Line 38: Line 38:
 There is one glaring bug in RAM Disk, which I've come across and that is, it isn't always successful at saving programs from RAM to the floppy disk drive. ​ When ever I've tried it, it ends in a ''?​SYNTAX ERROR''​. ​ Oddly, it doesn'​t necessarily mean that the program didn't get saved, but there are times when it fails to do so.  Luckily, there is a work around. ​ All you need to do is "​load"​ the program from the RAM Disk into active memory and then use the regular ''​SAVE"​program",​8''​ command to save it to floppy disk. There is one glaring bug in RAM Disk, which I've come across and that is, it isn't always successful at saving programs from RAM to the floppy disk drive. ​ When ever I've tried it, it ends in a ''?​SYNTAX ERROR''​. ​ Oddly, it doesn'​t necessarily mean that the program didn't get saved, but there are times when it fails to do so.  Luckily, there is a work around. ​ All you need to do is "​load"​ the program from the RAM Disk into active memory and then use the regular ''​SAVE"​program",​8''​ command to save it to floppy disk.
  
-So, in the right context, RAM Disk can be a helpful utility. ​ But, outside of that, it's more of an interesting proof of concept. ​ And it was unique programs like this, which made Loadstar such a great asset and learning tool for a Commodore computer owner.+So, in the right context, RAM Disk can be a helpful utility. ​ But, outside of that, it's more of an interesting proof of concept. ​ And it was unique programs like this, which made Loadstar such a great asset and learning tool for a Commodore computer owner, back in the day.
