In Topic: mystery part from 1050 drive

Tue Apr 3, 2018 5:32 PM

Actually, there were three items rattling around inside the case when I opened it.


#1 - the mystery angled piece


#2 - the sliced piece of rubber bumper


#3 - a lock washer from one of the two screws holding the heat sink.


One of the heat sink screws was merely loose - but still had the nut and washer, the other screw had lost its nut - but since it butts against the bottom of the case, it didn't go anywhere.

I looked everywhere and couldn't find the missing nut.  Definitely didn't lodge itself in the floppy drive mechanicals.

In Topic: Wiring up the latest Lotharek SIO2SD

Lotharek actually emailed me this picture yesterday - I wondered where it came from.


Even w/out translating from Polish - this picture is all I needed.


It would be nice if future runs of the board had pin 1 indicated though...

Sometimes the best answers are the simplest ones, I'll send him an email and cross my fingers...



In Topic: Please help with connecting SIO2SD v1.3 to real floppy drives

Tue Mar 27, 2018 11:01 AM




I recently purchased v1.3 SIO2SD with loader software v3.5 from Lotharek and need help setting up and operating (and perhaps even modifying) the SIO2SD in trying to connect it to a real Atari floppy drive.  




Did you buy just the unit - or one with half an SIO cable?

I recently bought just the unit - and can't figure out how to wire it up to my SIO plug, since the green terminal header on the SIO2SD is completely void of any markings.

No indication of which pin is pin 1 etc...
