Atari 810 Happy Drive - Help needed

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

i recently checked some of my Atari 8-bit hardware and discovered the following problems:

 

- If i try to access my 810 Happy Drive and my 1050 Happy Drive from the "Happy Warp Speed Menu" Disk, only one drive is recognized as a Happy Drive, depending on the Revision of the Disk (Rev 5.x: 810, Rev 6.x and 7.x: 1050). As far as i remember i was able to copy from 810 to 1050 via Happy Backup in the past. Any ideas?

 

- I had a 810 Happy Drive that was compatible with "Happy Warp Speed Menu Rev 7.10" that i traded for a XEGS. Before i gave it away i dumped the EPROM content to disk. The disk with the EPROM image is unfortunately no longer readable - is there any way to get a dump of the EPROM on the internet?

 

- The 810 i traded also had the ability to switch to slower speed, my recent drive does not repond to the "slow speed" command. As far as i remember there was a tiny electrical circuit that did the job. Are there any schematics or other information available to implement this feature to my drive?

 

- My "Happy Warp Speed Menu Rev 5.6" disk is also no longer readable and i haven't been able to find an atr-image on the internet. Has anyone dumped his disk and can send it to me?

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

I dug up my old 5.2 and 5.3 HWS disks, but they have become totally unreadable. :(
