Z88 Software


Untitled Document

FLASH Card Software Information

There are two versions of software available for the 1M and only OZ 4.7.1 on the 512K Flash cards.

These are

  • OZ 3.00 with Eazylink 5.1 - Save files directly to the Flash card
  • OZ 4.7.1 - runs the latest version of OZ without modifying the Z88
The software supplied with OZ 3.0 includes Garry Lancaster's Forever compilation and the ZIP Utilities ROM. Some applications do not work correctly with OZ 4.7 as they were specifically designed to work with v3.00 and below. This is why there are two versions.

In 2010

Different array of RAM and EPROM packs

The 1M Flash card was redesigned to use the physically smaller size chip size allowing  either 1M Flash, 1M RAM - (low power) or 512K RAM/512K Flash cards to be offered using the same Printed Circuit Board.

In 2018 the 512K Flash chip used was discontinued, but software support for the different manufacture was written in OZ 4.7.1, allowing this configuration to be used.

Everything in just one Card
(if you wish)

In the past you would have put your RAM in Slot 1, any extra applications in ROM in Slot 2 leaving Slot 3 for the EPROM to save files.

Flashstore & Software Supplied

Flashstore (which is required to read and write files to the flash card) is a 16K Application. The minimum amount of space for applications on the flash card is 64K. Other useful Applications have been added to use up the spare space.

Planning to use 2 or more Flash cards

click here for more information.

See Application 2006 (now updated to 2012) for even MORE and up-to-date applications!

When upgrading to OZ 4.7.1, you leave the original OZ and RAM in the Z88. Plug in the 512K Flash/RAM or 1M Flash in Slot 1, do a HARD RESET and your Z88 will run OZ from Slot 1.

Using the 512K Flash/RAM Card allows you to run OZ, Additional Applications, Save files to the file area and have extra RAM all in the one card. This leaves 2 free slots for other cards.

FREE SPACE FOR FILES

The amount of space you have left for saving files is shown in the table below. It is dependant on the size of the card and whether OZ 4.2 or above is supplied.

OZ 3.00

OZ 4.7

1M 960K 768K
512K No longer Available
256K



Please read this complete section before specifying which version you want when ordering:-

OZ v4.2

After a period of around several years the Z88 development team bring you a long awaited new version of OZ, the Z88's operating system.

For full details of the features and changes for OZ, please follow this link to the wiki site.


Using the 1M or 512K flash card, no modifications need to be made to your existing Z88 Computer, just plug the flash card in slot 1, your memory card in slot 2, do a HARD RESET and you are off with the new version. Two additional applications are included. These are Flashstore and Eazylink (just the Z88 application. The PC program still needs to be purchased if required).

For further details about this on-going development just give us a call for a chat!

We will supply either version for no extra charge.
Providing you have a Z88 with at least 256K of memory and a flash card you can download and install it yourself. Click here to go to 
RomUpdate.

There are a number of applications that will not run under OZ 4.2 or above. These are all of RANGER applications and those that patch directly into OZ 3.0.
These applications are marked with
does not run with OZ 4.2

1M Flash EPROM
[Original 1M INTEL Flash Card] Replaces lots of EPROMs
Works like a charm! I am very impressed - I love the Z88 and with 1 MB to play with as well as easy erasing, I am very happy. I now have a problem though - what to do with my old EPROM!

Sean Kelly 28-08-2000

Just one of the comments from our users about the 1M Flash Card pack when it just came out in 1997 (For more comments - see the Reviews section).

This is a high-capacity low priced storage card that fits either into any slot on the Z88. Just like the old EPROM packs it does not lose its data when it is removed or if power is lost from the Z88.

There are two versions of the flash card available.

1. OZ 3.00 Version - which is used with the standard Z88 with Eazylink 5.1
2. OZ 4.7.1 Version - which has the same applications as above and OZ 4.7.1.

The highlighted applications mark the range supplied on the Z88 with each version of OZ.

NOTE: References to OZ 4.3 should now be OZ 4.7.

OZ 4.5 and Eazylink 5.2.2
OZ 4.5 and above or Eazylink 5.2.2 Upgrade



These updates attract an extra cost. Users may return their Flash cards with their remittance and postage (currently £30 inc VAT).


NOTE: Files on an INTEL Flash Card can not be updated

Save or Fetch files directly to the Flash card with this Eazylink upgrade.
Avoid using RAM space just as a bridge between the two.

The file areas look like RAM and are labeled :EPR.1, :EPR.2 and :EPR.3 depending which slot is used.
