  • Da n/Rich, I have the manuals for my CompuPro System, there is no ROM, but the SS1 has a RAM/ROM space of 4K that can hold a ROM if you optionally want to. The SS1 manual has test routines that I suppose you could put into a ROM, but as far as I can tell nothing came with it. b

  • Kyle, I am less convinced the problem with the tape you made me was the tape, it's more likely to be the teletype reader. IF the RS232 converter was a problem, it was not the main problem in my opinion. I was able to load BASIC using the RS232 converter and a different teletype. I did a lot of playing around with the teletype from the VCF and I have narrowed the problem (or at...

Ideally you...

  • No need to send a tape, I already made one. I was able to load BASIC no problem via serial port on a PC just now. I punched another tape here and it checked out, but I really think that the 680 is just barely fast enough to read in a papertape at all, the RS232 converter may be just enough to keep it from processing the tape input. You just have to stand on one foot and sing...

  • I am re-loading the BASIC now directly via serial connection at 110b, bypassing the RS232 converter and teletype to make sure the source file is ok. I already shredded the printout from the bad tape, but I am quite sure it was the tape. Correction to my last email -When I asked you to make me a new tape that the copy was from the file , not the old papertape. My logic was wrong...

  • Kyle/anyone interested, At home I have a lot more luck, but I ran into a snag. I was able to load in almost the entire way this time, until I hit a bad part in the tape. From experimenting I found that if the load bombed in the middle you can rewind a hair and start over from that spot sometimes. The tape kept failing in the same spot, so I printed the tape and found it was garbled...
