After hard work i have my Amstrad CPC 464 alive and disc drive too EME 150 (after change drive belt and same cleaning and lubrification). Incredible after 35 years!!

I loose my cpm 2.2 disk and i found Dsk2cdt2disc amazing win application that can help me.
I try it on emulator to check how use it. All ok, i undestand how.
   
But when i try on my cpc464 it's reading the loader but after it do not transfer any file. It's run, the tape restart and the output is :
Found rsx block 1. The tape go ..... but nothing.

The cassette transfer is good. For Other cdt file for example games it"go.

Where can be the problem?

Excuse for my poor english.

Quote from: dodogildo on Today at 19:24When my school grades dropped in the 7th grade, my physics teacher and my father met at the parents' meeting. My father said to my teacher, "Actually, our child is smart. I don't understand why his grades have dropped. For example, he can beat computer chess at the 9th level." he teacher's answer was the same as many ignorant people at the time: "Computer games? That's why his school grades dropped. It should definitely be banned!"  :P
 
Guess the result! So in the years that followed, I was banned from Amstrad during the school term. Of course they thought so. Every day when I returned from school, I would take my computer down from where it was stored in the closet, and when my parents came home from work, I would put it back in the closet (as soon as I heard the door key click, at the speed of light). A few years passed like this. During these years I played endless games but under constant stress.  :picard:
We could actually be twins at this point! Amstrad was king and school went complete hell!

Oh interesting! What does this 2-ROM OS do? I haven't found the other thread yet!

The firmware is still present with the editor and monitor.
I redirect B941 (verifying at init time that is the the actual address at 39).
I call the regular interrupt routine before handling the display (CRTC rupture and raster). If the routine takes too much time with altered firmware, it would explains the flicker.

Oh! I read too fast. If the inks aren't working, well there you have it! Before the status bar, the firmware is meant to set the border.

a little flicker at the top 2cm of the screen or so - but only when using the 2 ROM version of the OS ROM that I built and is available for download in the other thread.  I'd say most likely it's something I have done or missed - not everything is compatible yet, but it is very stable (except for the inks not working correctly).

Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 11:54, 20 February 242) Anyone ever rent games? We had a place in Dublin City where you could rent out the games for a quid or two, or a fiver for a big box compilation. Needless to say, I spent a lot of money on rentals and blank tapes between 1989-1991! But there were just some games that I knew they had, but were never available when I went in. Until I went in one morning, stupidly early for a Saturday and caught it on opening. The Sega Master Mix compilation was one in particular as I wanted it for Super Wonder Boy in Monster Land. Too bad the tape loader was so bad, it crashed almost every time.

There used to be a PD* library in Cathal Brugha Street (Dublin). I used to go in there to get PD software. There was a lot of crap, but sometimes you'd accidentally stumble across some cool games or tools.

Bryce.

* PD = Public Domain. For those too young to know, it was closed source, but free to distribute software. You just paid for the disk they put it on.
That's where Computer City was located too. Wonder if we're talking about the same place? Didn't know they did PD stuff as well.

I think Computer City moved into the same building after the PD library went out of business. Wasn't Computer City the company that was on the top floor of Clery's for a while?

Bryce.

Nah, that was Tomorrows World. It then moved from there into the Ilac Centre across from where the Argos is. I actually bought the 4 Amtix Accolades compilation when TW was upstairs in Clery's.
It then became a health food shop when it went under circa 1990. I've no clue what it is now!
