Hi.

Cant find fdisk for the interface, I found one for what looks like the HSH interface but it just said HD20 cartridge not found.

I recall its a scsi inface with a special rom for turbo-r, so it dont work with a normal msx2 computer.

Any clues where to find fdisk for it.

It might then be a Novaxis compatible device. Search for Novaxis SCSI and you'll be happy.

I got a 40mb scsi harddrive formated, i copied msxdos2.sys and command2.com to the first partition. used call system and come to dos2. Tried to transfer some files, and then it gave me problems, I think I recall now, it was not stable last time I used it. So there might be some problem with the Interface, I copied some files from a diskette to a subdir, and suddenly it was wrong, destoried the fat tables and wierd names in the dir listing. So I think ether is the interface malfunction or the turbo-r itself. I fixed the keyboard now, but after a while the spacekey stops working, (also the fire at joystick stop working) so its not the keyboard itself, it can return later, but if i switch of the turbo-r and on again, then i can use space again for a while, and then the problem returns. it might be some problem with some of the special MSX engine chips in the turbo-r so its not easy to fix Sad some suggested it could be the autofire circuit that gives the problem, since I lost the "top cover" i cant disable the autofire.

By the way above was a mistake, the fdisktbr.com is around 8500 bytes Wink When you have to create the partitions you need to enter the number (no instructions on the screen about this, took me long time to find out). Else it just said no msx partition.

Anyway if I ever got the MSX TURBO-R (its a A1ST) back on the run, I might try to find a SD-CARD interface or something.

I've used my Novaxis for years, without problems. It's very good.
