Re: ROM Cartridge Port PinOut

Don't be afraid of the main expansion port! It has all these signals and more! This is quite obvious :D An expansion port addon should feed the bus to its end so it is possible to add more extensions. As i would like to access the media I want to plug in (usb stick) a lot of space would be waisted....

ROM Cartridge Port PinOut

Hi fellows, sorry to bother you for such a stupid newby question. I cannot find a schemtic or pinout for the ROM cartrige connector on the QL, nor do I find any projects (with schematics/ board layouts) that use this port.

Re: Is Microdrive Speed sufficient?

All, my concern would be not so much speed (which, on an original QL shouldn't be a problem), but much more capacity . An emulated microdrive could (if 100% emulation) not hold much more than the typical 100 sectors worth of data of a tape. That is (at least in my opinion) not enough for modern sof...

Is Microdrive Speed sufficient?

Hi, I was discussing an Idea with some friends in the german QL forum and the Question rose wether an SD-Card Adapter (that would replace a Microdrive) giving the original speed of a microdrive (because it's a hardware replacement for this that would also be usable on a Spectrums Interface1) would b...
