Thread: Olivetti M24 and IMD -> No interrupt from FDC

  1. #31

    Default

    1ST1,
    YES, I converted all the .IMD files you sent me to .RAW (Sector Dump) and with a bit of modification I can get a directory
    listing of the files. That is the stuff I emailed you. I had to purge the Track 0 (FM 128 Sector track and replace it with a
    copy of Track 1. Then cpmtools could access the files (or at least get a directory).

    I used DOSBox to create the .RAW files (Sector Dump).

    [DOSBOX Terminal]C:\IMDA ETV300.IMD > ETV300.TXT
    [DOSBOX Terminal]C:\IMDU ETV300.IMD ETV300.RAW /B /E /D >> ETV300.TXT

    Then switch to Linux and used cpmtools:
    cd /ETV300/ETV300
    $cpmls -f oli1 -D ETV300.RAW

    For some reason I can't access the file ETV300-4.IMD. It appears to have the
    sectors scrambled somehow that cpmtools doesn't like. If I do a difference
    with vbindiff the bytes don't match the previous files. I'm still trying to
    get a handle on what is wrong.

    OH, and I've been searching for MWP but don't know what the real name is. I used Wordstar. What Word Processor is it?
    I'd like to access the files in Chuck's floppy. I can extract the MWP.COM file, but it doesn't run in my emulator.

    Thanks.

    MWP is the wordprocessor. You need

    MWP .COM 15K 114
    MWPDSK .OVL 8K 63
    MWPED2 .OVL 7K 50
    MWPEDI .COM 32K 255
    MWPHYP1 .OVL 7K 50
    MWPHYP2 .OVL 7K 50
    MWPPRT .OVL 24K 191

    But MWP is strange, I think it only can work on ETV 300 as it does something with the typewriter. Example:
    I have german and italian mwp, yours on the images also should be italian. When I start german MWP everything is Ok, my ET 121 typewriter is german layout and has german daisywheel (country code 458 ). Now one could expect, that running italian mwp (country code 001) on ETV 300 with german typewriter, everything should be fine as well, except that all display messages are in italian language. But it's not, the typewriter changes to italian keyboard layout and when printing german mwp documnet, which appears normal on monitor, but the typewriter prints wired things when printing the document. So it looks like mwp communicate very intensive with the typewriter, changes nationality, etc.

    mwp is also strange in other way. I tryed to make an mwp document with some ASCII art. So I searched one from internet, and tryed to copy/paste in a created mwp document on the ETV with 5000 characters and using Notepad++ on PC I pasted the ascii art into the MPW document by just replacing as many characters as the length of the ascii art (mwp is ACII plus some header and end of file, only CR at line end). So even as the resulted new file has same length in bytes as the original created mwp file, ETV 300 hangs up when loading the new file.

    Currently I am in other troubke with ETV 300. This is now outsourced to http://www.vcfed.org/forum/showthrea...166#post535166

    1ST1,
    Dwight has a good posting on the M20 here on VCF.
    http://www.z80ne.com/m20/index.php?a...ereadwrite.inc
    http://www.z80ne.com/m20/index.php?a...magehandle.inc

    The information under this heading is interesting: "Disk images under Linux: dd and sdd"

    sdd can be downloaded from SourceForge:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/sch...ar.gz/download

    It would be worth a try to see if this software would also work for you.

    Do you have access to a Linux Box? You could boot a Linux LiveCD, install FDUTILS, and write the Image to Floppy.

    Hello, currently I have not a Linux machine. Can you please extract these files from all IMD images you have and transfer them to me?

    I will now outsource the ETV 300 floppy / floppy controller mixture issue to a different thread. See http://www.vcfed.org/forum/showthrea...166#post535166
