MP3@64

MP3@64 module, exclusively made for IDE64 V4 in 2016.
There is a unique opportunity to order MP3@64 module again. The original device was designed by Oliver Achten in 2005 and resurrected from limbo by continuous work of our friend Comos. Thanks to a IDE64 plugin and advanced music player created by Soci, it can play any MP3, including variable bit rate encoded and constant bit encoded 320kbps. Let's create a music box driven by C64+IDE64+MP3@64. The price is influenced by the higher cost of the MP3 chip and it is 49 Euro for a module.
For more info, please drop an email: comos@post.cz

IDEDOS 0.90 patch 51

New maintenance release is out for 0.90 because of the ntsc JiffyDOS timing issue, and anyway there were some pending changes over the years. The changelog:

  • JD protocol timing adjusted to handle NTSC in manager 
  • disabled write cache default (can cause corruption on power loss) 
  • progress bar in manager was sometimes wrong for long directories 
  • set pio0 transfer setting and remember it (for some hardware) 
  • drive detection updates, hope it's not worse now than before 
  • use reset for recovery (fixes hang after interrupted transfers) 
  • don't spin up power saving drives when changing timers 
  • invalidate drive after direct write (consistency after filesystem creation) 
  • change geometry handling, some new drives don't like CHS at all
