Quick question about the floppy side of the machine, is it a shugart or an AX500 interface and can I connect a Samsung SFD-321B to it as a replacement for the broken drive?

Or is it best to replace it with a usb floppy emulator? Also can any one confirm that this machine can run Symbos 3.0 or similar os?

As I can see, it's an AX-350, not an AX-350II. The Arabic firmware is slightly different.

Here's the menu of AX-350 :

Here's the menu of AX-350II :

AX-350 does not have the CALENDAR and the English and Arabic wordprocessors are displayed separetely in the menu.

Which menu do you have ?

Pictures are not displayed. Could you repost them again, please?!

Thanks for all your efforts ! Smile

The new dump of the disk rom is the good one. I've compared with the disk rom found in dhau's machine, and there are only 8 bytes with a different value.

I've now a full working config in blueMSX and I'll soon send it to you ! Smile

Hope it's enough, but if you want more things you can ask me!

Thanks a lot, I now also created an openMSX configuration for it :)

Where can I find your configuration files and the ROMs?!

I'm interested. Is it the MSX1 or MSX2 version? By the way, I think this is off-topic for this thread.

I thinhk there is only one version, that can run on MSX1 and MSX2 while using different screens (screen 2 on MSX1, screens 5 and 7 on MSX2). But of course you need an Arabic machine!

why do u need an Arabic machine, I thought all msx machines are compatible to a huge degree, in the same tier, software written on a sakhr AX-350II will work on a sony HB-F5, and are backward compatible software wise as in software written on a sakhr AX-150 MSX could run on an AX-370 MSX2+ machines.

also are the floppy drives of Yamaha keyboards compatible with Yamaha MSX machines?

Because most software written for Arabic machines need the Arabic rom to work and non-Arabic machines don't have this Arabic rom. In a few cases, the software will partially work (only the part in English or eventually French), but in many cases the software will freeze at starting, because the Arabic rom can't be found.
