I recovered the program for this device from old disk, and this week was first time in history I actually inserted the device to my MSX. The reason was that the device has 11 DIP-switches and I had no any sort of manual... so the thing stayed on the garage unused for about 20 years. Now I anyway did some reverse engineering... The device seems to work like new, so I've now uploaded the original software and included also some usage & programming instructions that I wrote.

I've not managed to find any information about this device, so I post here just in case someone has the same problem.
You can download original software + my notes by clicking here.

Oh, an EPROM programmer for MSX, that’s nice.

Yeah, and it even seems better than my PC version Smile The PC version needs extra power adapter, cable to the computer and that mess takes half of the table. This one I just plug in. No extra wires needed and when I type programming voltage ie. 18.2v the output is exactly 18.2v no more or less... Pretty good result after being unused for 20+ years. Smile

Wow! Very, very interesting Nyyrikki! You have plans to reverse engine and take schematic? Big smile

No, I have no plans to draw schematics but anyway I ported TOEPROM software for it. I will add it to the package when I've tested it.

No, not really... Something like 10 so far in my life. I can't really justify this port, but pretty much same problem with all MSX projects... it is anyway nice to have good tools. Smile

Yes I like It very much! You can use it to make a new audio bios rom. Unfortunately I do not have this nice piece of hardware Big smile

That sounds like a good test case. If you need one, drop me a mail with the version you need and I'll do it for you. One funny thing is that the TOEPROM manual is in Dutch, so although I've ported it, I have no idea how the software actually works. LOL Smile

If you need help with translations from Dutch on TOEPROM, let me know.
