TZXduino problem

Post by linomari »

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and I hope to find help:
I made two TZXDUINO and loaded the software in the ATMEGA ver.1.7b chip without problems, I loaded some ROMS in the SD card that reads without problems, I can select them but when I press PLAY, the message "No File Selected" appears and the loading does not start. The problem exists on both cards.
Because it does not work ?
Thanks !

I don't think a TZXDUINO loads ROM files, it loads tape files.

sorry, I didn't specify that by ROM tested on the SD card I meant TAP and TZX files

I made some TZXDuino's too. As I can remember I'd trouble with the "old" TZXDuino-master (V1.7b is from 2018). I used the MaxDuino files https://github.com/rcmolina/MaxDuino_v1.67. Version 1.66 is the latest for "Nano" (V.167 has new code for ST32). You have to make some changes in the userconfig.h tab before you load it into the ATmega (your Display has the wrong resolution and is turned 180°).
On the other side I don't know what you mean with ROM-files. You need tzx or tap files from softwaretapes no ROM. Maybe your software source is wrong ...

thanks, as written in another post I specified that I used tzx and tap files that I mistakenly called ROM.
However I still do not understand I can list the files but it does not start them! I will try to do as your post says

It's not easy to make a diagnostic far from the location where it happens. The files are listet - OK you see a filename, but is it a correct datatype? The displayed filename can also be a directory. If your tzx-file works in an emulator (e.g. Spectaculator) it will work with TZXduino.

hi, I uploaded the Maxduino files successfully, but the result does not change ... I state that I have tested the tap and tzx files with Speccy emulator and they work, so at this point I give up !!!

Same problem with all baudrates? The SD-Card is FAT16 or FAT32 formatted (no exFAT or NTFS)? Some microSD cards may not work. Cards up to 32GB may work - I use 8GB cards. Something wrong with the soldering points or IC connector? Try an other SD-Card reader (maybe an CS-Signal fault?).

unfortunately even changing the baud rate (and this shows that the play / pause button works !!) does not work, the sd card is 2 GB but I also tried others, and I assembled two cards that give the same problem. As a last resort I tried to replace the ATMEGA chip with no result .... :?
