Recently I bought a LPE 4MB V3 mapper. Because this mapper is already mentioned in this topic, i have a question.
Firstly the mapper wil correctly show the total amount of memory in my nms8245, and even at the startup screen of my TurboR st (512kb internal), even in a primairy cart. slot (in my digital KC slotexpander the total amount of memory is'nt shown at startup!) . Now I want to make use of the mapper primairly for copying/moving files on/to my CF or diskdrive.
Does somebody know a program dat will allocate the mapper memory correctly (or at least a part of it) to use it, for example, as a memory buffer to swap files etc. in DOS2?
I've tried BK with memman (my oldtime favorite), but it did not allocate any mapper memory at all.
thanx in advance

when using floppy disk you can take advantage of big buffer because you dont have to wait for head seek of the floppy between files ,
but on flash devices seek is 0 delay so not sure you will have gain when using CF , disk yes .

Hi Leo,
Thank you for your additional info. But i'm also still looking for a utility or program that recognize the amount of memory of the mapper in the right way.

@Robby
In http://msx.deneb.nl/page3.HTM you can download the SW MEMTR.COM de Ramones. This SW can put as main RAM your external RAM.

Hi leonardo. Thank you for the link. Within dos1 (on my turbo-r/st/512internal memory) everything seems to be fine, it says:
Mem mappers found: 2
Mem mapper slot: 1 size -> 4096kb
Mem mapper slot:3-0 size -> 0512 kb
---> change main mem to : mem mapper slot1 size=>4096k
Finished returning to OS

However I dont get it working / allocating with dos2 (together with slot expander and CF). It says: dos 2.xx not supported. According to your site, it must work together with dos2?
My turbo-r displays 4096 kb main ram while booting, and pressing backspace (BS). I have a LPE 4MB V3 mapper inserted in cart slot1. Am I doing something wrong?
