  1. I used Altirra itself to create a cf image and add it to Side2. I still have to find some spare time and experiment with Physical Disk option...
  2. 100$ for a sio2pc? I bought mine from Lotharek for way less money... Sio2pc is your best bet for transferring images to real floppies. If you are located in the USA then it could possibly be expensive to buy one from Europe, so a good alternative would be to buy an SDrive max. Else, your last option (and quite cheap) is indeed to hack an sio cable and a usb-to-serial adapter to make your own sio2pc... RespeQT is the software to go...
  3. Thank you for your answer dear friend. Of course I understand. I am not complaining at all, I just explain my wish that it could be more easilly obtained. Peter @JAC! has already put my name on a waiting list and I don't want to bypass any other people. Thank you for your offer, I will choose to wait as anybody else, I just hope that Peter has still my name on that list!
  4. Great cartridge, but really difficult fon non ABBUC members to get their hands on one... I am on the waiting list since last May! OK, I understand the fact that the production is funded and being run by ABBUC but somehow the demand could be predicted and spare units produced... I just hope it won't take much longer for my turn on that waiting list...
  5. What we think? We just think that you are awesome! Looking forward to any progress on this!
  6. Check for "Complete zip" top right...
  7. Maybe a KEYCON by Junger can also help somehow... Personally I found it useful solving keyboard problems in some cases. Excellent also for troubleshooting. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?url=https://atariage.com/forums/topic/270312-new-tiny-project-keycon-keyboard-adapter-for-xlxe/&share_tid=270312&share_fid=4675&share_type=t&link_source=app
  8. Fortunately, I was able to find some cards used from a known source in UK...
  9. Just for display: https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-ULTRA-Compact-Flash-Cameras/dp/B019CUVFK2 Of course not at that price! I bought from eBay at around 12 euros each. Working in all my retro projects flawlessly...
  10. There are many options of course. I will not advise on what to choose, it depends on your approach on how to enjoy your Atari. Instead, I will say what I thought about it as a newbie myself: Sooner or later, if one wants to run recent releases and demos, a memory expansion is needed. So, this expense is to be considered too. Having this in mind, best option for me was Side2 with U1Mb installed. Pretty much it can run almost everything that exists out there... SDX with APT and FAT16 partitions on the CF is also something that you will love for sure if you will use your Atari for more than gaming...
  11. No, it is not detecting the card because of memory conflict issues with Side driver, as Jon explained in another thread when I asked the same question.
  12. As far as the partitions is concerned, you can't run the FDISK with only 64kb. I had the same problem and (before installing my U1Mb) I solved the situation like this: - took an image of my cf with win32DiskImager - used Altirra to mount this image as cf of Side2 device - prepared the partitions - had the image written back to the cf with same program
  13. I remember I used the Side2_full. I first updated SDX then the Loader, as described in a relative YouTube video.
  14. Well. I received yesterday my Ultimate cartridge. Seller stated that it has the latest firmware loaded. I know that nevertheless this firmware is out there available for a long time so I believe you may have updated too. My Antonia board has also the latest firmware available by Jacek, as he informed me. All tests good. I loaded many bin, rom, car files as well as xex files. No problems. All loaded fine. @SS what kind of incompatibility issues do you have? With certain files or in total with the Ultimate menu?
  15. There is a table with all available A8 loading devices in this thread. For sure it can help to have the big idea...
