Problem with copy from CD Rom drive

Post by hubi1809 »

Hello ,

i installed SVN 32454 on an old PII system , while testing i found
that there is a problem with copying files from the CD Rom drive.
With useage of the copy command i never was able to copy files
bigger than 60 MB from a CD to the disk , using XCOPY increased
the size to around 100 MB , but in both cases , when the file is
bigger than this maximum size, i always was not able to finish the
copy. Always the system is freezing. I'm thinking that its not a problem
of the CD Rom drive itself , is this a known problem of current ROS versions or is anybody able to copy bigger files ?


Regards,

Its quite interesting. I`ll try to reproduce it on emu, but in any case, can you get the debug output from this machine? It would require a null modem cable though, as well as another PC. Both need to have serial ports to connect the null modem cable. On your test machine you then run ROS Debug version and on the other - hyperterminal or similar app.

Hello,

unfortunately its not possible to do a debug with the system here ,
i have no null modem cable and no 2nd computer available here .
i will try to install ROS on an similar system at my home this or next weekend, maybe i can try to make a debug then.
I have a second system at home with an linux installation , is hyperterminal available as linux version or can you give me the
name of a working linux tool i could use ?

Hi,

there's minicom and microcom if you're not afraid of working with console. Cutecom is QT-based counterpart if you need some GUI.
