  1. I recently went with the SuperCard Pro option since the Kryoflux continues to be blocked for shipping to the USA, and I'd been using a TEAC FD-55GFR with a previous floppy capture device-- but I didn't see it mentioned in the list here. Should I expect any problems, and are there any specifics I need to be made aware of before I return to disk archiving, this time with the SCP? So far, someone noted to read to 41 for extra information, but is there anything else? Thanks, in advance, --Tim
  2. Yeah, not to mention the racism of the place as well as the sexual harassment I had to see the women put up with (who didn't quit the place). Bygones. Bygones. --Tim
  3. This is interesting... Alright, so as I mentioned, the specific MIDIMate II package might not have its manual (I'm going to assume no at this point) but... In one of the MIDIMate III packages there IS a MIDIMate II manual with the MIDIMate III Addendum for the 130XE release... whereas the other MIDIMate III package has a spiral-bound manual specific to the III. --Tim
  4. I must've been typing up an edit of my post... but the only one that doesn't seem to have docs/manual is the MIDIMate II box/case. . . just the original disk for MIDIMate II. I have the original manuals/docs/disks for the MIDIMate III set, however. Hope that was less confusing? --Tim
  5. Hey there, @Allan, The three larger boxes (one was mistakenly inside the storage cabinet) are their MidiMate packages (2 x MIDIMate III, 1 x MIDIMate II), and the smaller but similarly-styled case is their MidiPatch. I haven't made it to the sound apps yet (I had adopted a compatible Casio keyboard to go-with for when I finally do), but a brief glance just now and it looks like (not counting the included MidiMate devices themselves) the manuals and floppies are present and accounted for. I believe I have maybe 3 more orphaned (no case, no docs, no discs) MidiMate devices, too, but those I keep in a storage drawer. --Tim Addendum: The MIDIMate II is lacking the manual/docs but I might have put them in my file cabinet with all the other documentation I've accumulated. But maybe not. I'm still in the process of inventorying everything, believe it or not! /facepalm
  6. I'm just happy that I had the disposable income at the time to build the collection and workstation to where it stands, because a year ago March that all ended when I lost my job of 10 years-- bringing to a close the EBay and Goodwill Stores hunting and adopting of Atari items. My first sacrifice was rehoming my "50 Shades of Yellow" 1200XL collection to two very kind and generous Atari-Agers in order to have some emergency funds while I sorted out what to do after being shown the door by my employer for asking that a workplace bully be redressed. The stress of that whole situation took a pretty hefty toll on my health over the previous six years to the point where the doctors were warning me I was headed for a heart attack. I finally put my foot down and so the company did, too. The co-owner's son's still there, still being enabled... but I'm slowly on the mend. This is my dream collection at this point, and I'm more than content with it and appreciate it because the time may come when I'll need to rehome it, too. --Tim
  7. Great setups! I only have a few pictures of my original Atari system (one is below), before I parted with everything except my then-limited Atari books collection (Compute! books only) and was unceremoniously sucked into the PC and Microsoft vortex... A few years ago, burned out from the PC life, I decided I needed Atari back in my life and— apart from a boatload of Atari gear NOT pictured that I have in storage right now— here's where things stand currently with my 1200XL workstation and accompanying collection... ________ ________
  8. @griff3125, not sure if this information will help you out, but... https://console5.com/wiki/Commodore_1702 --Tim
  9. Thanks, Allan! This one is in .xfd format until I can image the disk into an .atr (if even needed). --Tim disk0002.xfd
  10. Good morning, everyone! I thought I'd picked up a Kryoflux, but it turns out that the adapter was a FC5025 to go with this Teac FD-55GFR. They included a software that lets me dump floppies from a variety of computer formats, although I am pretty sure the dumps aren't on-par with the Kryoflux device. It's what I have for now, so gotta work with what I have. In any case, I found a lone disk from Novatari, but have been unable to turn up any sort of collection/compilation of Novatari's public domain library to verify whether this disk has already been archived for preservation. Education // Utility No. 37 General Ledger and Smart Sheet Thanks in advance for anyone who knows or can steer me to the right place...? --Tim
