  1. I have a working Atari 810 drive however the case has several major cracks. Do you have a good case (top and bottom) you can part with? Thanks
  2. Over the past few months I've been given many Atari hardware items and software. These belonged to a friend of mine who was an avid member of the local Atari user group. He died about two years ago, and his son passed away about a year ago. I have been receiving various bits of documentation, paperwork, hardware and software from their family members in the time since they passed away. I've been asking what has and has not been archived and I've been doing my best to make sure that it has been archived (thanks to Allan Bushman for scanning and taking care of this 8-bit material-- he's such a great archivist!). Until this point, I've not given too much thought about using some of the hardware like the 1050/810 disk drives. These were all stored in an outdoor barn/shed. All of the hardware (the computers included) is very dusty and I'd be shocked to learn that any of disk drives work at all. A couple of months ago a friend of mine suggested that he would like to see an Atari load-up some floppy disks to play some games. We can do that already, as I have a disk drive emulator for the Atari and various AtariMax flash carts, but he wants to see some real 5 1/4" floppies booting to some game or other. In addition, included in the last batch of Atari items that I was given, was quite a bit of the Atari 8-bit public domain PD library on 5 1/4" floppy. It might be neat to load some of that stuff up on real hardware. My question is: is there a FAQ or repair/restoration manuals and/or videos on how to go through and restore Atari 810/1050 disk drives. I guess, at the minimum, I'd need to learn to clean/lubricate gears/motors/heads. Adam P.S. I also have several Atari 410 program recorders, but I'm not sure that restoring those would even be worth the effort. Or is there a reason to have these around?
  3. Atari 800XL - $100 Fully repaired & functional computer. Replaced OS chip with latest revision and system now works. Also cleaned mylar to stop sticking key (the "A" key was filling the screen with A's.) From the pics can see the keys no longer stick and the system will load and run games. Comes with Computer, PSU, RF Cable, & switch box. NTSC system. Atari 810 Floppy Drive - $100 Also repaired & functioning. can see from pic that a game loaded just fine. Can only see the corner of the drive in the pic (sorry.) Will take more if requested. Include Unit, PSU, & Serial cable. Prices do not include shipping or PayPal fees. If both are purchased together will include the loaded game
  4. I have two 810 side boards with what look like ROM upgrades, using piggybacked chips. One has a data separator board, the other doesnt: I also have a side board with a windowed FDC: Are these of any interest for ROM dumps?

  6. My 810 is having some problems... surprise, huh? Well, it's able to READ disks thoroughly since it boots into DOS 2.5 no problem. The trouble comes when I try formatting disks. The drive head goes all the way to track 1 as you would normally expect and works its way to the edge of the disk closest to the spindle hole, but after that it very slowly starts to work its way back, maybe taking one step every 15 seconds. Eventually it'll stop and go all the way back to track 1 and repeat the process endlessly, eventually spitting out error - 173. I've tried lightly cleaning the drive head with alcohol and a Q-tip to no avail.
  7. I was testing an 810 drive yesterday and initially I thought it was broken. I had the slide switches set for drive ID 3 and it was not responding. But I decided to test all drive IDs and I found that the drive always thinks it is drive 1. Using it as drive 1 seems to work ok. I was able to make a boot floppy and save/load some test files. Has anyone else seen this? If I clean the switches will it fix the problem? Or are there other fixes I should perform like maybe installing new switches?
  8. Well I got my 810 up and running! And what better way of testing it then by writing a ton of disks? What is some of your favorite Atari 400/800 compatible floppy software? Games, utilities, the whole shebang!!
  9. I recently acquired an 810 disk drive in a big lot of old 8-bit stuff. I love the way it looks, partly because it's the size of a small animal carrier. Anyway, I'm not positive if it is working correctly, and I was hoping that others have some insight. Let me preface everything by saying that I tested the 810 with an 800, 800XL, and XEGS. I used two different power supplies and two different SIO cables. Okay, so I have only two disk-based games: Flight Simulator II and Barge (a cheap K-Tek game). FS2 loads just fine, and you have the option of going into demo mode. When I do this, the demo will run for about 30 seconds, then freeze. The instrument panel turns white, and nothing moves. The computer hangs. The computer does not seem to be trying to access the 810 just before this happens. I also have a 1050 drive. FS2 works just fine with it, and the demo just runs indefinitely. The 810 loads Barge just fine. So, I don't know if there is a problem with the 810, or if FS2 has some problem with it. Is there some diagnostic utility? Also, I don't have any blank disks for testing. Thanks for any help!
  10. Too many power supplies everywhere. I have 12+ plugs for my Atari and half are for the low voltage stuff. Can't I just run all the 9 volt gear off one 9VAC 3.4 Amp Atari brick? Alternative solutions? eBay Auction -- Item Number: 251020503191
