Where did you find that info ? I only ever saw that EC had a different pinout.. Can't see any mention of EI anywhere :shrug:
I swear I'd seen it in a Motorola manual. But I can't find it right now.

Feel free to ignore my comment.

Re: New board: MonSTer

I noticed today that the CPU temperature of my 68000 processor on the monster board is 68C. It's quite hot but I can hold my finger on it. Still based on what I read for power dissipation this makes no sense. What is the temperature of your cpus? The system runs fine otherwise. I think you'll find ...

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

I think running the post mortem with more than one run. i.e. just BigDOS and no USB/CJAR etc.

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

O.k, I can't repro any of this on my STE with TOS 1.62 or TOS 2.06. So this is dropping off my list. Given the same happens without the USB drivers and just BigDOS there's obviously something else going on that isn't related to the USB code at all.

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

And finally, with everything installed again, if you have no floppy in the drive and try to open it, does it do the same thing ?

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

Oh, you could try BigDOS on it's own too without any USB drivers just to see what it actually does do on it's own.

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

I suppose the last thing to try is disable STORAGE.PRG, and leave USB.PRG & UNICORN.PRG enabled. See if that has any bearing on the issue.

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

I'm not sure I've fixed anything. Try it with the motor on/floppy issue you are seeing as I don't see it. And let me know if it makes any change at all. I have done a quick test now and it seems like the motor is spinning down as it should now. But still have the crashing; inserted a disk with a me...

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

O.k. the motor thing was what I was hoping to be fixed, so that's good.

I've not done anything to address the bad sector reset/crash as I'm not even sure it's the USB drivers at this stage.

I've committed the motor fix so it's in the latest drivers.

Do you find any problems with bad sectors or swedish characters and the USB drivers ? When copying lots of files I've hade som reproducible weird characters show up as files which TOS then couldn't find corresponding real files to.

RE: floppy drive spinning, I noticed one of my STs does this, but the others dont. Alas, I dismissed this as 'one of those things' so I can't remember which one has the issue :D I will try and find time to check them all again and see what differences the 'stays spinning' ST has. I suspect it could...

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

I suspect that wasn't with recent drivers, and you might want to try the recent drivers with your MegaSTE again.

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

troed,

Do you find any problems with bad sectors or swedish characters and the USB drivers ?

Do you see the drive not spinning without the USB drivers too ? I think I've seen this happen without the drivers when you remove a floppy too early and the motor still runs until a floppy is put back in.

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

I'll need to see if I can generate a bad floppy disk to test this as all my floppies are good, and I don't know about the Swedish characters. I can't say it's high priority to fix it though as it's pretty rare to have a bad floppy, or at least it should be. I'm also not sure what's causing your flop...

That's exactly the problem. DTACK needs to be dealt with differently on the MegaSTE.

Just an update to let people know I've started work on the ethernet drivers for USB & TOS, i.e. STiNG support. I'll send another update when I've got something working.

Re: NEW USB Host Controller via ACSI

You've wasted 4GB on that stick though, by only creating 1GB partitions, you can do up to 2GB each.

As for alternative desktops with smaller icons, don't know. Jinnee/Magic ??
