Re: Dragon 32 jumping to buff mode spontaneously?

One of the reason why I like the RetroTINK is that the latency is extremely low on this device and pricing is alright if one also compare with the slightly more expense Framemeister which costs around 3x. But, as mentioned, let me take some better picture during this upcoming weekend.

Re: Dragon 32 jumping to buff mode spontaneously?

The RetroTINK 2X Pro arrived today for pickup at the local post services and here is some quickly photos taken with Pixel 4 but I'll take some better photos this upcoming weekend and compare with between original CVBS, CoCoVGA and RT2XPro. If there are any suggestions for test images, then let me kn...

Re: 5.25" floppy disk controller

One can hope that Windows 10 would pick up a 5.25" drive; Windows 8.1 does. So don't think one need to go old school XP to get this to work. Then again, if the utils doesn't work with newer OS well then that's another matter.

Re: 5.25" floppy disk controller

How generic is the Dragon Floppy Drive in terms of being used with other disk controllers? Meaning would it be possible to connect the DFD to such interface and then use it to write back images to floppies?

5.25" floppy disk controller

Well, got hold of a Dragon floppy drive and next thing was to be able to convert disk images to 5.25" which of course wasn't the easiest so started to look around whats available of usb based controllers and well there is actually hardware available! KryoFlux, the renowned forensic floppy controller...

Re: Dragon 32 jumping to buff mode spontaneously?

The Dragon composite isn't the best but I would say that a proper converter would be RetroTINK 2X which I hopefully will get myself by the end of this week. I'll primary be using it together with C64 and Amiga; but I'll report how well it goes. Issue here is that the signal output from the Dragon is...

Re: A next-generation Dragon?

Agree the cartridge slot shouldn't be removed and while there might not be that much enhancement that can be done; but what about having an internal cartridge slot for smaller cards which could be hidden inside the case?

Diagnostic Cartridge

Would anyone be able to point to parts/kit to put together a TRS/DD Diagnostic Cartridge since we have the ROM's available here on DA?
