How many Micro Cosmos out there??

I am an owner of the above.

Not sure if the ONLY differences are the lack of scsi and floppy but there is little to NO documentation out there that mentions the Micro.

Jookie, if you read this.. How many did you make?? just the one batch?

My main weird issue right now is that I have a Shared drive.. that I did not create.. that I cannot seem to get rid of.. I did not RESET everything.

I have no USB drives in it. I have no network shares, and no SD card.. but its there. I know the microSD the Rasp Linux is on is 8gb.. Is it possible that the shared drive was put on the OS MicroSD card???

If so.. is that good? bad? I have no way that I know of to find the path for it.

unfortunately I never heard about that.

Do you have any details about Micro Cosmos? photos, prices?

Just one batch. But there is no difference when it comes to hardware betweeen MicroCosmos and the CosmosEx v1, except it lacks the floppy connector. So everything that applies for normal CosmosEx applies to MicroCosmos.

Just ignore it for now if you don't have any other issues with it...

Well I do have issues in that I wanted to used a shared directory from my Qnap as a common directory I can save all my ST stuff. I have disabled OR lets say not clicked ENABLE on the Shared drive.. and its still there??? I am going to assume its part of the Raspian image??

You mean just the desktop icon? Well, it could be removed from the desktop when not enabled... If it comes from the auto-generated desktop.inf, maybe there's a minor bug not disabling the shared drive icon in desktop.inf when it's not enabled...

> Also my Hardware ver. says 2 - but its closer to ver 1 in the hardware?

No, you are right, it's ver. 2, not ver. 1 - it has the larger Xilinx which was used later, not in v.1, so it's v.2.

I seriously have no idea. The thing always worked well for me with the software supplied on the enclosed SD card.
I am pretty sure, I never installed any update or other distribution. I don't even know which distro is in use on mine.

So if I download the latest image on Jookie site since I have v.2 I should be ok? Just swap out the sd card.. and see it boot all good?

I have all my stuff working on mine now.. in general.

Now I am trying to use it on my new to me PAK68/3 - which seems to be working great.. except that I can only read from the cosmosex.. not write. Not between SD and USB.. not SD TO SD.. not floppy to SD OR USB.. weird. Using HDDRiver 10.15 btw

If you read this jookie.. how different is the way Ultra Satan does things, than Cosmosex for the SD hdd??

Old thread, did another group take up this project.
Late to the game, looks neato.
