Re: Microdrive boards

Long time since I've posted on here, but I would be interested in 1 or 2.... Just recently blown the dust off my QL to have another go with it!

Cheers,

Simon

512k ExpanderRAM with through connector

Fully working, I'm only selling it as I have no need for it, as I have a SuperQboard with disk and printer interface now! I've been meaning to put this on auction for a while, but have not just gotten around to it. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331813739545?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1...

Re: Microdrive Cartridges

I can vouch for these, I bought a couple of sets, and they have been by far the most reliable microdrive cartridges I've got, thus far!

Re: QL-SD question

Okay, I'm an idiot! I was doing the microdrive testing at the same time as I was creating a duplicate of Lost Empire of Zkul, and I think I must have used my new duplicate, which of course will have some sort of copy protection on it. I tried again this morning with a different cartridge, and everyt...

Re: Microdrives

Sorry, I meant to say, this was using refurbished microdrive cartridges... I will open up the QL soon and take a look... Thanks for the responses!

QL-SD question

I've had a search on the forums, and a quick look through the manual, but no joy, so I have to start another thread... Sorry! I've connected my QLSD so that I have not had to remove a microdrive, and have threaded the ribbon cable out through the gap in the expansion slot so that the SD card and ass...

Microdrives

Hello All, I've been very quiet of late (distracted by a ZX81 arriving over the winter), but have been doing some tinkering with my QL through the past few months. I've been mainly playing with Microdrives (before I start seriously using my QL-SD), and have a query... MDV1 is noisy in operation. It ...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Thanks :D They're beautiful but I've made little or no use of them so far... hmmm. Sounds like me, it's a pain when real life gets in the way... I recall as a lad I had endless time to 'waste' on my Spectrum games and programming. I also know that much of Christmas will spent watching my 4 yr old d...

Re: The winter has returned, as has the QL

My plan is much more modest, and has two main elements 1: Work out step by step how to transfer QL software from my Mac (with the full version of QEmulator) to my QL-SD 2: Do some programming with SuperBASIC Way below what you guys are going to achieve, but if I can achieve these by next Spring, I w...

Re: Sandy Electronics...

Glad to hear it, you sound relieved to be done with it.

I would definitely be keen to get more microdrive pads: tried the first batch you sent me, and they work a treat!

Hope you are back up and running soon...
