Received the Sio2SD + SD-card. Plugged it into the Sioport, turn on 800XL (tried with and without Option). After a short time I get a screen with "AHT", "Alley Cat".

 

But how do I get the File selector??????

 

I've checked instructions on Lothareks site (about K1, ....) but either do not understand them correctly or whatever. Looked at Youtube movies they all show file selector.

 

Please a step by step "How To".

Tried that myriad times.  After a short while I see "cfg tool mode" in display but when I then press K2 I never get to see the text "every startup". Pressing K2 who's a text like "127840.80 ($00)". Then after I am lost.

 

(for the time being all I want is to select thru file selector and nothing further).

 

The SD-card contains the files sio2sd.cfg, sio2sd.xex and folder Atari.

The trick clearly is to press "Shift" on the Sio2SD at start. So solved that. Thanks.

 

The "High speed Sio support" is installed. How can I ee whether this is active because I have the feeling loading is very slow.

Look here for instructions:

 

https://retrogamesul...6/atari-sio2sd/

Those 2017 instructions seem based on my guide online for years: http://www.santelloc...2sd.htm#english

For example

 

ON-SCREEN LOADER INSTRUCTIONS (v3.5)

ARROWS/JOYSTICK select file .xex or disk image .atr

KEYS 1-8 mount selected file/image into drives 1-8

CTRL+T lets you toggle between real drives / virtual drives

ESC climb directory tree

X (long press) restart computer with selected images

RETURN/FIRE enter directory/load file/disk image

 

Loader Instructions (v3.5):

ARROWS/JOYSTICK: select directory/file (.xex) or disk image (.atr)

RETURN/FIRE: enter directory/load file/disk image

KEYS 1-8: mount selected file/image into drives 1-8

ESC: go back through the directory tree.

X: (long press) restart computer with selected image(s).

CTRL+T: lets you toggle between real drives / virtual drives

 

Anyway, the important thing is that they can help people use SIO2SD.
