@CHIP-RTOS C Library - External Disk API


Header File:         #include <EXTDISK.H>

Here is the CLIB API for an external disk B: and D: drive.   This interface allows you to add an external B: or D: drive.   This drive must be block (sector) oriented.   Each sector should be 512 bytes long.   The application must provide a software interrupt 0xB1 function for drive B: or 0xB2 for drive D: to read and write these sectors on this drive.

On SC1x systems, the maximum disk size is about 2 Gigabytes.   (This limitation is due to the FAT16 disk format used on SC1x systems.)   SC1x systems support only drive B:

The SC1x3/SC2x systems support FAT32 format. The maximum disk size on SC1x3/SC2x systems is about 8 Terabytes.   The maximum file size is 2**32 bytes minus one cluster (=32 kbyte), which is about 4 Gigabyte.   SC1x3/SC2x systems support drive B: and drive D:.
