Re: Do those exist at all: Serial-to-USB / Parallel-to-USB / SCSI-to-USB / PCMCIA (Type I or II) to USB adapters ?

Well, it is a long time tradition actually, there was a well known Commodore 1541 Floppy Drive which also actually was a standalone computer. 🙂 Do you have a link to that ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_1541 This thing has its own CPU, RAM, ROM and even DOS 🙂 If you guys ever trying to …

Re: Do those exist at all: Serial-to-USB / Parallel-to-USB / SCSI-to-USB / PCMCIA (Type I or II) to USB adapters ?

The HP200LX seems to have a PCMCIA slot, so it might be possible to install an USB PCMCIA card. Together with matching drivers (PCMCIA card services or PC Card services etc) it might run on the 200LX. That being said, it's not too easy to find something on the web. Google nolonger obeys the …

According to the Amiga folks, there was that CFU950 chip for 16-Bit PCMCIA, but actual cards using it became very rare. 🙁 https://www.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/pdf/188079/OXFORD/OXCFU950_07.html Maybe using Compact Flash cards is an alternative. They are kind of pin compatible to PCMCIA, but …

I've found some DOS drivers for USB mice years ago. However, they do work with certain USB 1.x controllers and text-mode applications only, I'm afraid. 😨 https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=512123#p512123 USB keyboard support is a bit tricky, because most developers/companirs assume that the BIOS …

Re: Windows 11 has been released

Speaking of iOS and mobile devices, I'm currently a bit stranded with them here, also.. For the last years, I'm using a Raspberry Pi 4 (formerly Pi 3) here, because I couldn't find a new digital "home" after Win 7 went EOL. Windows 8.0 was the last PC OS that I dared to use (on my sister's old …

Re: MS-DOS 7 vs 6 - Are there incompatibilities to know about?

in DOS
I think there are a bunch of programs missing from 7 by default? Maybe memory management stuff? DOS7 is not intended to be a stand-alone OS, just the layer beneath Win95, but you can make it so if you want. I think there are a bunch of programs missing from 7 by default? Maybe memory management …

Re: IDE to SD card question

in DOS
Hi everyone, I would like to inform you about a special case: Unlike Windows, MS-DOS itself doesn't need partitions. It's possible to format a flash medium or a HDD as a "super floppy". Like a Zip disk, so to say. Such a formatted medium does contain the same structure as a floppy. An MBR, boot code …

Re: Windows 11 has been released

^I agree, thank you for the explanation. ^^ Also, I wasn't thinking of you when I complained about UX/UI designers. I merely meant those many others that follow the current fad, without question it. Speaking of iOS and mobile devices, I'm currently a bit stranded with them here, also.. For the last …
