DriveWire

Post by nute »

DriveWire is a program to connect the Color Computer 3 to a Windows PC.
It works with 98/2000/XP.

It is distributed by http://www.cloud9tech.net/

How long till ReactOS will be able to support it? I suppose the networking
stack needs to get ironed out first.

I've asked about implementing the same functionality under freedos on the
freedos list, but I mostly got criticism.

As far as I know, there are no free tools to connect a PC to a COCO via the
serial port to emulate a hard drive.

If ReactOS could support DriveWire, I wouldn't have to come up with a legal
copy of Windows.

That's a complex question, noone here could answer it definitively

Well why would the FreeDOS team be interested in implementing this really specific functionality into the actual base OS? If you want to write a driver go for it.

For those of you who care, the protocol is open and there is some source code for the DriveWire server on SourceForge.

And the DriveWire specification white paper at Cloud9
