trs80m3 driver

The driver with selected Level 2 Rev. B/C bios is not working right ?

Someone is able to load and start any disk with Level 1 or Level 2 Network III bios ?

are there multiple files in the zip file? also try to unzip and then rezip the image, sometimes it's a non-standard zipfile image to create problems

No, the zipped file content only ONE .dsk file.
Example: cpm30a.dsk to cpm30a.zip
Also I rezipped the file several times.
If the zipped file is wrong, the disk will not boot.
It is booting but later come the error.

it's been a long time since I've seen a similar problem... zip support in MESS is usually very stable. not sure about the way disks are handled by the driver: probably Curt may give more info/advices

Notice the error is a write protect error - MESS is not capable of writing to disks inside of zip archives (because it would have to re-zip them every time) so zipped disks behave like write-protected disks. If the emulated computer doesn't like write-protected disks for whatever reason, then you'll just have to use unzipped images. (You might want to keep unmodified backups somewhere though.)

This can be the reason. Thank you for the Info !
