I just received a MicroPrint parallel printer interface made by Supra Corp. This was a new in package item. I've connected it to my Atari 1200XL and to my Epson MX-80 printer. When I issue LPRINT commands the Atari acts as if all went well, but nothing happens at the printer. The printer is online and does have paper. I am able to print without issues from my Apple IIgs and my C64. The 1200XL does have a U1MB installed, but disabling high speed I/O doesn't seem to make any difference. I own a FujiNet but it is not connected at the moment. I have also done the 5v SIO fix on my 1200XL. Does anyone have any ideas on how I could resolve this problem?
Afternoon all... so i recently found and decided to hook up my old supradrive to my atari st to look at some old files on there (i`m a working musician and used the ST extensively during the 80`s / 90`s... upon power up i heard a bit of a "crack" from within the casing !!!! ... so i opened her up and a couple of chips on what looks like the controller board were fried ... a quick look on the web meant that i could source the affected chips still and relatively cheaply (hurrah!) ...BUT..... one of the affected chips seems to be a custom programmed EPROM.. and i was wondering if anyone has or knows where to get the file i need to re-burn the new chip as my drive is useless without it .... alternatively can anyone suggest an alternate housing i could source so i can swap the actual HD over ... see piccy`s for the lowdown ... affected chips are 74HCT240N X 1 Easily available S7407N X 1 " " PAL16L8ANC X 1 " " CUSTOM EPROM.. Thanks for any advice / help offered.. steve
I came across this in the Atari FAQ while researching the Supra Hard Drive / Interface. Can anybody verify the Miniscribe as the 20 MB 3.5" version that was sold? (Oddly enough, I used to own that exact Miniscribe disk, which came in a Mac Classic II I used to have.) - SupraDrive Atari Hard Disk system includes: - SupraDrive AT hard disk drive, one of - 10MB drive = Xebec 4000 / Xebec Owl (5.25" SASI) - 20MB drive = Miniscribe 8425S (3.5" SCSI) (can anyone verify this????)
