Hi,

I have an Atari 800XL and I am looking for a flash cart that can handle both cartridge games and floppy based ones.

I found the Side2 here: http://www.lotharek....duct.php?pid=68

But it seems kinda small flash size - 256K?  especially compared to the Ultimate SD Cart - which seems to only support cartridge images.

 

As someone completely new to the Atari scene - which is more prevalent - cartridge or disk based software?

If you haven't already done it, please read first post.
Side2 is a Compact flash card based cartridge, so it has no storage limits.
Together with U1MB internal memory expansion, Side2 loads all existing software; unfortunately that solution needs some soldering inside the machine.
Other solutions have pro and cons.
For example, SIO2SD is a good solution, but you cannot load games with more than 64KB unless you have a memory expansion.
