That's very nice, thank you!

As soon as I have a little time, I'll be making a new version of the pdf.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: New Member, long time Dragon 32 owner

I’d say that if you don’t want to connect the Dragon to another computer, the DragonMMC and the CoCoSDC are your best options.

Re: 5.25" floppy disk controller

If you want to write back disk images into floppy disks, you can use CoCoDisk (http://www.nitros9.org/FILES/CoCoDisk.zip) which uses Simon Owen's FDRawCMD driver on Windows (http://simonowen.com/fdrawcmd).

You may need to remove the vdk header from your files, though.

make
And put your roms in the ~/.xroar/roms folder.

That's about it.

Re: A next-generation Dragon?

The machine that I describe in the precedent post should be relatively easy to create, except for the extended port. You put a RPI in a box and install Xroar under Linux. But all I have read about this at the moment is that very few people are interested and I think Xroar is no very developed for t...
