X-memory Data with the card reader
First, I would like to say thanks to the board administrators and the people who post here. You have helped me rediscover my languishing HP-41.

Rediscovering the "Memory Lost" message a couple of times reminded me why I was so careful to document and save important programs. Now that I have my card reader up and running again with O-rings on the feed roller, thanks in part to this site, I am feeling less nervous about recovering from a Memory Lost message. Except...

I have a program I wrote that uses a 72 record data file in extended memory. I wrote a little program that uses the wand to directly load barcode numbers into EM. From my understanding of the card reader manual it is not as straight forward with the card reader. The only way I can think to recover the data file with the card reader is to first load the data into memory using RDTAX or RDTA and then move that data to extended memory. Not a big deal until the data file space is restricted by program memory, then it becomes more of a pain.

Has anyone developed a way of using the card reader to directly load into Extended Memory?

In order of appearance: HP 41CV, CMT-MCGPS, HP 41CX, DM 41, DM 42
