SLotman of MSX Files noticed Okei has recently released a new FAT16 driver for MSX, fixing issues with RAMDISK in MSX-DOS 2.20. If the RAMDISK is installed before the FAT16 driver, everything should work fine now.

Currently I'm trying to adapt the novaxis bios so it will work with this driver. What is the general experience with fat16 on msx. Any problems?

No probs, but I'd still like to have an 'IMPROVE' for FAT16 Smile

Hmmmyeah... MultiMente doesn't work quite well with FAT16, the RAMDISK and FORMAT calls are suspended... FAT16 still has a long way to go on MSX Sad

There is an updated version of multi mente or patch on the page of okei and in the new version of the fat16 driver the ramdisk should work. Never use the ramdisk btw.. it is slower than the HDD Smile

Almost all MSX SW only works with FAT12, that's why I don't find FAT16 very useful.

Well I 'normal' programs wil not use the fat directly, for those problems it doesn't matter.

RAMDISK @ turboR is way faster than my ATA-IDE, w/ Alex Wulms R800 patch installed... I only get around 300kB/s with my HDD Sad
