Saving cassette files on Atari 8-bit emulator

Thu Jun 19, 2014 11:32 AM

Would there be any possible way to save files in cassette format on any Atari 8-bit computer emulator?  I looked at many various emulators such as Altirra, A8E, Atari800win plus, etc, and I can't seem to find any option on any of those for what I'm trying to do.

Atari 410 Program Recorder Repair Service

Fri Jun 13, 2014 9:51 AM

I have an Atari 410 that is probably in need of new motor to run the mechanics. I did check to see if any of the bands had come loose but they were all in place. There does seem to be power going into the unit because it sends a garbled signal to my XE computer but the mechanics simply do not move to run the tape.

Atari 2600 4-switch fuzzy/snowy picture

Wed Mar 26, 2014 12:30 PM

I have an Atari 2600 Darth Vader 4-switch model that's giving me a fuzzy picture. I'm using a gold Radioshack RCA F to coaxial M... Yes I have tried replacing the cable because it seemed quite obvious when I moved the wire the static patterns changed... However I clearly tried using a shielded RCA cable and no improvement; which was weird because the cable I used never gave me a crystal clear picture on my Atari XEGS... Then I tried the 2600 cable on the XE as well to see if it really was the problem... It gave a perfect picture on the console as well... Another thing would be when I plug in a controller into the 2600 and move it around, the static patterns change as well... Any diagnosis?

Atari Floppy Drive to PC?

Mon Mar 17, 2014 10:39 AM

I know this is such a stretch but would there be any possible way to connect my Atari XF551 floppy disk drive to my Windows XP computer? I'd like to transfer Atari files to and from my PC.



I really can't get an internal 5 1/4 floppy drive for the XP because they are just too pricey.
