Hi Ken,

You can access the SRAM from any mappable page (right, left, keyhole), either as read/write or read-only.

There is programming information posted in the forum here:

http://www.atarimax....lashcart/forum/

There are also complete reference CF access routines that include media change detection, if you want to write CF aware software. These are the same routines that I use in the hardware diagnostic.

If you want your software to run under Sijmen's MyBIOS, you need to avoid the areas in use by MyBIOS. If you want to just use the raw hardware, you can follow the register specification and do whatever you want with the RAM.

Steve/all,

Is all that is needed is this and your own compact flash card? I am asking what a newbie (me) should purchase from Atari Max?

It doesn't look like I will need the Maxflash USB Cartridge Programmer to work with this -- I am surprised that all you need is one product. If so, great job guys.

You may need the usb programmer to update hardware cores, if ever needed, in the future
and to update , make your own workbooks

If you want to make your own custom workbooks to modify the boot menu, you can use the Maxflash Studio software, which is free. The USB programmer is an optional add-on that allows you to program the boot flash very quickly by just attaching the cartridge and pressing 'Synchronize'. There are other means to transfer the images to the Atari though, including using SIO2PC.

The only function that actually requires the USB programmer would be JTAG programming the hardware core, which you shouldn't ever have to do anyway, unless there is a major update or bug fix to the hardware. In that case I'd also offer a send-in programming service for no charge to people without the USB programmer.

The TLDR version is, you don't really need the USB programmer, but it can make things easier if you plan on doing customization of the boot menu.

Thanks Fernando and Steve. I did order a blue MyIDE2. I already have the Atari Max SIO2PC RS232 version, which is great.

Ordered one in blue. I must admit, though, as a non-programmer, the specific differences between MYIDE, compared to SIDE, grow a bit confusing over time, especially as each evolve. ;)

Consider one an Apple device, and another Microsoft - although I daren't speculate as to which is which. :D

On Myide 2 you can use a Side loader, so you that way you run xex and com files from a fat 32 partition,
the driver is used with pemission of the side folks

I'll hopefully be getting one of these soon. I'd thought about Side, but I'm not sure about current availability, and shipping costs, and support. Maybe they are great, but I like ordering from the U.S. and having the websites and forums that AtariMax has, and I've been quite satisfied with prior products and service, so I will stick with what I know. I've gotten APE/SIO2PC and AtariMax 32-n-1 OS, and Atarimax 512K Rambo compatible upgrade and used to own the original MyIDE and was very satisfied with products and support. This is an AWSOME MyIDE upgrade!
