I am just discovering this flash cart. I haven't read through every post, so forgive me if this has already been answered, but does this work with the Atari 800, or just XL/XE? I assume the SDHC card would prevent the 800's lid from closing, but just thought I'd ask.
Only XL/XE ... even when you 'hack' the cart-door, it won't work on 800. Even when you install incognito board... it won't work on atari 800.
It's a rather cool device, as long as you are into gaming. For other tasks (like coding, or other more serious stuff) it is not the best choice though.
The flash-OS is a nice job, but does not come close to anything that is really useful.
The FAT32 loader Tucker wrote is great. The feature where the MyIDE 2 cart is able to run ROM files is great.
With a replacement OS (where you exchange your Atari OS rom with the MyIDE OS in ROM) this device is powerful and interesting.
When you want to keep your atari as original as possible, this is not the first choice.
IDE+ 2.0 is a better choice then, although that one is also not compatible with Atari 800.
