Sale or Trade: Sio2SD <-> Uno/Multicart

Mon Mar 19, 2018 4:32 AM

I thought I had really thinking thought it up well and bought the Sio2SD. Now, after few weeks, of using this device I must come to the conclusion that it was not the right choice to make.I don't want to go into details but suffice to say that the problem is not caused by the device but solely by my person. I find it too much 'haggling". All I wanted is put all my .rom files on some device and then play them straight away. No strings attached.


So I've come to he conclusion I should have bought the Unocart, It suits more my way of how I want to use the Atari. That is "press a few buttons and hoppa play a game". Nothing more, nothing fancy.



So I came up with the idea to trade the Sio2SD for a Unocart or Multicart. Anyone interested? Alternatively I will sell the Sio2sd.



Sio2SD, Help desperately needed.

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".



Atari 800XL; Sio2SD or Uno Cart

Thu Feb 22, 2018 9:20 PM

I am wondering what the smart thing to do is.


Both have the advantage that I can prepare and put everything on my Mac on a SD-Card.

Uno Cart will have (I suppose) the fastest loading times.

Uno Cart also does Rom/Bin, Sio2SD not.

Both acceptable priced.


The 800XL will mainly be used for gaming and I do not plan the "Pokey Divisor 0" upgrade since I do not want to do any soldering.


What's best to buy or is there an even better solution for (luxury problem many games, fast loading, ease of handling.
