|Updates and strange Finance module behaviour (with HEPAX/NoVRAM)|
Message #1 Posted by Diego Diaz on 22 Sept 2008, 11:23 p.m.
A new release of the Windows Configuration Utility and its corresponding updated guide are available for download in the usual place.
This version already includes the configuration tools for the new NoV-64 module.
Eventually, during the many burning test performed to verify Windows utility, I selected the Finance module images and burnt them into NoV-64 Flash ROM, namely into pages C & D.
When executing HEPAX 002 to verify proper mapping and functionality I was shocked as page D showed up as "HEPAX RAM"!
My first thought was that I had made some sort of mistake in the process, or (the worst case) something was going *really* wrong into NoV-64's guts.
After repeating the whole test several times with an assorted set of randomly choosen ROM images, it was clear that the NoV-64 was working like a charm, and my procedure was correct.
Then I thought that the upper page image of the Finance module I have may well be corrupted. So I dove into the module's box seeking for a *real* Finance module, which I fortunatey have.
Burnt a *clean* NoVRAM only with HEPAX emulation, plugged Finance module into port 3 and execute HEPAX 002: as supposed, page D showed up as "HEPAX RAM" again.
I'll be happy if someone out there with both *real* modules: HEPAX and Finance, could duoble check this.
Cheers from Spain.
