I recently picked up a CFFA 1 that I'm trying to use with a Mimeo. I configured it as described in the instructions (as well as configuring the A1 board jumpers). I copied the ultimate apple 1.po files on to a CF card using CiderPress. I tried two different ways of doing this...the first was to open the .po file, select all, and paste to the CF volume. This works, but puts everything in the root directory of the CF card. The subdirectories copy, but they are empty. The second is to extract the files and directories from the .po on to my Windows computer hard drive. Then I open the CF volume in CiderPress and use add files to put the files on the CF card. This works and keeps all the files in the proper directories. However, in both cases, when I try to use the card, trying to "P" (change to a subdir) or L to load a file, I get "46 file not found" error. I've tried both P, then BASIC.DIR and P then BASIC. Same error. Can anyone suggest something to try? I'm thinking maybe the files were not copied to the CF card properly, but I can do a C (catalog) and it lists all the files on the card. Maybe there is something else I'm missing.
I tried two different CF cards and also versions 3.0.1 and 4.0.1 of CiderPress. The CF cards are formatted using the CFFA 1.
I have a CFFA 3000 and have been using it without issue...but cannot seem to get the CFFA 1 to work.
I'd ask this over on dreher.net, but don't have an account yet and thought maybe someone here might know.
