  1. Ah...Crab! Now my Atari 800XL powers up but screen goes blank, even the SIO2SD is unplugged. :sad: LOL! Another problem!
  2. Thanks. That's exactly what I have, although the Sio2Sd.cfg file is created after the first time configuring all the options. I tried your SIO2SD.ZIP and something interesting happens. 1) My TV goes blank. There is no Atari "READY" BASIC prompt. 2) The LCD of the SIO2SD displays the below. D1: - OFF /Games I'll check my original Atari SIO cable, which I bought from eBay. It could be bad. I know for sure there is a +5V going to the SIO2SD board from the Atari. Otherwise, I wouldn't be seeing the LCD being on.
  3. I followed the above link to the letter. And the sio2sd.xex does *not* get loaded. Instead, the config menu is started every time the computer is started. So, I choose "config mode" to start only if "K4+shift" held down when starting the computer. That does not get me into config mode, which is expected; however, the sio2sd.xex again is NOT loaded. My Atari 800XL starts up with the "READY" BASIC prompt. Btw, I set "Device ID:" to ZERO. It does not matter if "Top Drive:" is set to ON or OFF. Same problem, the sio2sd.xex is not loaded into the Atari 800XL. My LCD displays: D1: MULE.ATR International Karate In my "ATARI" folder of the SD card, I have the MULE.ATR and "International Karate.ATR" files. I've been attempting to choose D1 to load mule automatically? My firmware Version is 3.1RC2. I am just lost on this! ATARI SIO2SD INSTRUCTIONS / TIPS SETUP (firmware v3.1) Format an SD card (FAT 12, 16 or 32 file systems) Download sio2sd.zip , extract sio2sd.xex and copy it to SD card Make a folder named Atari Put into that folder Insert SD card into SIO2SD Turn on computer On SIO2SD double press SHIFT button (gray button on SIO2SD Micro / PC Combo) "CFG TOOL mode" will appear on the LCD display Press K1 button (Drive button on SIO2SD Micro) to enter "cfgtool mode : " With K2 button (Button file on SIO2SD Micro) select" every startup " Press K3 button (ESC button on SIO2SD Micro) Press K1 button (Drive button on SIO2SD Micro) to go to" topdrive mode " With K2 button (File button on SIO2SD Micro) set it to "off" Turn off computer Turn on computer In this way every time you turn on your Atari menu will be loaded. To have SD card files sorted, use DriveSort , a nice Windows application.
  4. Today, after assembled one board, and got the SD boots up! I am using Firmware 3.0RC5. After spent countless hours, I still not able to have the SIO2SD to boot up the sio2sd.xex in the SD card's root directory! My SD looks working, because I am able to select files from the SD card. But, I am so damn confused all the D1-D15 and V1-V98 stuff! I just wanted to have sio2sd.xex boots up and let me select a *ATR file to run. I've translated (via Google translate) the instructions from the PDF file OpisSETUPiK1-K4v3.1.pdf, and yet nothing works! It's so $^$%$ painful to get an *.ATR file loaded! Please help!
  5. Hi all, The aquarius ram expander that the OP did, it has the DS1233. I am able to locate it but I don't know the exact reset voltage to buy for. Also, the DS1233 is expensive. Is there a substitute for it? DigiKey DS1233 search results: https://www.digikey.com/products/en/integrated-circuits-ics/pmic-supervisors/691?k=econo+reset&k=&pkeyword=econo+reset&sv=0&pv1291=714&sf=1&FV=ffe002b3%2Cffec56cc&quantity=&ColumnSort=0&page=1&pageSize=25 Thanks!
  6. Download the TL866 Software version 6.85 and the problem with GAL2210D/B programming should be solved. This new version just fixes the problem for me! After installing, it will ask you to update the firmware for the TL866 programmer itself! Make sure you do that! Link: http://www.autoelectric.cn/MiniPro/minipro_setup685.rar Below is the release notes for the V6.85. 版本: V6.85 Support:14337--2018.10.19ADD: ATF20V8B FIXED: GAL22V10B M95320W M95128W
  7. Ok. Thank you very much for your answers.
  8. Wow! I just learned about The!Cart. Is there gerber files available for the PCB? Or even just schematic? Thanks!
  9. Hi, Would like to know what is the maximum current an Apple II/IIe slot can draw on? I read in the past somewhere on the net that it would be 500mA? Thanks for any info on this!
  10. Saw the below at https://www.atariarchives.org/mapping/appendix12.php "Probably the most elegant solution is the XL BOSS board which allows you to switch in a RAM OS, the older 800 OS, and the XL OS, as well as turn BASIC on or off with a few keypresses. It's available from Allen MacroWare in Redondo Beach, California. "
  11. Hi all, I've searching high and low for the EagleCAD library for the Atari SIO connector. Basically, I am looking the library part that would pads like a cartridge pads and is as board that would insert between the rows of pins of the Atari's 8-bit computers' SIO male connector port. Yep, a poor-man's solution to having Atari SIO connectivity. Something like the picture attached. Thanks!
  12. Hi, What other Atari OSes that one can put on with this board? Would appreciate links or even download links. I would like to try out this new OSes and see what they are/how they function.
  13. Here is a link I found for Yamari http://atari.000space.com/yamari/yamari.html?i=1
  14. I see. So, if I were to burn the ROM into an EEPROM, e.g., the AT28C256 (a 32KB EEPROM), for the Atari 7800 to play, I need to skip the first 128 bytes.
  15. Hi, I am mostly curious of the Atari 7800 ROMs. So, I downloaded one from the net. Looks like the below is Choplifter. And I think it's a 32KB ROM. Attached is what my programmer utility shows, the hex dump of the ROM. Is the "ACTUAL CART DATA STARTS HERE" text in the ROM normal expected in the ROM? Thanks!
