  1. Turns out it was the SD card I was using, but don't understand why... The only clue I get that a card is going to work properly is a dialogue box pops up in Drimg before writing that says "Looks like PC disk".
  2. A national coin shortage...


    I'm visualizing the auction portion of the game M.U.L.E. ... little merchants with their arms flailing about as they run up the screen pushing the dotted line higher and higher ... bankers at the top not budging ... ding ding time's up! No coins sold!

      M.U.L.E. did someone say, M.U.L.E. :)

      I have bags and bags full of coins.  But I am not paying 10% to have them counted.

  3. Yes, I tried the reset trick, the red led flashes once and no go. Still tries to boot from floppy. Also, I tried a Satandisk and it didn't work either. I'll try digging out an Atari ST with an older TOS and see what happens.
  4. Has anyone gotten this to work? Tried this and can't get either of the Ultrasatans I have to recognize or boot it. The Ultrasatans are working fine with other images I've written to 1gb SD cards. Tried two different 4mb 1040st's with TOS 1.04. I used the Drimg v1.35 utility to write the .img file to a 2gb SD card. I'm using Win XP but tried the ZEROS.IMG trick also... Windows will see the first 30mb partition on the 2gb SD card, and can see the remaining unmounted 9 partitions in Disk Management. It also sees the unallocated space. Drimg can see the files on any partition using the "View Files" option.
  5. Surveillance capitalism. It's practically the only way any tech company makes money now. Hey wiretap! Give me a recipe for pancakes!
  6. I've been driving by this for a while and finally stopped to have a look. Unfortunately, they're closed. It's not an essential business...
  7. Microsoft monetizing everything in Windows.
  8. Fortunately, we have all the time in the world right now to wait for a command to complete.
  9. Interesting. I get the long pause too when using a 2gb CF card in 8088 PC's.
  10. Seems to work just fine in Windows XP, though.
  11. Thanks for doing this, I was late to the scan party as well.
  12. Didn't the ATX format originate with Atarimax's APE software? Pretty sure there's an option to write back to a real 1050.
