  1. No worries, and yeah, thought about that later, that a permanent fix might not be where you were heading. No experience myself, with a sd2iec, but figured more knowledge than me would chime in, and get you set up, and look...it happened! Glad to see!
  2. I think it might be mentioned in the owners manual, if you have access to that, but here's an on-line mention of how to do it: http://www.atarimagazines.com/compute/issue50/221_2_READERS_FEEDBACK_Commodore_Disk_Drive_Device_Number_Update.php
  3. Quick follow up. Seems it's a family member running the business now, as (according to some folks on other forums), Dean7878 has had some serious health issues as of late, so there's some new info to use as you like.
  4. Just a head up that there's a new user that's just begun posting on the Vic 20 Denial forums (StacyB), who is selling Vic-20 keys, springs etc, and they have a link to their website, which sells all sorts of other 8 bit parts, and that site is....http://www.80svc.com. Things that make you go...hmmmmm.
  5. No problem at all. Tons of great info on that site.
  6. Ah, found some better info with hows and whys here, along with a bunch of other goodies: http://www.the-nextlevel.com/odyssey2/faq/essentials/#50, About 3/4 down the page: How can I replace my Odyssey²'s power supply? Luckily, you don't need an original Odyssey² power supply to run your console. Most electronics stores sell adjustable power supplies that you can use. Odyssey²'s power supply requirements are: 12v AC 600mA. However, Odyssey² consoles contain an internal bridge rectifier and 5v regulator, which means that it should be safe to use supplies that don't exactly match these specifications. It should be safe to use a power supply that provides anywhere from 9V to about 14V, AC or DC. Many Odyssey² players use power supplies from other, more common consoles. A standard 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) power supply can be used on most Odyssey² consoles, just not the early models. If your Odyssey² has a round, female power port with a thin metal peg in the middle, it's compatible with an NES supply. If your console's power port is female, but smaller and lacking the metal peg, try an Atari 2600 supply. It should work! 22 Guess that explains why my NES adapter works...learn something new everyday it seems
  7. Sorry, guess I didn't really answer your question there. Looking at the NES adapter, and yes, it is AC.: Input is AC 120V 80HZ 17W, and Output is AC 9V 1.8A (reading that right off the adapter itself). My O2 is the same as yours, with the hard wired controllers. Does it say DC somewhere on your system?
  8. I've been using an original NES power supply with mine for a few years now, without any issues. No modifications required.
  9. Picked up some CV homebrews from Twoquickcapri, and couldn't be happier with the transaction! Fast shipping, well packed, and everything in mint condition! Great to deal with!
  10. Just in case you didn't see this in the marketplace yet Tempest http://atariage.com/forums/topic/247418-trs-80-model-3-model-4-and-more/
  11. You might want to PM Tempest, I know he's been looking for a Model III or 4 for quite some time now.
  12. Remember playing David's Midnight Magic, and Night Mission a lot..they were fun. Never got into the Pinball Construction Set (although, I would probably have more patience these days to play around with it).
