To answer Boisy's question, I'm actually running RGB-DOS.
To answer your questions Mark, actually I was getting a lot of OB Errors
while the Verify was switched on. I don't recall ever seeing that error
before, I had to look it up in the manual to find out what it was. But in
spite of the error, I was able to perform the backup procedures you
As far as the possibility of RAM problems go, wouldn't there be other
symptoms? I haven't noticed any other odd behavior from my Coco. All my
other games work fine. Until I see some additional problems popping up
that could be attributed to RAM problems, I'm not really going to worry
I've spent too much time on this problem already. Whatever the nature of
the problem is, it's only affecting my ability to play one game
(Tutankamen) directly from the hard drive. I don't even play the game
that often. And if I do want to play it, I can still play it from a
floppy, which is easy enough to do. All my other games work just fine.
I'm not going to worry about this anymore.
Thank you very much everyone for your help. I appreciate it.
