HxC SD Floppy Emulator

To me the floppy emulator seems to be an interesting topic. I think it's worth starting a new thread. Well, since there seems to be no multi-cart for the Dragon, I bought one of LAFUMAT'S Dragon Disk controllers and the SD floppy emulator by LOTHAREK ( http://www.lotharek.pl ). Delivery took only a ...

Re: Schematics of Dragon Cartridges?

Thank you Rink! I made a little drawing of the 7400, just for me to make it easier to see, what's going on. I know, those symbols are old, but I always liked them better (an it's an old computer ;) . !CTS A12 | CE1 CE2 ------------------- 0 0 | 0 1 0 1 | 1 0 1 0 | 1 1 1 1 | 1 1 (CTS = Cartridge Sele...

Re: Schematics of Dragon Cartridges?

If you want, I'll put a meter on the Dragon Chess board tonight and see what those connections are. Yeah, maybe this would be a good idea. This is the Dragon archive, so it does make sense to store all the information one can get about computer and peripherals. The description of the cartridges is ...

Re: Schematics of Dragon Cartridges?

Yes, I saw the scans, but some connections are hidden by the NAND (Pin 11, Pin 1, the two inputs 4 and 12 seem to be connected, but I cannot see, what's fed in). I own no cartridge, so I can't simply make some measurements. But as Rink pointed out, there is no need anymore to take small EEPROMS and ...

Re: Schematics of Dragon Cartridges?

Wow, thank you for the response. Seems to be an interesting issue :) Strange enough, on other platforms you can find a variety of cartridges. For the Dragon I could not find any. And the machine was quite popular in England, wasn't it? Concerning the PCB. I found an old and unused ISA-formfactor exp...

Re: Schematics of Dragon Cartridges?

Hi Rink,
well I wanted to play around with it, try to make a cartridge, maybe a simple multicart with a bigger EPROM, if I find the time. So a sample cartridge or PCB would be appreciated.

Schematics of Dragon Cartridges?

Hi.
Does anybody have schematics of a Dragon cartridge PCB? Or photos with desoldered parts, where one can see all the connections? What's beneath the 74LS00? :?:
Regards,
Rolo

Dragon joysticks

I've bought a Dragon32 recently. I still can remember, when it appeared in the shops. I considered to get one those days, but in Germany, it was wiped away by the Commodore 64. Well, I made up for it now. :D One of the joysticks was damaged, so I wanted to open it. Hm, where are the screws? Beneath ...
