  1. Does anyone know where I could buy some SIO connectors to repair cables and to make some short cables out of longer cables. I looked at Lotharek but his shipping is way to high because he will only sell in sets of 4.
  2. As it turns out the disk drive has just gone BAD, the one I substituted was either already bad or went bad about the 2nd time it tried to read a disk. I took them apart, cleaned the drive heads and watched them try to read a disk then tried both drives on an 800XL and a regular 800 and they were NOGO. Now I guess I will try to sell them for parts because I don't know enough about electronics to repair them and I don't know of anyone that does repairs anymore.
  3. I changed disk drives and the problem remained.
  4. When I try to run the APE trial version (when I click the ICON), nothing happens and I hesitate to purchase the real thing when the trial version doesn't work.
  5. I am using a 130XE with two XF551 drives and I was formatting some old diskettes that had nothing worthwhile on them. After I had formatted 5 or 6 disks, I got an error 173 so I figured bad disk, then it happened on the next 3 I tried, I went back to one of the earlier disks and drive 2 gave me an error 144 when I tried to get a disk directory. I switched out SIO cables and then hooked up a 1050 as drive 2. Same results, drive 2 will not work correctly. I tried formatting one of the bad disks in drive 1 and everything worked perfectly. What could be the source of the problem, I have read some blogs about SIO problems with the 130XE due to resistors located near the SIO out port. HELP!
  6. I recently purchased a SIO2PC USB from AtariMax, the trial version of APE will not get started and email to Atarimax has gone unanswered. Are there any written instructions anywhere out there that will tell me what I need to do in order to use the hardware to accomplish ANYTHING. I am very new at this, I just want to be able to download a few files.
  7. I just bought a SIO2PC from AtariMax, I only have the trial version of APE. Are there any written instructions that tell how to get started. Their website is of no use.
  8. When the instructions say to remove a component, should I just cut it out or unsolved and remove?
  9. Thanks for the link. Do you mean for the program to work or for the link to work.

  11. Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the speedscript 80 word processing program, I don't care if I have to type it in myself, I did that with the original superscript.
