  1. I was reading the Dos 3 manual (ducks) while sitting in the smallest room of my house (guess which one that is) : "In addition to the Master Diskette 3 (CX8104), your ATARI Disk Drive comes with an ATARI Formatted Diskette 3 (CX8111). Although this diskette has no files or program data on it, it has been preformatted at the factory. Preformatting means the diskette was divided into tracks and sectors before packaging (Figure 3-1) so that it has an improved sector layout. This improved sector layout makes it possible for you to store and retrieve information more rapidly than is possible with diskettes formatted on your ATARI Disk Drive." How do these improved sector layouts work? Or is this bogus and Atari just wanted you to buy these "improved" disks from them?
  2. Hello to all, In a video on the YouTube channel of "8-bit show and tell" Glitch World In Commodore 64 Ninja - YouTube I discovered a floppy disk version of Ninja (Mastertronics) where the Atari and Commodore versions are on the same side of the disk. Floppy disks with Atari on one side and Commodore on the other side are very common. But I don't understand at all how to fit two versions for two very different computers on the same side of a floppy disk... Can someone explain to me how this is possible? I don't know anything about the Commodore floppy disk format, but I doubt that it is organized like the Atari one. Apart from the fact that they share the physical format 5"1/4 and 48 TPI, the rest must be very different, right? Or is it a common formatting that can be read on both? I'm really curious to know the answer. Thanks in advance,
  3. Hey all, I just acquired a side car floppy drive, but I don't have a 32k RAM expansion for it and I'm looking to mess around with assembly language. I do however have a nanoPEB. Now, as silly as this may sound, would it be possible to set up the floppy drive, AND the nanoPEB so that the nanoPEB would act as the 32K expansion, or would having the 3 emulated floppy drives and the real floppy drives make something go wrong? In addition to that, now that I have a real floppy drive, what are good floppy disk games out there? Thanks!
  4. While noodling around on YouTube, I've been seeing a lot of comments on Amiga-related videos where people say that they had an external diskette drive for their Amiga computer but the drive stopped working properly. This may not actually be the diskette drive. So before you throw the drive in the trash or recycle it or commit it to some other horrible fate, try testing the drive on an Amiga that has no issues using a different external drive (contact a friend who has a working multi-diskette configuration and see if they'll let you test the drive). It could be that one (or both) of the CIA chips in the Amiga are fried. Possible causes include unplugging and plugging parallel, serial, or disk drive cables while the Amiga is on. You can unplug and plug parallel and serial cables on a powered IBM PC. However, on an Amiga you can damage your machine doing that. In the past I repaired a number of OCS Amigas with this condition. This also means that some of the diskettes out there that are supposedly bad, aren't. Again, it's worth testing on an known good machine.
  5. Will a 5.25" DS/DD diskette drive from a Tandy 1000 work in a PCjr or did Tandy customize the floppy drive?
  6. Hi! A while ago I made these Floppy Disks Cloisonne (Genuine Hard Enamel) Pins (For those that don't know what Cloisonne means, keep reading and you'll find the explanation) I still have some of them, so if you are interested please don't hesitate in PM me. If you prefer to use a regular checkout and keep track of your purchase, you can always buy a pin at my website http://www.wolzky.com p.s. I know you can find cheaper enamel pins, the thing is that there are only 2 cloisonne factories left in the world and the process is expensive and time consuming and the minimum order quantities are huge. Real Cloisonne is considered as jewelry and will last a really long time. Thank you for your attention and understanding. SPECIFICATIONS • Material: Genuine Cloisonné (Genuine Hard Enamel) • Finish: Nickel • Dimensions: 1" x 1" (2.54cm x 2.54cm) • Thickness: 0.08" (2mm) • Features a back metallic butterfly clutch • Designed in New York City, USA • Price: $9.49 SHIPPING • Shipping Cost: $3.50 • I can only ship within the USA. Unfortunately I cannot control Foreign Postal Services and shipping using private couriers is really expensive. My deepest apologies. What is Cloisonné? Cloisonné is the ancient Chinese technique, developed over thousand years ago, of creating designs on a metal surface with colored-glass paste placed within enclosures made of copper or bronze wires, which have been bent or hammered into the desired pattern. The enamel, colored with metallic oxide, is used to paint the contained areas or partitions of the design, known as cloisons (French for “partitions”). The pin is then kiln-fired at 800°C. Enamels commonly shrink after firing, so the process is repeated several times to fill in the designs and ensure that the colors will not bleed. Once this process is complete, the surface of the pin is hand-polished and plated until the edges of the cloisons are visible. It is said that Cloisonné can be preserved for 100 years without fading because it's mineral origin. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate in PM me. Thanks for your attention and support!
  7. Hey all, I just got the editor assembler cart with the manual. However, I do not have access to the diskettes. Does anyone know where I can find a link to a .dsk file of the files on those disks that I can run off of my nanoPEB? Thanks!
