    Default Drivers for After Market hard drive for Radio Shack hard drive

    Or should i say software to partition and format the hard drive.

    Hello all,
    I picked up an after market external hard drive for my Model 4 and 4P.
    It is made by " Software support inc in the early to mid 80's.
    I have tried the standard RS drivers plus HDDFORM5C/dct-HDDVR6C
    and HDFORM5C.

    The /dct programs freeze after inputting all the drive info.
    The Hard drive in mine is a Seagate ST506 5 Mb but the HD controller if likely different.

    I have checked with TRS-Ian and he thinks VCF is my best chance.
    Does anyone have any drivers that may work ?
    If so can you email them to me ?

    Thanks
    Woody

    Post a picture of the controller board? I wonder if the WD drivers from Breeze would work?

    Instapatch for Konan DJ210 Hard Drive (1986)(Software Support Inc)[DSK].zip.

    This could help narrow down if that looks like your drive, this disk is for NEWDOS only though. Its available on the archives out there.

    Some files for your MODEL 1 that you were after sometime ago.

    MODEL1 LDOS


    Hi Woody I think that these are the Modified (Fixed Files )
    that you were after for the Model 1 ??

    Drop them in the Root of the Sd Card and import them to the Hard drive.

    These were given to me from Gazza a VCF Member.

    Yeah I think Ray might have them, tho those are for Model 1. I wonder if it was just a port change. Might be easier to compare the original RSFORM1/HARD1 to the modified to find the changes.

    Ray,
    Thank you for your help.
    I have 2 EI's one for each of my model 1's
    But both are not working right now.
    Do you think it would work with the HD
    Connected to my M4 in M3 mode installing the drivers
    Under Ldos 5.31 ?

    Thanks
