Ok, here’s my first set of questions for the list :)
I have a TRS-80 Model 102, a USB 2 Serial Adapter and a Null Modem Cable. The
connection seems to be working but I’m having some issues. I’m trying to use
TEENY.EXE. The documentation says that when run on the PC and connected to the
102 with the NULL Modem Cable, that it will install the TEENY code required to
the Model 100/102. When I did this, the 102 woke up and started to transfer
something and I got an error. This pretty much tells me that my serial
connection is working. From the instructions, it seemed that TEENY.EXE would
find the port and connect which it apparently did…however since I got errors, I
suppose that COM settings may not be correct. Here’s what I see on the 102.
I ran “COM:98N1ENN per the docs on the 102.
TEENY was run on the PC
The 102 then got a ?DS Error
and at the bottom it shows:
File Load Save Run List Menu
At this point, 102 appears to be locked up, I’m assuming it’s waiting for COM
input but I can’t get it to break out. F8, doesn’t do a thing and Power OFF/ON
doesn’t do it either.
This brings me to another question. Without resetting and loosing what’s stored
in Memory, is there some way to break out of Lockups like this?
My main Goal is to use my NULL cable to transfer files/programs back and forth
between the PC and the 102 with software without upgrading the ROM. What’s
simplest way to do this?
