Hi there ive just bought a MEGAFLASHROM 2SD SCC+ 512 KB Ram

But when i try it in combination with the NOVAXIS SCSI interface it gives me a no Memmory error...
this is a bit frustrating because i want to backup my partitions to save my music.... the HDD is from 1997 so i dont know how long it would last....

But if i use MEGAFLASHROM with Sunrise CF ATA-IDE i dont get that weird error... :/
Also the combo Sunrise CF/Novaxis works fine......

Can anybody give a example why this bug happens?

Which did you put in slot 1 and which in slot 2? In other words: which are you booting from?

well i solved the puzzle half way Tongue

i can boot from the Megaflashrom.... but not from the other :/
if i do put the novaxis in slot 1 it refuses to boot and i end up in nextor basic Tongue

but im half way solving the puzzle Smile

the novaxis is now working in slot 2 it seems it gave me that error due the wrong host id setting Smile target id 0 host id 7 and all options enabled..

novaxis does not contain a dos2 so it needs to be in slot 2 and other thing in 1. but nestor is not standaard dos2 so possible thats the problem

I fixed a bug in the Novaxis firmware. The soldered ROM is difficult to replace and the cause is probably different but if you can try without damaging the PCB, here is the link:

Also did you try to press CTRL or SHIFT during startup to not install the second or all floppy drives?
