It is a 4TB external drive from Seagate to use with a X-BOX One S.
The interface to connect it is Micro USB 3 from the top (here on the right).

The PCB under it is not connected to anything... But you can see this device with the cable going to the X-BOX S in the background.
So, it is a fake... But, sure it is possible to connect a TB mass storage to a CPC as well as GB RAM... But, it is just useless.

Not so much time to waste with those sort a video making peoples thinking something that is not... :-\
The last video don't cat anything, because it is just the M4 board embedded into the disk case and the Micro SD out from the micro-USB3 hole.

That's what I thought, too. All we see is a nice case... might as well connect my NAS to the CPC and claim such capabilities :D

He wrote that he put the M4 in the case. That's all. And it looks good.

 hi guys!


Just finished setting up my M4 board and it's really great!


I have couple of questions that a quick search got me no answers..


Maybe you can help.


1) How do I play multidisk games
2) If I upload Parados rom in slot 5 and enable it with |m4romoff how I re-enable the M4 rom without deleting Parados rom?
3) Did I understand correctly that M4 can also act as memory expansion? If so how exactly?

On a happier note however the Benediction shell rom will live in slot 1, it is amazing :)

With my Patched Cart in the C4CPC I can use c4cpc as a command to open the c4cpc menu and select a cart game so it's pretty damn fine anyway.
Hi is there any guide or instructions out there on how to use a C4CPC with M4 at the same time? When I try to launch some things on the C4CPC when my M4 is plugged in I get errors like "incompatible memory card" or "m4 . file not found" etc.
Also where did you get the patch so you can run c4cpc as a command?
Thanks for any help :)

1) How do I play multidisk games
You can change .DSK using the web interface (CD ON CPC) OR you can extract all .DSK's to the same directory and launch the game from there.
Ie.
|mkdir,"Turrican"
|dskx,"turrican1.dsk","Turrican"
|dskx,"turrican2.dsk","Turrican"
|cd,"Turrican"
run"turrican"

2) If I upload Parados rom in slot 5 and enable it with |m4romoff how I re-enable the M4 rom without deleting Parados rom?
If you use |M4ROMOFF, you simply powercycle the CPC (or use M4 reset) to bring back M4 rom. Any uploaded roms will not be deleted/changed.

3) Did I understand correctly that M4 can also act as memory expansion? If so how exactly?
No, it does not act as a memory expansion.

Thank you Duke, just a small note..


If I power cycle the CPC or reset M4, the Parados rom is still loaded! Maybe because it is in Slot 4 so it comes first before Slot 6 where M4 rom is uploaded? Also I noticed that if I copy Parados v1.s+ ROM to Slot 4 (I use slot 5 for IME4FE) there is no need for IME4ROMOFF.. A reset loads Parados on next boot..


If I use Slot 8 for Parados it crashes..


Also I can hear some parasitic noise from the speaker when I start the CPC?


Last question for a while! I guess with "Hack" mode I can savegame? i.e. start another day from where I left off?

Parados must be set to a ROM-Number 7 or lower.
(Maybe a patch at #DC43 to "NOP" could be solved that problem for V1.2)

Please explain how you got those errors messages (which software)?

|M4ROMOFF, is only intended to turn off M4 rom, not any other roms. Power Cycle will bring back M4 rom and any other ROM, so that is expected behaviour.

There is some interference from the WiFi. It will disappear if you use an external power supply connected to the M4 board (and change the jumper setting).

Yes, that's the main purpose (right now) of the hack menu, to be able to save and resume a game at any time. It's still beta though so it's not perfect yet.

Switch the WiFi off, or extend the cable length to the CPC (which shouldn't be too long, and I haven't tested how long still works reliable).

Please not ,h. If needed stay compatible to other DOS. In CPC world ist "System" and not "hidden". Please use "s" if needed. Personally I don't mind "loosing" file attributes.  :)

I wonder if there is a Double Dragon version for M4 (not the tape one)
I have the original disk but soon I'll leave for work away from home and I'll take my 464 Plus with me, so no 3" drive.

Hi Duke, should the |upgrade command update to 2.0.4?  Seems I am stuck on 2.0.3.


Actually although I get a positive from netstat that i am connected, I am guessing I am not.  Has anyone else successfully tethered to their phone from the CPC?

Yes, it should upgrade to 2.0.4. Maybe DNS issue?
