  1. here is the boards but i dont have the schematic and as you can see the second stick is not attached and it appears as though my wiring is wrong for the second stick but the first stick works great
  2. I recently tested 4 1050's on 1 foot cables between them and the 1st happy drive was fast at transfer. the other three stock drives saw moderate loss of transfer speed down the chain and drive 4 was half the speed of drive 2. So cable length does effect transfer speed as all of these drives were set to 188 RPM. The happy drive is just faster because it is Happy. drive 4 had effectively 9 ft of cable... 3 ft thru disk drives and a standard length sio to computer. Cheers! Buy Doge!
  3. I have 2 850's and since I will never play with one again I would be willing to part with the lesser one. probably browned, but a proper paint would spiff it up. not sure about dings but you would get a second 850. Do you do Dogecoin?
  4. I bid on the most beautiful 1200XL in my life! it hit 850$ and i missed the bid by 99 cents. You just have to WANT it!
  5. Well.... It works.. but the device mangler still doesn't recognize it. But it does work. I was frieking out because the device mangler didn't recognize. I also put it on a 4 port hub and its playing nice now. But I still have a unrecognized descriptor in device mangler. When I was running 64bit win 7 I did get the Atarimax driver info but now I don't. restarted APE and it said USB mode was good. Got a ration about virtual and serial ports but last line was that APE was ready. loaded an ATR and hit restart on computer and it loaded. Thank you for your support!
  6. I have an Atarimax APE and I cannot seem to find drivers for the unit for Windows 10. The drivers on the disk are 64bit, however Win 10 doesn't recognize the device. I can never seem to get a response to be registered on their forum but it don't matter as the drivers dont seem to exist for Win 10 on the forum. Has anyone got the APE to work in windows 10? Is there a way to force Win 10 to use the drivers from a different platform? say win 7 64bit? Beuller...Beuller...Bueller
  7. A DA input card would be awesome! 8 analog and 4 digital would turn an Atari into a PLC. Voyager 1 and 2 left with an 8 bit, the Shuttle left with the first laptop but it was triple redundant and as well the had a thing called majority rules. pretty frieking cool!
  8. Yea BUT.. What the hell would you plug into the 1090? Where are you gonna find those cards? Dont they have to be 8-bit communication? Just asking..
  9. Well I resurrected a 1050 Happy from numerous drives and attempts as well as a bad power supply which was problematic to say the least. However, when I run Happy Software Suite 6.6 it states that no happy drives are present. It works great as a disk drive and all the lights work with the switches. I am using Sdrivemax to load the ATR file and it loads but with no access to the physical floppy disk 1. Do I need to send my ATR to a floppy? How would I do that? Do I need to plug in my SIO2PC USB from Atarimax to read disk speeds. I did use that to set the RPM on my disk drives but that was prior to using the 1088XLD. OR Spartados! Any 1050 GODS out there please respond... Douglas
  10. Well I have completed the OS mod chip swap by using 28 pin sockets and they drop right in. Modding a 1200XL for a myIDE upgrade, or was it a 512k upgrade i forget. I used Component carrier sips for the 0 ohm resisters which would make it a little easier if you need to revert back to original. And you can just put the original chips back in the correct pin sockets. Peace fellow 1200xl dude! Douglas albeit I was a couple of drinks into it but here are my pics of the bare 1200XL MB that I took. motherboard.zip
  11. "It's working! It's working!!!! Just a few images.. THANK YOU Mytek, McRorie, FJC, Simius and et al. Now I just gotta figure out how to use the darn thing
  12. THANK YOU.. it worked and I am now the proud owner of one insanely sharp video mod! BRILLIANT!
  13. I am truly blown away by this mod! My VBXE never worked. My original Sophia-C never worked. My GBS8200 WITH RGB2VGA for XLD worked but always required resetting and it was in PAL color scheme. I have upgraded a 1200XL to Super Video ver 2 and that was very clean, however this screen is so sharp I might cut my fingers tracing a line on the monitor! Absolutely BRILLIANT Simius!
