I am using WinVice 2.4.1 UNSTABLE on Windows 7 and trying to resurect my old c64 based BBS system from 1987. I thought it might be cool to use either the IEE488 1001 or 8250 drive emulation to give it more space. (D9090 or D9060 would be cool if you ever get it happening). I set up x64 with 2 x 8250 drives (on unit 8 & 10) and can create the 4 .d82 files and mount them ok. I can read the directories, and sometimes (if it is a fresh image) write to the whole disk. But after having initially written to the disks using the BBS configure SW, I reset and load the BBS Sw and they just bounce around track 39 and other random tracks. Even without the BBS SW I seem unable to access any file stored higher than track 39?
It seems similar to the 1571 second side problem, just by watching the T/S meters.
Is there anything you would like me to do to try and track down this bug?
Would be nice to have the bigger disks 8-)
