Description

This is the DivIDE Plus Compact Flash and IDE Interface for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum home computer.

This interface plugs into the ZX Spectrum's expansion port and allows you to use a compct flash card and an IDE hard disk drive as high speed storage devices for the ZX Spectrum.  It works with all models of the ZX Spectrum (including the ZX Spectrum+ 128K, the +2, +2A, +2B and +3) as well as ZX Spectrum clones such as the Timex TC2048.

The interfaceis based on the original (and much loved) DivIDE design by Pavel Cymbal and incorporates several new features thanks to the work of Jarek Adamski and Jurek Dudek in Poland.

The unit is supplied complete with a link to The Quick Start Guide and full user guide manual. We have recently provided a guide on our RWAP Software Forums to using a 128K editor with the DivIDE Plus interface, and also copying software from a +3 disk drive to the compact flash card.

These units are also fitted with the latest GAL set to enable them to run EsxDOS - the latest DivIDE firmware.

The DivIDE Plus has the following benefits:

  • Ability to use both a CF Memory Card and an IDE hard disk to be used at the same time (there is both an IDE connector and a CF Memory Card Slot built in).  You can set a jumper to specify whether the CF Memory Card will be a master or a slave, or you can use two IDE hard disks on the same cable.
  • A through connector to allow you to connect other peripherals to the ZX Spectrum at the same time.
  • Works in 128K BASIC Mode on Spectrum 128K, Spectrum+2 and Spectrum+3 home computers, although this may need to be disabled for full compatibility with some 128K snapshots.
  • 128K Mode can be selected in software by using OUT 23, %001xxxxx.
  • Both the onboard ROM and RAM have been increased from 8K to 512K each - this will enable better firmware to be written for the DivIDE Plus (as can be seen by the release of ResiDOS).  The RAM is also battery backed as this is required by the ResiDOS firmware.  Battery backed memory allows ResiDOS to use ramdisks for storage and also allows FATware to remember the last file loaded and position in the disk browser since you last used the Spectrum.
  • The DivIDE Plus comes loaded with five firmwares: FATware, ResiDOS v2.00 (complete with FAT-16 support), +divIDE, DEMFIR and MDOS which you can switch between with the command OUT 23,x. 
  • You can also install ESXDOS and a firmware selector, which makes it easier to switch between the different firmwares on the DivIDE Plus.

Supplied fully tested and cased - shipping costs include tracking and insurance.

Questions and Answers

  • Question: How can I be easily sure if my rubber key ZX Spectrum 48K has the M1 Line? Is there any link, utube video or whatever where I can easily check it? Many thanks in advance.

    Posted by t***k (1) - 18/12/2013 19:53:20

    Answer: The only way of checking it is with an oscilloscope - see http://www.worldofspectrum.org/forums/showthread.php?t=40148

  • Question: Is there a size limit of compact flash card? Any particular brand favoured by the device?

    Posted by r***z (4) - 06/11/2013 11:23:39

    Answer: As the compact flash card needs to be formatted as FAT-16, its limit is limited to 2GB per partition. The best ones to look at are SANDISK cards (including the ultra ones) (beware of cheap fakes!) and Integral compact flash cards - see also http://www.rwapsoftware.co.uk/spectrum/spectrum_storage.html#faq7

  • Question: Will this work with the original 48k spectrum?

    Posted by r***z (4) - 05/11/2013 12:39:03

    Answer: Yes - it works with any ZX Spectrum, provided that the Z80 processor on your ZX Spectrum is not missing the M1 line (this also prevents other interfaces such as the Multiface from working)
