first off i thought this was a problem with my mediator board in my A4000. But i've been having so many issues with the mediator, i've decided to pull the mediator card out completely and put the original Zorro backplane daughter board back in.
anyway. setup as follows.
A4000, 3.1roms, buster Rev11, normal A4000 Zorro busboard installed
A3640 040 cpu
16meg ram on board
Cybervision64/3D in the bottom slot
Xsurf-100 in the 2nd from top slot.
I've not tried a different slot yet, i spent so much time faffing with the mediator last night before deciding to pull it out completely that i haven't really had time to play properly.
so. the xsurf-100 runs absolutely fine in Z3 mode with OS3.9 and a paid version of Roadshow.
place the RapidRoad card on the board, the light comes on as normal, machine boots fine, start up Trident and it complains that some things couldn't start up something about the "hardware enumerator wasn't talking" if i recall (in the mediator, Trident would just crash at this point).
switch the Xsurf-100 to Zorro2 mode, and everything is absolutely fine - same on the mediator.
I also have an A3000 with almost the exact same config, except it has a CyberstormMK3/060+128meg for CPU, a Zorram256, and it's Xsurf-100+rapidroad setup runs fine in Zorro3 mode. same workbench/OS/IP Stack setup. So i'm a little puzzled...
i don't care too much, just i had to dump 1.4gig of video from a USB stick and i had to leave it to copy overnight. It's just annoying knowing the potential is there for higher data rates. Would mean i could run stuff direct from USB rather than having to copy it to local disk first.... i dunno... any thoughts or ideas most welcome