  11. I think you're correct about the copy protection because I had tried copying one of the copies I have here, and it bugged out somewhere around that point, as I recall. That was quite a while ago. I should try it again, and check the other set, too. In the meantime, here are the images I generated back in 2016... --Tim Fleet System 2.zip
  12. Good and glad to know about your experience with the ProSystem method, and I whole-heartedly agree with you RE: Synapse disks. The media's like tissue paper in their sleeves!! O.o --Tim
  13. Found a couple odd ducks that I can't seem to find either on AtariMania or a8Preservation... I've never dumped cassettes, however. --Tim
  14. Thank YOU, Allan! I combined the three collections (yours, mine, Pooldisk) and standardized the filenames to match your existing archive. I also included the catalog you had posted on Archive.org simply to bundle everything into a single location. There were two files named Typesetter that I could not find in the catalog, but they were included in your zip (above) so they continue on in the attached ZIP, as well. --Tim CT_ComputerActive_PD_Collection_incomplete.zip
  15. Good morning! I had several disks in my collection here that are missing from the archive posted (above), so I am including them in an updated ZIP archive. I did not verify a side-B on any disks unless the disk itself was notched. Also, if a filename has (E) after it, then there were errors and the logfile will hopefully provide the necessary information. --Tim An Atari owner Genesee Atari Group.zip
  16. Although it's taken me (so far) about 3 years to finally start going through all the floppies I picked up during my crazy Atari-adopting binges of the last 3 years, I am finding a few things to give to the Atari community. Among them is several missing C&T ComputerActive PD disks, so what I did was take the existing compilation and then added the disks I have here. If a filename includes (E) after it, there were errors during the atr creation process. I included any logfiles generated, however. Hope this helps! --Tim An Atari owner C and T ComputerActive.zip
  17. Good morning, Farb! I am FINALLY working my way through my floppy disk collection and found an original copy of Dodgeracer. I am attaching an .atr and .pro file as I don't know right now where I have my kyroflux or whatever it's called that provides a physical-level copy. I'm sure it's in a drawer... somewhere. /facepalm The log files may be helpful with cracking the program...? Hope this helps! --Tim DodgeRacer (Synapse) uncracked.zip
  18. Good morning, @evilmoo, I don't have anything to add to the responses you've already seen from others as to the unZIPping issue you're experiencing, except to say that the ZIP file I host from the Atari Preservation efforts is directly (via torrent) from the people behind the project and I have every confidence that they verify and re-verify an archive before releasing it to the Atari 8-bit community. I simply host the archive at my server as an option for people who prefer not to use torrent as a method of file retrieval. --Tim
  19. I continue to host the most recent archive here (link below), @andyhants, but there hasn't been a subsequent, newer archive released that I'm aware of: https://atari-owner.com/fun/atari-preserved-software/ --Tim
  20. Sorry for the delay... https://archive.org/details/gcp-manual-1986-games-computers-play-inc --Tim
  21. I'll certainly add it on the list of Atari to-do's, @evilmoo, for when things die down again here on the homefront. Should be a pretty straightforward task. /thinking --Tim
  22. Hey there, @doctor_x, happened to see your post. The only GCP materials I've come across is what I picked up off EBay a few years back as part of an Atari lot. Didn't even know there were disks (.atrs) available to go-with. 🤡 🤯 --Tim
  23. Here are .atr's of the requested floppies I have in the ANALOG set here, everyone. --Tim ANALOG 8-Bit Extra Disk1.ATR ANALOG 8-Bit Extra Disk1-B.ATR ANALOG 8-Bit Extra Disk2.ATR ANALOG 8-Bit Extra Disk2-b.ATR ANALOG Compendium Disk1.ATR ANALOG Compendium Disk1-b.ATR ANALOG Compendium Disk2.ATR ANALOG Compendium Disk2-b.ATR
