  1. to all... apologies for not yet posting the details with regarding the 3 Atari`s ..past few days have been manic ... i`ll get onto it a.s.a.p ..stay posted..
  2. So following my recent decision to fire up the old Atari St and other peripherals i happened to find lying around the loft i came across a box with x 3 ST`s in it .. from memory they ALL powered up ok but some of the floppy drives were in need of re-belting (i`ll replace and test prior to any interest)... i was wondering if anyone would be interested in them either as a job lot or singles ?... i`m going to get them out tomorrow and provide full (as best i can specs / model) info... Cheers Steve p.s. i`d rather they went as whole units as opposed to "i`ll take a power supply" etc.. because i don`t have much time for that stuff anymore sorry..

(forgive my total lack of knowledge on this subject !!) thanks Steve
  4. Right ho ! gives me an idea of what to look for ... thanks alot steve
  5. Duly noted ..and posted in the correct section .. thanks Steve
  6. ok thanks i`m on it !! may need help with the interface side of things also but i`ll cross that bridge when i get to it ... thanks alot cheers Steve
  7. ok ...thanks... i guess its pretty bad then ? thanks steve
  8. Afternoon all... so i recently found and decided to hook up my old supradrive to my atari st to look at some old files on there (i`m a working musician and used the ST extensively during the 80`s / 90`s... upon power up i heard a bit of a "crack" from within the casing !!!! ... so i opened her up and a couple of chips on what looks like the controller board were fried ... a quick look on the web meant that i could source the affected chips still and relatively cheaply (hurrah!) ...BUT..... one of the affected chips seems to be a custom programmed EPROM.. and i was wondering if anyone has or knows where to get the file i need to re-burn the new chip as my drive is useless without it .... alternatively can anyone suggest an alternate housing i could source so i can swap the actual HD over ... see piccy`s for the lowdown ... affected chips are 74HCT240N X 1 Easily available S7407N X 1 " " PAL16L8ANC X 1 " " CUSTOM EPROM.. Thanks for any advice / help offered.. steve
  9. Yeah ... thought that also about the PSU ... I`ve ran a capacitance tester all over it and it comes back "normal" also the old multimeter on the resistors etc ... but i hear what your saying ... i have a bench power supply so i`ll hook that up and see whats being output ... i`m interested in your solution but to be honest most of what i do is now in the P.C. domain and thus going back to the atari stuff is like being a time traveller !! ... just as a matter of interest do you know if these old caddy`s /ICD Interfaces are freely available ??.. thanks for your time/reply steve
