µIEC/SD Beginner’s Tutorial – Part 2

Posted: July 23, 2012 in Commodore 64

On the first article, I went through the installation and first steps using the uIEC/SD. Now that we have everything setup, we can try some new commands.

First of all, to illustrate its use, let’s suppose we have a diskette (called SD Card) with the following structure:

UTILS             <DIR>
GAMES             <DIR>

If you have a file with the D64 extension, it is like a disk inside a disk. The D64 file is a disk image of some C64 diskette. To access its contents, like if you were inserting the disk in the 1541 drive, you have to issue the following command:

OPEN 15,8,15,"CD:MYDISK.D64":CLOSE15

Next, you can see the directory content using the command:

LOAD "$",8



The content of the disk will, of course, depend on the disk. When you are inside it, you can use any standard C64 disk command that you are probably used to, like load the default program:

LOAD "*",8

This is pretty much it. I hope it hel

This is pretty much it. I hope you can enjoy your “mini disquete” like I am.
