I'm just starting to test my RD.
It seems easy to use but I wonder a question : what is the switch (on the top) used for ?

Thx

Maybe is it used for FPGA updating?

I really like the rookie drive. It's fairly easy to use. I hope Xavirompe keeps working on the drivers to make it more compatible. Should be nice to play Sd snatcher with the rookie drive.

I'm working in the drivers... Now SD Snatcher works perfectly.... and more games... Remember that you can use EMUFILE or Sofarunit from Nextor for those games

Okay, I'm a real noop here. I installed sofarun on the usbstick and it boots. At a certain point the directory settings needs to be created but it fails. When I try manually, there is no error message but the dir isn't created. It's like the disk is readonly.
Furthermore, I only see the contence of the diskimage. How can I start a diskimage from here ?

Maybe are you trying to create the settings is the romdisk of rookie drive... Be sure that you are writing in the USB... You can launch directly the DSK directly with sofarun. Or from Nextor with SRI.COM (the sofarun disk emulator) or from nextor with EMUFILE.COM...

@Victor: At startup I did the F2 to install sofarun. After a reset the msx boots and sofarun is started. I can see any file on my usb drive, so there is nothing for sri.com to run. I have also put the files in the "Nextor files and tools.zip" on the USB, but I can not see them either in sofarun ??

My advice:

- Eliminate ROMdisk in recovery mode (with F3)
- Copy all the files of "Nextor files and tools.zip" to the root of pendrive (in FAT16, of course...)

I tried F3, without result. When I start the rookiedrive, it boots in nextor basic. call usbfiles returns "syntax error". Any other ideas ?
