  1. Trying to keep up with Google is a full time job. I hope people can appreciate that. I have just given out APKs in the past myself because of this!
  2. I have been developing BT communication software here again lately and thought about SIO2BT. I didn't know it existed yet. I did a Google search, and here it is. I wondered if the route you chose could work. I figured that it might, but be unstable. Very impressive and I like how people jumped on-board! I love seeing this stuff still being created. The Mr. Atari config utility is a great idea too. I have a couple HC05s lying around, and am in the middle of getting an app out to Beta, but I am going to take a break and try this out! I thought about this a couple of years ago when I wrote my first Android app that dealt with BT, but never got around to it. Fun stuff!
  3. Fun stuff. Building an SD device for the Atari is what got me turned onto Arduino. Have fun!!
  4. Correct. Just plug your Arduino into a usb port. No need to use a programmer. When you re-program your arduino using their GUI software, it basically just calls this command as a last step after compiling. This is nothing special. It is just a "behind the scenes" thing that happens for everyone using an Arduino.
  5. Oh and....when you download the .docx file, you can just copy the hex and paste it into notepad.
  6. I do not overwrite the stock bootloader. Only the standard address space is touched. I have only used the utilities that come with the Arduino software to write to the Arduino chip. Again, you are not overwriting the bootloader and you want to use a chip that has the stock bootloader on it, or it will not work. I really am using an Arduino chip. I hope this makes sense.
  7. Thank you Bluemax2007. There is no sketch file that you need to compile. You must use the command line utilities to write the .hex file to your Arduino. I have already compiled it for you. You just need to download it from my wordpress site and remove the .docx extension from the file. The command line will be something similar to: avrdude -V -F -C avrdude.conf -p m328p -c stk500v1 -P COM3 -b 57600 -U flash:w:sio2microsd.hex -v I hope this helps. Don
  8. OK. Hope you are able to get your problem solved.
  9. I would think it would work with the Uno, but I am not sure if anyone as tried. I always recommend you download the version I compiled it on and upload it to your board with the command-line utilities. Feel free to email me, visit my page, or post on my thread. To be respectful, I don't want to hijack this thread.
  10. If the Sdrive is the only thing not working, it probably would be software. I had to fiddle around with my SDrive code quite a bit to get it right. If you don't have a problem wiring it up, you could always program one of your Arduinos with my software while you wait for Farb. It might help you determine if it is hardware or software.
  11. Hello Dan, You can remove any of the drives from the chain by using the unload image option in SIO2MicroSD. This will allow you to use any combination of old school physical, with my device. In Game Mode, you will not be able to do this as I am forcing D1: to be used. That was just to make it easy for kids or people who did not know how to navigate through the menus. If you do not have an image loaded for a drive, my code bypasses the requests to that drive completely. This is why I created the unload option. I probably need to clarify that in my documentation, if I haven't. It has been a while since I have read it. Unless something broke somewhere, this was working, as I was regularly doing this. Please let me know if there is an issue. I appreciate the feedback!! Don
  12. Cool stuff! Let me know what you find out and I will see what I can do. It has been awhile, but it is always fun to get back into it. I have many commands that just don't do anything. I might just have to give it an OK response of some sort.
  13. Hello Dan, I hadn't touched it in some time, but when someone told me they found a bug, I wanted to get it fixed. It took a few years for the first bug to be reported. I do not remember trying to copy from my device back to real floppy disks. I did try it the other way around, as I was wanting to try and get some of my old BBS data off those old floppies. I did not have a problem with that. If it was a hardware issue, it would probably not work at all, or be very inconsistent. If you are seeing a consistent problem at a certain point, it could be a bug in my software. If you could give me as much detail as possible, maybe I can re-create it and see. I didn't dig ultra deep into the status and percom portions, and may have to revisit that. BTW, Can I assume the bug reporter was electrotrains??? Don
  14. It says his dad gave it to him. Now...I tried giving my son my 130XE and even had him watch/help me design the SIO2MicroSD starting with my first LCD hello Ryan program. He at least appreciates old 8 bit music, but....no interest in it otherwise. Who knows though! hahahahahhaa
