Please help with connecting SIO2SD v1.3 to real floppy drives

Recommended Posts

Since he said it behaves that way with 1050's as well, I think we've got a sio2sd problem as to whether that's the cord or something with the sio2sd that remains to be seen, what kind of power supply is being used?

Does the Indus possibly not pass through the +5V signal?

Well.. I just tested an Sdrive max daisy chained through one of my Indus GT's, powered up and worked fine...

Thank you for the confirmation. So I was sold a bad SIO2SD then. It will only work plugged directly in to an Atari.

I used to use my Lotharek-built SIO2SD 1.3 with my 1050 drive. I was able to copy disks using a sector copier from the SIO2SD to an actual floppy disk in the 1050. Its how I would copy homebrew programs for our Atari user group. The person who runs our group (SCAT in suburban Chicago) doesnt have any SIO2X devices where I could give him an ATR. Giving him a floppy was the only way I could get the process to work for him.

I got it figured out! I took apart the connector, and one of the pins was pushed all the way back, so I gently pushed it back into the connector and I heard it "click" securely into place and now it works in the drive chain! I am using my home-grown custom sector copier program and so far it seems to be working, I was able to boot from it and sector copy a disk from D1 (sio2sd) to a physical disk in D2. Thank you all!

I've complained about this sort of thing forever, good job running it down. :)
