  1. Guys, appreciate a little help please. I recently picked up a Satandisk to use on my 1040. It came with a bundle of pre-installed games but I notice that the largest majority seem to crash out after the loading screen including Buggy Boy. Managed to get Academy, Arkanoid and Backlash all working. Is there anything you can do to get others to load or is there a particular reason some dont work? I believe the image I have on the SD card was one put together which was available to download. Any help / advice would be top banana. cheers Alan
  2. Chaps, appreciate a spot of help please. Is the CX853 16K memory cart compatible with the Atari 400 or is it only for the Atari 800? Thanks in advance.
  3. Thanks again for your kind help fella. I'll just take my chances I reckon. :-)
  4. Many thanks for your help fella. I was offered £40 including postage minus 'Beer Belly Burt', by time I'd posted that lot I'd be lucky to get about £26 left over.
  5. Chaps, as I'm fairly new to the Atari scene I've not got much of an idea regards prices. I've been made an offer from someone on Ebay for all of the games bar one of them and have a feeling it's quite a low price. I'd really appreciate if anyone could give me a ball park figure as to what these games might be worth. There are a couple of them on Ebay at the moment and one of them alone is asking for £59.99 BIN which seems stupidly high. Any help would be wicked. thanks Alan
  6. Currently selling a few titles on Ebay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/mamemeister/m.html?item=121217158855&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 If anyone is interested in anything and wanted to make me an offer (before any bids are recieved) just let m know please.
  7. I've just been using a utility called 'My Copy R' which formats the disk before copying from the SIO to the the 1050. TBH I've been comparing the disks that work with the ones that don't and I'm struggling to physically see any difference? The disks were used on a BBC Model B computer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Micro
  8. Russ - thanks so much for your reply, though it's disappointing to find out that most of the disks I have won't work it means I can stop wasting all my time trying to get them to work. Appreciate your help lads.
  9. I've kindly been given a big bundle of floppy disks by a mate who used them on his BBC computer. I've noticed when I'm trying to transfer ATR files across and the disk is being formatted, it gets halfway through (it clicks 40 times - 40 sectors I'm guessing) then comes up with a format error. The other disks I have that have worked all click 80 times (80 sectors?). Back in the day when I had my C64 I recall you could use pretty much any type of floppy disk. I'm guessing since they all do the same it's not just a corrupt disk but more to do with the type of disk. Is there any way to format these or is the 1050 drive quite specific about what type, make of floppy it uses? Thanks :-)
  10. Aah, just found this thread which contains a couple of utilities to make them up to 90k, I'll give this a go. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/168083-transferring-atr-images-to-actual-atari-disks-on-pc-drive/
  11. I've now successfully managed to transfer ATR files from the SIO2SD to my 1050 drive. One problem I've noticed though is a lot of the games I would like to put to floppy eg Bruce Lee, Dropzone etc the image size is less than 90k, some of them are 20-30k in size which although they run in the SIO2SD don't transfer to a floppy. Is there any work around or is there a collection online anywhere where the images are the proper 90 or 130k size?
  12. The courier company have now settled this so I was free to start a repair job. I discovered that it's only the bottom part of the case that was damaged, the top half is completely fine. With some clever use of tape, glue and bits of plastic I've managed to piece a lot of it together and it's now quite strurdy. Also discovered it came with 32k so runs a lot of games too. :-)
