And then there is the NADSBox approach:

You might be better off starting with the fully
disassembled version of TS-DOS and then changing
out the TPDD protocol sections with new code to
send out the commands required by the serial USB
Also, you could probably use VirtualT with
serial port host emulation to connect the
emulated M100 COM port to a physical Host serial
port and talk directly with the dongle.

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. Thoughts?
