Re: Dragonsoft Explorer

the write protection off on save disc will allow high score saving, if beeb turned off at wrong time save gets corrupt, hence the reset is needed to get game working again, prob why MIA as folk thought discs are popped, like I thought before finding the reset file :D

Re: ANF03 and motor control DIN cable

Most have a auto level control, hence my elk tape recorder has no controls but works, so must have a small pre amp in the player.

old hi-fi 5 pin dins are pre amp like expensive vinyl decks , that then go into a expensive amp or mixer :D
