Thanks for your hints, they helped a lot...
as far as i now understood the way the old firmware probably chose was
to hook the disc handler 13h which would mean that it has to emulate a
real block device, is that correct?
Where do i find the old firmware, in case i want to restore the original
contents of the flash?
is that in DOC52.EXB in the ttfs_5.1.2 package from m-systems?

Thanks for your help!
