I am ashamed to mention that I did not create the recovery disk when I first received the unit. I was not sure if that was going to require a CF or a floppy disk and I only have floppy disks at the moment. I see now that it just needs a floppy but if the flash memory is suspect now, it will not do me any good to make a backup, correct?

So, even though I clearly see the MapROM option saying "off", it may actually be on? That would appear to explain what I am seeing. I have no way to recover to a clean environment, though.

Hmmm....then again, if someone else has made a recovery disk, is it possible for another ACA500 owner to use it to recover? Is the data written to disk in a special format? Is it just a file??

The flash environment isn't too damaged that it does not work, it is just not saving properly it would seem.

As for a noticeable improvement with maprom enabled, that will be hard to judge right now since I am only working from floppies. I do not have any software available that I can use to test it further. I was planning on loading a lot of .adf files once I receive my CF cards in the mail.

Mine was corrupt at some point : I was not able to switch off the maprom function. Maybe this tip will solve your problem like me...

If you activate maprom, do you see speed improvement in your WB ? How much memory you have when activited, 1mb or 1.5mb ?
