  1. Hey guys, I am looking for ADOS in an ATR file that was created by Bill Wilkinson back in 1987. Does anyone have this disk image? I have googled it and found an article, but not the disk image.
  2. Just to keep things lively, this is the set of all (known to me) XF schematics. Maybe this way I can find them easier the next time I look for them. Mariusz Geisler From: http://blog.3b2.sk/igi/post/Chyby-v-scheme-ATARI-XF-551-Bugs-in-circuit-ATARI-XF551.aspx Igor Gramblicka V1 Igor Gramblicka V2 From: https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Atari%20XF551 Atari Japan Preliminary XF551_schematic.pdf And from the FAQ: The reverse side of a 2-sided "flippy" disk may be used by inserting the disk into the drive upside-down. But note: Chinon-built XF551--CANNOT read/write/format disk backside if the disk has no 2nd timing hole Mitsumi-built XF551--CAN read/write disk backside if the disk has no 2nd timing hole, but CANNOT format the backside without the 2nd timing hole. Discussion here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/138304-cant-flip-disk-on-xf551/
  3. Is there a preferred method of creating 360kb "XF-551 style" auto boot menu disks in quad density? I'm looking for something like radmenu or similar that can handle a large capacity disk format.
  4. Hello all, I have been slowly trying to get a 3.5" drive connected to my 800XL. As a caveat: I have access to many many other ways to put data on the 8bit. I realize these are probably more expedient and efficient, but I like to try old stuff. I'm weird that way. So, if you can stomach that level of oddity, I would WELCOME your help Here's what I have: XF551 with a Bob Wooley 80 track ROM. Probably works, purchased off of ePay. The 551 worked as stock before I pulled the old rom and put in the new one. Did not have to socket it as a socket was already there. Mistumi 3.5" 1.44MB drive pulled from a Windows 95(!) machine. Works. Formatted a 720k floppy just fine (I used it to create a boot disk to load the drivers for the Portfolio Card drive, so I could connect a iomega ZIP100 drive to the Portfolio . . worked like a charm! but that is another story for another forum) A collection of 34pin card edge to IDC adaptors. [see pic] I can get it all connected, but I cannot get SDX to format. It sees the drive without a problem. Access light comes on when being accessed, but no joy. I know something is not right because SDX polls the drive and polls the drive on boot until it errors out and then drops to the C drive. (I have also tried booting without the drive on and then trying things, no joy.) So, I know SOMEONE here has some magic in their hat that will say, "Oh, hey, you just need to . . . " and there will be joy in Fujidom. I have also reduced the pics included as much as possible. If they are too big for folks, I do apologize. Thanks for your troubles. -M
  5. I sold one of these on eBay and it worked perfectly when it was listed... when the buyer received it, he had the following question: "Okay, so I unpackaged the drive, and as I was taking the drive out of the bubble wrap, I heard rattling in the case. A piece could be heard sliding around, clearly not connected. I opened the case and found a metal piece that is "U"-shaped, with little tiny black rubber-like rectangular pads on one side at the bottom, and each side of the metal piece. The piece is about 1 inch across and 3/4 inch top to bottom, and a fraction of an inch thick. Any idea what this is? I have looked for a service manual and cannot find one. I am hesitant to power up the drive with this piece not connected." Can anyone help identify what this piece is? I can't get a pic from him because FeeBay won't allow me to send him my email address. Any help is greatly appreciated... Thanks, Roger
  6. I have some hardware for sale in the Marketplace if anyone is interested: Atari 8-Bit Computer Hardware For Sale
