|Summary||06484: rm380z: The COS 4.0 does not support cassette !|
The 380Z and 480Z Firmware Reference Manual ( http://vt100.net/rm/docs/pn10971.pdf ) on page 1.5:
L ... Load program from cassette (All versions except COS 4.0 and 4.2)"
So as this command does not exist on COS 4.0 there is no need for cassette!
|Steps To Reproduce||
Start the driver and type in the monitor command L.
It does not work as a such command not exist on the COS 4.0 system ! (Btw. It works on COS 3.4 system!)
So the cassette feature should be removed from the "rm380z" driver and left only in "rm380z34d" and "rm380z34e" drivers that support cassette.
|Affected Sets / Systems||rm380z|

Note that driver "rm380z34d" does not support the disk drive ! (commands B or X does not work but only command L)
So according to that the disk support should be removed from the "rm380z34d" driver !
rm380z ... supports the disk drive only !
rm380z34d ... supports the cassette only !
rm380z34e ... supports both, the disk drive and the cassette !
See in the same (above mentioned) manual on page 6.2 the Table 6.2 380Z interface I/O ports !

One more issue with "rm380z" driver:
On the video below at 1:34, after typing the letter B is written "Disc not ready", while in the emu is written " isc not ready" !? (Letter D is missing!)
And this is not the only problem with this driver! (IMHO, the driver needs complete overhaul)
