Re: Firmware changes?

Looking over this forum, it looks like (a) Risc OS is not quite ready for the RPi 3 The RISC OS RC14 distribution is not ready for the Pi3, but RISC OS itself is. and (b) Risc OS alters the firmware on the RPi. Once again, you talk here of the distribution RISC OS RC14, delivered with a kernel, a f...

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

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.

But everyone else moved to using what was esentially Microsoft's floppy format, with partitions inside that could each be formatted to their own spec. No, no, no. On RISC PC, the floppy drive IS a PC floppy drive. It's just formatted with ADFS (800 KB or 1600 KB) by default. But it can read floppie...
