Hello All!

I recently purchased a P/E box on e-bay with a single
drive and disk controller for my recently acqired
ti-99/4a AND ti-99/4 consoles (yes 99/4!) but could
not get any floppy disks to run on either consoles,
even ti program (phdxxxx) disks. All I get is an load
error code 16 (sometimes 56 or 57) message and I dont
know what this means since I dont have any documentation
other than the TI disk manuals which I followed very
carefully. Assuming the disks are ok (I thik its
unlikely that all 5 of my TI program disks would be bad)
I am wondering if the problem is in the disk drive,
disk controller card, P/E box or mabye even the flex
cable. BTW the disk drive and controller card both
light up when the run command is issued and the drive
does spin at which point I get an error mesage which
I dont know the code for. Any help would be appreciated

Thanks! Rich Moellering
