I have a Floppy Emu and copied all of my basic programs to a Smarport hard drive image. Whenever I try to use the auxiliary memory during the process of loading half of a DHR image, the Apple IIc does not know that there is a smartport hard drive connected. This happens when I use POKE 49237,0. The very next step is to BLOAD that half of the image file but it tries to read it from the internal floppy drive. If I issue a "PREFIX,S5,D1" command from within the program at that point, I get the message NO DEVICE CONNECTED. I can issue POKE 49236,0 and BLOAD the other half of the image just fine.
The issue seems to be that the AUX memory has no clue that there is a smartport hard drive attached. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am thinking I can POKE the AUX memory somewhere to tell it I have a hard drive attached, but I don't know where in memory this may be. The other option is to do all of the BLOADing to the main memory and write a routine to copy the data to AUX memory after it is BLOADed then BLOAD the other half to main memory.
Thanks for your help,
