Since CP/M machine discussion came up...
I have an ATR8000. In addition, it has a (forgot brand) board that goes
the cpu and the mainboard and gives it a SASI ? interface. I also have
bridgeboard (S1410?) to then convert that to MFM.
The only thing I didn't get was the MFM drive (it had long since be
the previous owner into a PC). What I never was able to figure out was
low level format the HD !
I don't know that I have the formatter. (Either that or it is there and
don't know how to use it).
I would love it if someone could fill in that long outstanding blank for
Also, any idea if a SCSI drive could be hooked up in lieu of the Xebec
drive ? I know SASI and SCSI1 are close... but I don't dare do this
till I know it
will work (don't want to toast the hardware).
