Getting a drive working with MITS software?
I have a lot of MITS software on 8" hard sectored disks and I would like to
move that onto other disks without having to modify boot code. One example
is MITS Music Basic, or the Music Operating System. I found someone who
has it and it is in the "FedEx" right now. : ) MITS was working on a 4
voice music card and had a special version of basic written for it. There
is even a version of Star Trek with sound effects!
I want to be able to preserve this stuff as historically accurate as
possible. It would be MUCH easier to use a flash memory chip and emulate
the entire disk subsystem at the I/O port level. I can't seem to find any
MMC, SD, or compact flash cards in the 1-4MB range dirt cheap. I thought
that with flash memory prices being low I could find some. I want to
retain the physical piece per disk feel and not have all the disks in one
memory image. So this means I have to have a cheap media source.
