We have a SSD-3500 thats used in an educational setting and sparing you all of the details, its been rendered inoperative because of what Id say is an extremely poor design decision of keeping the backup data which is required for the machine to work in volatile memory which was lost when the Snaphat Timekeeper battery on the CPU board died. On the SSD-5500, there is a way to copy the backup data from the hdd to the 3 ¼ drive by simply setting a jumper switch but unfortunately the SSD-3500 does not have this option. The only way to do this is through the menus but without a backup data disk, the machine is stuck in an endless cycle on the Auto Test mode.
So left with what we believe are no options, I thought Id ask here if anyone could possibly make me a backup data disk and send me a copy. As its a dos based disk, Id think it could be copied on any windows PC with a 3 ¼ or MO disk or if thats not feasible, send me the disk itself.
As far as the system I have, this is the info on the hard drive
OS 01-1.1.0 - (operating system ? )
Database 00-3.0.0 (06 Nov)
Serial # - 36003 / 334
Sorry, but had to ask.
