Re: Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

The Risc PC IDE port will take two devices running in master slave configuration on one cable ( be careful about the cable not to long), but you do need to check the drive types because some of the early drives Connor i think (been a long time so hard to remember) don't like western digital drives,...

Re: Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

Thanks ...... Ah, there is the problem - there is no internal CD drive, so i can't free up an IDE interface connection.
I do have an external CD drive connected via the parallel port, thats only recognised if I run some software to fire up CDfs.

Re: Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

Hmm ... I am getting s bit confused here! Are you suggesting trying to put a FAT partition onto the original ADFS disc? Zipping the files INTO that and then connecting via USB to the Pi? No, but you could put a second disc, FAT formatted, on you RISC PC, then copy all data on it. You can have two h...

Re: Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

Thanks for solving the mystery. The FAT partition would not help as I want to copy the complete contents of the ADFS to a device where it can be used on the pi. You can zip/spark it. Then no problem... Hmm ... I am getting s bit confused here! Are you suggesting trying to put a FAT partition onto t...

Re: Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

If your RiscPC is on the same network as the Pi, you can transfer the files that way - far easier! Thanks for the suggestion. Alas my RISC PC 600 is virtually as it came out of the factory, so no network card, it's living in total isolation apart from DOS floppies .... But I don't have a way of rea...

Re: Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

While it seems to be identical, SCSIFS (used for USB discs) is not ADFS (used for IDE discs). So I'm not surprised if you can't read your RISC PC drive on a Pi. For the other side, you can try to format a small FAT partition on the disc. The RISC PC will (perhaps) be able to use it. Thanks for solv...

Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

I am trying to transfer the contents of my RISC PC 600 hard drive, running RISC OS 3.5 to the Pi SD. The idea was to remove the hard drive from the RISC PC, plug it into a USB TO IDE adaptor connected to the ras pi and copy the files. I found one post that suggested this works. I have tried everythi...
