Summary MESS-specific 06942: x68000: Can't save game data to disk
Description When I play Sangokushi 3 (Romance of the Three Kingdoms) in MAME, It needs new data disk to save. To make data disk and insert to drive B:, It doesn't read and says the disk not ready message. but I eject B drive, MAME read the B drive and disk not ready message (written in Japanese). Of course, When I re-insert the empty disk and press 'R' key (to retry), the data finally saved.

It's same when I save the game data in data disk.

You can check the disk ramp to access the correct drive.

Try creating a data disk as an MFI or an MFM disk image, these image types are definitely writable by MAME.

The motor wasn't turned on when the enable was set and a disk loaded. Was my fault.
