I have succesfully loaded (and executed) 1,2 and 3 block files from a d64. I attempted to load larger files (4, 11, 57...) many times, but it always got stuck at the "LOADING" phase. Sometimes the LOAD"$",8 or LOAD"$n",8 gets stuck the same way.
There are no FAT-directories in the card, assuming you mean (sub)directories accessable with "cd" on PC.
Here's more info on one of the cards I use:
- Code: Select all
amdxp ~ # fsck.msdos -v /dev/sda1
dosfsck 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
dosfsck 2.11, 12 Mar 2005, FAT32, LFN
Checking we can access the last sector of the filesystem
Boot sector contents:
System ID "mkdosfs"
Media byte 0xf8 (hard disk)
512 bytes per logical sector
8192 bytes per cluster
1 reserved sector
First FAT starts at byte 512 (sector 1)
2 FATs, 16 bit entries
124928 bytes per FAT (= 244 sectors)
Root directory starts at byte 250368 (sector 489)
512 root directory entries
Data area starts at byte 266752 (sector 521)
62459 data clusters (511664128 bytes)
62 sectors/track, 16 heads
0 hidden sectors
999874 sectors total
Checking for unused clusters.
/dev/sda1: 5 files, 110/62459 clusters
There are 5 (d64) files, no subdirectories and no hidden sectors. The fs is FAT16 with 512 bytes/sector.
I don't think the problem is with these cards, but if anyone sends a link to a dd dump of a tested and working card then I can try that.
The DTV was tested with a 1541-II earlier. It didn't lock up, but there were some problems loading some programs (which can be blamed on 15 year old magnetic media, I guess).
