Hi all,
I m playing around with a bert interface and I was wondering if it support Okei FAT16 and if there is a Fdisk fat16 for it ?
By the way I guess it's still doesn't support CD , right ?

Hi... fat16 is not supported on the BERT interface, I think it need a newer BIOS. There is support for cdrom. There are some tools like ccopy, cdir , cdd , cdda (where you can play audio cd's). Drive mapping is not supported.

btw. I'm not sure, but i think that Hans has ever said "if someone is making a new cdrom driver for the bert interface i will give a slot expander for free. (for the one who makes it) " Wink but maybe he should confirm this statement WinkWink

2.7 is the latest bios. But it's a EPRoM i think. so not not a simply flash.
On the info pages if you can scroll down to the SCSI Bert interface. There is a download link called "BERT utils" for cdrom.
I'm not sure but if you want to use a cdrom, be sure the hardisc is always on SCSI ID 0 and the CDROM on a free SCSI ID.
Overhere it's working fine.

Hans told me that there is some pin that need to be switched in order to allow a MK to use bert a bert rom.
Does anyone of you know which pin need to be swithed ?

My bert is working on a Turbo-R. If i remember it correctly the adres is &H30.

Today i got my hands on a new (yes! NEW!!!) Hardisk! 73 GB Seagate 10k.7 (Cheetah) !!!
It's a ULTRA U320 SCSI drive (small connector) and it's working on the BERT interface!!!
The cool part is the noice!!!! (very silent!!! compair to my old SCSI drive!)

So i'm running a copy job to restore all the data! ... still waiting for a while Big smile Big smile
