Hello everyone,

I've been using sjasm to generate small .bin files for some time now, and everything went well.

What does happen ?

PS : The file header is

You're probably overwriting the disk ram area that usually starts over these addresses. If you're not disabling the 2nd drive, it's even before $E000, and with only one drive, you'll get RAM free to more or less, $E200-$E300.

You can use ONEDRIVE.COM to setup only one drive and not forcing to press CTRL at starup.

I guess it's time to move to a rom format then.

EDIT : Instead, I shifted the .bin file $1000 lower, making it $9000 - $D560. And it worked.
