Can you provide me with some more details, like which platform are you running it on and how do you take off the SD card? Edit: Can you try to reproduce the same steps, but closing MMBExplorer before taking out the SD card from the computer?
Running MMBExplorer on macOS Mojave. I think I did close MMBExplorer before ejecting the card from the laptop, but I can't be 100% sure. I eject the card by using the macOS "Eject" menu item. Then I physically remove the card from the slot in the laptop.

I'll try and come up with a series of steps and a specific BEEB.MMB file that reproduce the error but I suspect it'll be tricky because the error is intermittent. In fact, I'd say it was rare. (But it's fairly catastrophic when it happens!)

I've just come across this little gem of an app, thank you very much for it.

I don't know if its already been requested, but a nice option would be to export the directory contents to a csv file.

Hi John,

Thank you for your kind words!

I definitely could do it, is the current order (Locked flag, Directory.name, size, load address, exec address and crc32) about right for your needs?

Cheers,
Rob

As I said, it wasn't difficult at all :mrgreen:

I'm going to fix a couple of small details before making a new release, which should be coming this week.

Meanwhile, here's a csv file that I just generated.

Cheers,
Rob

Wow, thanks Rob,

The column order looks fine to me.

Nice!

I'll sort a couple of things out, and shout here when the new release is ready.

The time has come!

Here's a shiny new release, v1.2.8, which includes Orac's request to export the disk directory as a CSV file, and also implemented some changes in order to avoid the problem that Lurkio reported.

Please grab it here: https://github.com/robcfg/retrotools/re ... tag/v1.2.8

And report any bugs you may find.

Cheers,
Rob

Hi,

does MMBExplorer support the extended BEEB.MMB files that can be used with MMFS 1.50 or greater?

Not yet.

I started working on it, but life got in my way...

I'll move it upper on my priority list.
