Hi, I'm looking to buy the following: - floppy extension data/power cables for HXC (to connect the HxC outside of the ST through the floppy slot) - DB19 to DB19 hard disk cable for Megafile 30 - cable to connect ST to Commodore 1084(s) monitors: (does this work well ? any difference between connecting to this monitor or conecting to the SC1224 when playing games ?) - power adapter for SF314 (must be US/Canada version) Please let me know what you have and how much for it. Thanks
Hello I am using an Atari STE 520 with a HxC device called the "USB floppy drive emulator" in revision D made by Lotharek. This is the version which lacks jumper switches, but lets you select the device ID in software. Using this device as a internal floppy drive works acceptable. However I run into problems when I try to use it as an external FDD with a cable made by this guide: http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=26656 Sadly the Wiki entry which is mentioned in this guide is broken. All internal jumpers inside my STE are on their default (http://info-coach.fr/atari/hardware/interfaces.php) so pin 5 of the 14 pin connector would try to reach a FDD with ID 1 (rather than 0). The problem is that it won't work for me... The control LED of the HxC device for floppy access just lights up if I set the HxC to DS2 (all normal) or DS1 (with twisted cable). With those configuration I can for example open the floppy folder of "orbital destroyer". The internal FDD does sounds when doing so. If I then start the game the internal FDD continues to make sound, but the external one isn't used. The problem is the same if I cut the cable of (Atari STE-) pin 5 having it floating (Atari STE pin 6 still connected). However cutting 6 while having 5 still connected doesn't work. Does someone of you operate a Atari STE 520 with a Lotharek USB floppy drive emulator as external FDD? Is this possible, or is there a funky bug? Has anybody an idea what I am doing wrong? PS: Of Orbital Destroyer I have the actual 3.5 inch and I am going to put it to SPS tonight =) With kind regards Ben
Enter the Flash ROM 99, since it's introduction, it's stirred things up with the ability to hold so many programs and load them so much faster than from a diskette. We've been able to save a lot of disk space. With this savings in mind, have you given any consideration to how we can maximize that extra disk space, or create new environments or expand programs in ways never considered before? For you FR99 users, how have your TI habits changed since you started using it? With or without the FR99, has this device inspired any new ideas or ways to exploit the TI? What have you done, if anything with all the extra space? Any other comments?
I'm starting this thread in hopes that it will generate some interest in the device, serve as a gathering place for those with questions and possibly even serve to promote TI-specific applications in the future. Now, to start it all off..... A question came to mind as soon as I saw this in a pdf file... ... would a new routine need to be developed for the TI to accomplish this (like in extended BASIC) or is there a way already that I'm just ignorant of? Can you IMAGINE the possibilities of a software switched drive from within a program? GAWD!
