SIO cables

Sun May 8, 2011 7:51 AM

I tried searching forums with no luck. I take it Cassette SIO cables do not work with the SIO2PC (card) cables?

Which cables do? only the old disk drive ones?

Atari 800 right Slot

Thu May 5, 2011 5:56 PM

This might be common knowledge but I wanted to ask. I read in an FAQ that there were only a few cartridges designed for this right slot in the 800? So it is basically a useless slot?

Price of 400's

Wed May 4, 2011 7:36 AM

A few years back I was looking to see how much 400's were going for on Ebay and it was like $10, I just saw two listings today for $79 and $179. More people becoming like me and wanting to get back into these or what?

I have also found Craigslist seems like a better place to find a lower price. I talked someone into selling an 800 and other stuff for $50 which included shipping, so for $30 got the lot of 410 games and books, he was asking $20 locally.

Game port loose pin

Mon May 2, 2011 10:10 PM

Thought I would get good advice here. I have a 400 with a loose #3 pin (slides in and out) on the first game port, the one that is always used. Joystick won't go left intermittently. I was thinking of switching it with the 4th one, at least the 4th position would not be used much.

Or would a standard MALE RIGHT ANGLE PCB MOUNT work? Suppliers? Maybe a totally different idea on how to fix?

Dos for atari 400/800

Sun May 1, 2011 9:38 AM

Hello, Getting back into this and I am wonder what DOS do you recommend using for an Atari 400 and 800?

Not clear when I read about DOS 1,2,3 etc or spartados and mydos.
