Has Anyone use OTLA ? its a great utility, I can convert a tap or txt file to a wav file that has been speeded up, I now load up Manic Minor from my MP3 player in 40 seconds!

That's awesome. Never done it myself, yet anyway.

I used otla and this method of loading games before I got my DivIDE. It was why I got the DivIDE though. On the 48k it wasn't as bad, but I found it very unreliable on my +2. I only ever got about 10 games working.

I can see why you went for one too, but this will have to do for now.

Did you order one with a CF card of SD? and does your have Xdos?
