After booting the DIsk ][ runs, but don't loading dos Sad
I have found some info at:
http://www.atarimagazines.com/creative/v10n5/60_Rana_Elite_Disk_Drives.php
But I don't know if the problem is in controller or I need some special dos.
Has anybody expierence with Rana controllers?

I have no experience with RAN

I have no experience with RANA Drives. I could not bring up the page you listed.

But I do have an original RanaSystems Elite Enhancement disk from 1984.

Front has 1.Prodos
2. Dos 3.3
3. Microsoft CP/M (60K)
4. Microsoft CP/M (56K)
5. Applicard CP/M

Back is Pascal 1.1

It just might need a Rana Drive to go with the card. I do have some Rana Drives. I just thought they were the same as Apple drives. But I know nothing about them. Maybe your drive is head is dirty, or the speed is off. Or the drive that copied the stuff was off from yours. Does the Apple ][ drive work with a regular disk control card?

Take Care

Re: I have no experience with RAN

I have a RANA Elite with the 4 drive controller. I really could use a copy of the diskette you have there.
