Awhile ago there was a discussion about how a m100 could save and recall files 
from a usb stick. The discussion stopped when the issue of changing file 
directories came up. Perhaps there is an answer. An old program on ROM called 
Disk + used the M100 serial port to transfer files to a host computer. The host 
would run a program on floppy that was equivalent to interserver/interlink of 
the old days and just sit there waiting for commands. No further user 
interaction required.

The major thing about Disk + is that it allows for changing file folders. This 
means that a huge library of programs could be organized. Now, there are also 
products available that a usb memory stick can connect to that allow for a 
serial connection to transfer files back and forth (however, the usb stick 
would have to be formatted on a more modern computer before use). These devices 
take in simple commands for creating, updating, and deleting files. Is it 
possible to use an M100 emulator and the ROM file of Disk + to 'map' the 
instructions that are used for create, update, delete? Then look at the ROM 
code and change those commands to match those of  the serial to USB device?   
Note: Disk+ and the usb to serial devices allow for changes in baud rates.
