Re: DIY QuickDisk-emulator for MZ-800

Theoretically, there should be no limit to embedding read / write files in dsk format in the QD emulator. The only way to do that would be for the emulator to treat DSK images as virtual QuickDisks, like it does with directories (on the SD-card) today. But I'm not sure why one would want to do this.

Re: DIY QuickDisk-emulator for MZ-800

Not sure what you mean, are you asking if the emulator can "mount" DSK-files and allow the MZ to access files within such a disk image? I can't see anything in the sources for the QD-emulator that allows this.

Using CVIDEO (pin #1) or CSYNC (pin #3)? I believe they are inverted signals.
I have tried them all - cvideo, csync and separate syncs. I guess I have to hook up an oscilloscope and see what these signals looks like.

Mostly black screen, with the occasional blue flicker.

Re: MZ-700 plotter pens on eBay

The pens arrived yesterday, will see if they fit this weekend :) Unfortunately I don't have any paper (or even a paper holder) so I can't do any real tests yet.
