98218A Disc ROM for 9831A

98x5 Computers Selection:

Name: 98218A Mass Storage ROM for 9831A
Product Number: 98218A
Introduced: 1977
Division: Calculator Products
Original Price: Unknown
Catalog Reference: Does not appear


The 98218A is required for the 9831A to perform disc operations with a 9885M or 9895A disc drive.

Collector's Notes:

Unfortunately, the 98218A alone is not enough to initialize discs using the 9831A. The 9885 utility disc 09885-10014 contains the BIN INIT (required to initialize discs) and other utilities required to perform disc operations. Fortunately, discs initialized (in 9825/45 mode) with an HPL-version 200 Series computer will work with a 9831A. See the product documentation on the 9831A for instructions on using the 98218A.
