. Claims to be aluminum-cased. Regular steel pipe clamp-on fitting. Intended for commercial use, but oddly, was only about sixty US clams. Could have been a...

    It depends on what you need to do. Many EDA (if not most) tools require a 64 bit platform. No way you're going to get that running on an 8088 or 80486 or even a P4.

    No, you have to modify the segment register. In you case, set ES to 0400h and BX to 0.

    It gets a little more involved when you want to store 65,535 bytes on a boundary that doesn't start on a...

    If the housing of the lamp is cast ('pot metal"), the white powder is likely zinc oxide, leached from the zinc in the metal. Non-toxic--people put the stuff on the face as a UV protectant.

    Could be that the IR LED puts out a tight beam that isn't visible from the side, or the LED frequency doesn't register on your digicam.
