|Old IL-9114 disks|
Message #1 Posted by Simon Strach on 19 Mar 2002, 7:08 p.m.
In the 70ties and 80ies I used to be a power-user of HP HH, starting off with
the HP35 in 72.
I must have spent at leaest 10.000 $ then in HP-calculators and peripherals.
I was one of the founding members of the CCD Germany, you might recall the respective
After the 41 CX(Y) I had an HP 48 and now I own an HP 49G.
I still believe the 41 is THE superiour machine, and hasen't found it's successor yet.
HP should have developed it further, 10 times the speed and memory, but not as sophisticated
as the 49G, which is too complex for my taste.
I have a question someone might be able to help with:
I used to have a 9114B IL-diskdrive, which I sold long time ago.
Now with the super emulator V41 R7( a really fine job!) I would like to run extensive programs on nuklear theory
which I developed in 86.
I have same 40 disks, all formatted on the 9114, which of course are not DOS/Win compatible.
I looked at various converters (LIF and others), but don't seem to get any data out of them. No program files, nor ROM-files.
Does anyone know a way to get the data via the DOS-floppy-drive to the V41 R7?
I tried the converter, it ran for ages and then prompting the message no valid data (or so) found.
Tips or work-arounds are most welcome.
