CARD_ERROR ($C0046E)

The CARD_ERROR system ROM call can automatically handle some errors depending on the CARD call command and error code.

Most of the time this call will only display a message on screen (using MESS_OUT), but it can also automatically format the memory card if needed. (Confirmation is required on home systems, it is done silently on MVS).

List of command/error combinations that CARD_ERROR can handle
