Re: MZ-700 + MZ-1U06 Help needed

The K&P rom has the same functionality as the original from sharp. In addition, it has a few extensions, or still in minidos.

Re: Unknown hardware for MZ 800

If you are uing the MZ800 FDC you dont need an expansin unit. Bur there was an expansionsunit to conect MZ700 FDC and other cards to the MZ800.

By my self, i have bulid an busadapter to conect the MZ700 FDC to the MZ800 ( you must remove the (ep)rom from the MZ700 card !! )
