View Full Version : CD32 Emulation
25 February 2002, 17:45
OK the new WinUAE release is good, but I am trying to get the CD32 emulation to work. I know I need the Kickstart plus extended, however my problem is this:
I have an A1200 and a CD32 however I am unable to dump the CD32 roms as there is no HDD on it, and I hae no transfer cable to hook up or anything.
So if anyone can tell me how I can dump the roms from my CD32 I would really appreciate it.

I don't know how complex link up cables are, but if there are diagrams of pin connections, do you have a soldering iron handy to make one up?
Hmm, alternatively, and this could be a little tricky, any good at coding? I don't know if anything like this exists, but is just an idea for the curious...
Take a look at the "transrom" source and make it read from the right area of memory for the extended ROM. Next, replace the file output code with some form of audio encoding and sample it from your PC. You'll need some software to decode the signal, which should use error checking and/or parity to make sure the file transfer is correct. Oh, and you'll need to burn an ISO which will boot in the CD32 to run the software...
