Hi all. I've recently bought on ebay an old Sigma Designs Maximizer card for my old IBM PC/XT. (It add 2 serial, a parallel and a game port, 384 kb ram and the clock calendar with battery). It works fine, but I don't have the software to set and retrieve clock and calendar. I tried using AST sixpak software but it doesnt'works. Please, can someone send me the right software for that board, or tell me where I can download it?

Did you try using MS-DOS's DATE and TIME commands?

Yes, of course, but it doesn't works. In orignal IBM PC and XT date and time are resetted to 01-01-1980 and 00:00 every time you boot up the system;this is 'cause, I think, clock and calendar are generated by software. I need the right device software, that every boot can read in the hardware clock of the MAXIMIZER and automatically update clock and calendar of the system.

Here's a link to jumper settings for the card. Hope you can find useful on the page. (Sometimes cards are called something else by the manufacturer but the drivers are the same.)

Thanks, that it's the card. But I still have the problem : without device software I can not use the clock and the calendar. I need the right software
