I was able to find an Virtual Hard Drive image file and mount it under TRS-80 Color Computer emulation but I have long ago forgotten how to access the harddrive.

Anyone give me some pointers on how to switch to the hard drive? Do you switch like a drive number and use the "save" & laod (or loadm) commands like a floppy?

Do you want to use the virtual hard disk with RSDOS, RGBDOS, or OS-9?

RSDOS is what I would prefer. Perhaps OS-9 as well.

RGBDOS is a patch for RSDOS to allow the use of virtual hard drives. I believe it was the only patch of it's kind ever created for RSDOS.

See: http://home.att.net/~robert.gault/Coco/Downloads/Downloads.htm for RGBDOS for emulation.

For OS-9 use the emudsk.dr driver and /h0 descriptor found in Jeff Vavasour's CoCo 3 emulator package.

Just continue this thread if you have any further questions.
