Twentyseven? Hmmm, doesn't sound like 'e' to me.
But I'm already using this nick for 15 years or even a few more. I needed something with 5 letters, when formatting floppy discs on my C64.
Second, is the pie/pif scanning portable from the 3520 code to the 3500?
First of all, this code needs to be located. Unfortunately I still do not know the necessary command set for scanning so I could try to find this code. Someone wanted to send this documentation to me, but this someone still didn't do it. But I'll continue nagging him :bigsmile:
Second I do not know how complicated the PI/PIF scanning routines are and if all necessary subroutines can be found in all firmwares or if copying them is a lot of manual work.
Third and last point, the 3520 uses a different assembler code (NEC V850) than previous drives (Hitachi H8). While it is not impossible, to rewrite the code in a different assembler language it's some kind of hell job, probably taking lots of time that I do not have. Additionally the V850 code is much harder to read and understand than the H8 code - at least for me.
So I will probably only TRY to make the 3500 code work on a 2510 firmware. But I cannot promise yet that I will be successful. Even the small bitsetting code may take several hours to transfer to a different drive.
