Never heard of this before, i have used other Quantums without issue but they were not the "Fireball" variation

I tried the drive on a standard STE and same problem, spins down at exactly the same point

So how on earth do you install this TOS patch?

Re: Falcon game: Gravon - looking for disk download in english

I have tried to clean off the mouldy patch but it looks like it is embedded into the disk

I'm not messing around with it any more

Some of the data can be taken from the disk but not all

So if any can send me a copy of disk B, that's what i'm looking for

thanks
