  1. Hi from Aoteora (New Zealand) in the south Pacific. Around a year ago I bought an Atari 800XL off Ebay. Then I went online to find a solution to allow me to start playing all my old favourite games again. I settled on the Side2 by Lotharek. It seemed like an elegant solution. When I finally got it I tested it out and sure enough I was able to play some games. Then I discovered that I couldn't play ATR games without a memory upgrade so I bought the Ultimate 1MB upgrade from Lotharek. Unfortunately my wife and I started renovations and the Atari went into storage. That brings us to last week.. I pulled it out and installed the upgrade. It was really easy and I was excited to finally be able to play ATR games! But.. nope. I still can't play ATR games I hope someone can help me out. The U1MB upgrade definitely works. I have set up my CF card by following the video on Lotharek's site. I followed the instructions for the Side2 in the pdf on Lotharek's site: - In U1MB bios: enable SpartaDOS, Enable Side2 with button, save and hold L - I mark the ATR with the space bar then press enter - I hear loading sounds then the Atari reboots and brings up the READY prompt or runs Missile Command depending on what is set in the U1MB bios I'm pretty sure the firmware for both the Side2 and U1MB is version 1. So I thought I should update both. I followed the instructions to upgrade the firmware in the pdf on atari8.co.uk. I put the UFLASH utility and the appropriate firmware file in the Fat32 partition of my CF card and I run the utility, but I can't get the utility can't find the ROM file! It seems I have to copy them onto one of the APT formatted drives on my CF card but I can't do that without access to the FAT32 partition. To get access to the partition I need to initialise FATFS.SYS from the APT toolkit but I can't access it unless it's on one of the APT formatted drives! Catch-22! Can anyone out there tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks
