Quite a while back there was a discussion on the CFFA discussion forums about a native driver for the CFFA card for CP/M. While at the time all I had was a Softcard clone, I was interested to see that Bob Applegate had developed the initial version of a native driver for Applicard CP/M and the CFFA. Unfortunately after letting us know the driver was underway Bob got busy with other things!
Fortunately, after persistent bugging (sorry Bob!) he was kind enough to mail me disks for the driver (his hardware is currently non-functional) and I have posted the driver. There are two places where you may get hold of this code.
On Sourceforge there is now an active project for the driver at:
Also, I have uploaded the code, driver and disk images to the Apple CP/M conference, at:
The state of the driver is IN DEVELOPMENT and while it appears to be functional there are probably lots of bugs and opportunities for optimization. Do not use this driver with data you care about! I have a CF card devoted to testing this driver to avoid potentially losing data.
On my queue after I get my CFFA booting CP/M directly and my CFFA3000 plugged in (been a busy week!) I'll write up my first testing experiences with Bob's driver. I guess I need to set up a development environment for Applicard drivers as well. More retro-goodness, I love it! Just wish I had more hours in the day...
