    I'm pretty sure the card I used with this is OK...

    Pretty sure? Be certain and check it on your P2 board like I said, it'll only take less than a minute to do so.

    I just remembered @Cluso99 saying something about not supporting non-SDHC cards. Tried with SDHC card and get something that looks better:
    *Auto Detected P2EVAL
    
    Cluso's P2 Z80 Emulation: Experimental v053a
    
    SD Driver cog= 1
    
    Initialise
    
    Find Directory
    
    Find file(s)
    
      A: ZICOG_A2.DSK *** SD error *** F

    Yes, my later code (the ROM is fine) only supports the SDHC in sector address mode. Old SD and SDHC cards in byte mode will be rejected.

    What about SDXC? Do these all support sector mode?
    (wondering whether this may explain anything since most of my testing has been with SDXC cards)
  • I'm always surprised when someone is found to be using old old old or any old SD cards.

    @Cluso99 - Isn't it only SD cards that use byte addressing? From SDHC on they used block addressing.

    No. SDHC cards originally were byte addressing. It was the v2 spec. I identified SDHC sector mode as v3 but it is IIRC v2.1.
    Anyway, I removed support for the older byte addressing cards from my P2 software drivers a few months ago.

    @Tubular,
    SDXC are backwards compatible with SDHC (sector addressing) although they are often/always originally formatted as exFAT and my drivers require FAT32. Note: P2 ROM can boot from exFAT cards, but can only load from the Boot or Vol sectors as it does not actually recognise exFAT (see the P2 ROM SD Boot writeup/thread).
  • Ok. I hope to get back to testing cards some time, but its not a priority. I would love to understand it all better
  • Don't forget that TAQOZ can format SDHC/SDXC cards in FAT32 with the required hidden partition and in whatever cluster size you spec, but normally 32kB/cluster.

    You think it would be difficult to emulate and Amstrad 8256 or 8512?
