Re: Utilize more than 1GB from SD Card UltraSatan

I've never hooked an Ultrasatan up to any of my Mega STe's. However, as far as I know, the internal connector is the same between the STacy and the Mega STe. Noting that, I *had* to have Alan's internal Mega STe adapter to use with my Ultrasatan when I installed it in my STacy. Not saying you can't...

Sounds like a nice setup. Something about the sound of a syquest or similar drive I enjoy... don't know why. :D

Re: Utilize more than 1GB from SD Card UltraSatan

The limitation is not TSO 2.05, but STacy/MegaSTE internal ACSI-SCSI-hostadapter. (Difference between TOS 2.05 & 2.06 is mainly that 2.06 supports legacy ST hardware) No. The UltraSatan device connects to the ACSI port directly. It does not have anything to do with the MegaSTE internal SCSI. I ...

Sony Optical MO Disk Drive on Atari

Found something peculiar in my stash of Atari goods I acquired years ago. I been slowly going through it. Not sure where the previous owner got it all from but think it was from an dealer that went out of business. So in the stash was a SCSI Sony MO Disk Drive P301. Not much info online but appears ...

Re: Utilize more than 1GB from SD Card UltraSatan

I do have 2.06 but have to find a few moments and patience to install. Was something I planned on doing once I got the hard drive or Satan device booting and working.

Re: Help getting internal HDD in Mega STe

Re: Utilize more than 1GB from SD Card UltraSatan

HDDriver should let you make up to 13 partitions. your ultrasatan has two card slots. partition the top card however you like in Atari format, then get a 128/256/512k etc card and format that TOS/DOS and it'll be readable on a pc too, then use it as a 'swap' disk in the second slot. I will try agai...

Reason I selected TOS is when I tried TOS and Microsoft, a message appeared I would need TOS 4.x to use it...

OK, new to this whole Satan/UltraSatan device. I acquired my 2nd hand with a Mega STe I purchasd a number of years ago. It is the little black box on top of my Mega STe. Has two SD slots. On/Off switch with ACSI cable coming out back that I used to connect to computer. A power plug too. So, is this ...

Re: Help getting internal HDD in Mega STe

Since the Seagate 2GB can't be partitioned again as it is not showing up, figured I would boot from older HDDriver 7.55 and check the ID, and the seagate appears.... so why does it not show up as a suitable device to be partitioned? I should be able to start over at least? Why would the drive all of...

Man, I thought I was at a success BUT with a different drive (Seagate ST32550N).

Disconnect any external ACSI devices. Install the Quantum LPS. Set the jumpers to SCSI ID 0, parity off. Remove termination resistor packs. See here for docs on LPS jumper settings. Here is the PCB on my Apple Quantum and I just read closer... it is not an LPS but also an Quantum ProDrive ELS, Appl...

Re: Help getting internal HDD in Mega STe

In general you never format stuff from within hddrutil, only partition. format is low level stuff. Besides that, there's a famous "DMA bug" that affected STEs, not sure about how common the problem was on Mega STE, where FATs were trashed pretty randomly (sometimes instantly) which would ...

Re: Current purchasable USB Keyboard to Mega STe options

As far as I know, there is no keyboard driver for the NetUSBee. USB mice will work, though. We might in the future provide a USB keyboard driver for the Lightning VME USB card we're developing. However, please note that it would still need loading a driver, so for example you cannot abort the TOS m...

Is there actually such a thing.... USB keyboard to Atari? Maybe I was daydreaming? How about that NetUSbee product. I see it does ethernet and also has 2 USB ports. Are those USB ports only for PS/2 compatible USB mice also? Maybe I am better off doing a PS/2 device then. I actually think I have a P...
