Hi All,

I am a new MSX user and have recently purchased a CX5M. I have done this BIOS upgrade to upgrade it to the SFG-05 card which all works fine. But now I am trying to get DSM Mk2 working. I have the orignal DSM cartridge and that was working fine but mk2 looks much better!

I have purchased an SD512 card from 8bits4ever and have stuck the ROM for DMSmk2 on the SD. I try to boot it using Sofarom. It starts to boot, says it is Installing Ram Disk but these never goes any further.

Anyone got any idea how I can get this working? I have the SD512 setup to use the 512k memory. And typing memory at the dos prompt shows it has 512k available.

Really want to get this working as it looks so much better for creating music than the yamaha programs and DMS1 mk1.

Thanks for any help.

Matt.

It's a simple standard 32kB ROM... maybe the program is trying to use the RAM in which itself was loaded (as it's supposed to run from ROM).

Does it run ok with the MegaRam mode of the SD512?

Sorry for delay in replying. I tried everything to get this to work on the SD512 but gave up. I then just tried loading some other MSX software and found that most of that didn't work etiher. Turns out the SD512 just isn't really a good device for loading original MSX software. I have since sent it back and now have a megaflashrom with the 512k memory and DMS1 mk2 is now loading properly.

Did anyone ever find the original manual for this software? Trying to get the hang of using it but would by nice to have the maual to read through.
