  1. Hey guys, The subject line says it all! Wii U games on Iomega Zip Disk? The question this video attempts to answer is...will the Wii U even format a 100 MB Zip Disk for external storage? After all, the Playstation 4/5 and Xbox One/Series X require USB drives with a minimum capacity of 250 GB, massively larger than the humble Zip Disk. Also, are there any eShop games that will even fit on the diminutive Zip Disk? Oh, and stick around for the ending where I dig out the Zip Drive’s big brother for some dual action removable drive fun! Hopefully you find this quirky and entertaining! Niles
  2. I’ve been playing around some more with the Wii U. In my new video, I’ll look at formatting a RAID 5 array, moving to and playing eShop games on the array, and testing whether a running Wii U game will survive a hard disk failure. Hopefully something you guys find interesting! Video: Wii U connected to RAID 5 array
  3. It's just a fairly generic drive from Amazon. Loading times are much slower on DVD-RAM, especially the disc I used which was 1X.
  4. Thanks! I couldn't either the first time I tried it!
  5. I've been playing around with the Wii U's external storage over USB ports, and wanted to see if I could get DVD-R or DVD-RAM to work with the system. I made a little video showing off what works and what doesn't. Hope you guys like. https://youtu.be/fKHOvSbQTIo
  6. I think he was speaking merely of the connectors...not Atari game compatibility.
  7. I wonder if the pinout for the pre-MSX Sperctravideo computers are Atari compatible?
  8. Thanks! The SpectraVideo line of computers does include some MSX compliant ones. The early models SV-318 and SV-328 were very similar to what would become the MSX standard, and the later SVI-728 was a MSX complaint computer. I guess I sorta lumped both formats together under "Spectravideo computers" for simplicity. I believe Atari patented their joystick, but not the port itself.
  9. Atari 2600 controllers work in the 7800, even for 7800 games that only require one button.
  10. Fair question. The list I'm compiling is for devices that can use a standard Atari joystick, not about 9-pin controllers that work in some Atari 9-pin port devices. I'm aware of the functionality you're speaking of, it's just not what I need for the list I'm compiling.
  11. Looking for a list of all consoles, computers, or other devices that use the Atari 9-Pin port and are cross compatible. So this list would exclude devices that have the same port, but need an adapter to be compatible, like the Vectrex and TI-99/4A. It would also exclude devices that are electrically compatible but have a different port, like the Commodore Plus/4 series. For now, let's skip the Sega Master System and Genesis from this list. Also, I'm only looking for devices that were released in North America/NTSC. Thanks! Here's what I have so far: Atari 2600 Atari Flashback series Atari 7800 Atari 8-bit computers Atari ST Atari Falcon ColecoVision VIC-20 C64 C128 Amiga computers Timex Sinclair 2068 Spectravideo computers
  12. A controller doesn't "send" volts. A controller receives volts to power it.
  13. You're making assumptions about what people would need an extension cable for. There is more than one reason. Just because you don't see a need for it is no reason state your opinion as fact.
