Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

I think that ICD does not format the disk if not needed..I've actually read that somewhere.. So it probably does not format the CF maybe it just creates a new partition table depending on the size of the disk and creates as many partitions as they can fit after checking the disk for bad sectors. I'm...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

So you mean by running HDUTIL I will be able to choose if the ICD driver loads automatically when booting up? edit: HDUTIL menu has indeed an option (boot) in which your chosen partition (c:) can be set to autoboot the driver. It worked great so no re-partitioning or anything else needed. Thanks eve...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

I simply run the INSTALL.PRG so I may need to restart the whole procedure by formatting the CF card again on my PC and run the ICDFMT.prg instead of the INSTALL.PRG as per the links' instructions. I found the guide after I run the INSTALL.prg so I let it complete to avoid further problems. I'll foll...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

Maybe I was using the wrong driver? I've downloaded icdp655a driver and it detects the card:) I'm running the INSTALL.PRG right now; let's see what happens! It's stuck at "testing for bad sectors.." for quite some time but that may be related to the size of the card (4GB). I guess I can le...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

Okay, today everything works fine for some reason:) I tried booting with only the cable and it worked, then plugged the adapter and finally the CF. I tested the CF first and it showed up fine on my computer so it didn't fry after all. Beginner's luck I guess. Yesterday all I got was a black screen a...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

Thanks! So, what could be bothering the falcon from booting with just the adapter plugged in? Also, what could be the correct sequence for successfully formatting a CF card from the atari? Do I try to boot with a FAT formatted CF and a floppy containing the adscsi driver? I know It must've been answ...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

Just wanted to add that the machine boots properly without the IDE to CF adapter attached so I probably damaged the adapter itself, the card or both..
I should be able to boot with the CF card attached even when it's non-formatted, correct?!

Atari Falcon IDE to CF

Hi all, I got a IDE to CF adapter for a Falcon 030. I accidentally plugged the ribbon cable backwards so my CF card has probably fried. :oops: Hope the falcon itself is okay but I need to get another CF card and format it properly to verify that.. The weird thing is that with only the IDE to CF adap...

STE 2.06 Upgrade question

I've just burned two 32pin eproms AM27C010 to replace the two older 28pin TOS chips on my STE. I've moved jumpers w104 and w102 as per this image http://www.tehkella.net/retro/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/AtariST.png and the machine works fine.

Re: STe Weird Problem (black and white stripes on screen)

I didn't try anything else on this;just gave it back.
The seller wouldn't drop below 50€ for it even though it's dead so Ι don't think it was worth it.

Re: STe Weird Problem (black and white stripes on screen)

I think that the cartridge is pretty rare and may also be expensive.I don't plan on hoarding or repairing ataris to justify that cost. Maybe blindly replacing all these chips would prove more cost effective since I see there are quite a few on eBay.(not a proper method to repair electronics) Replaci...

I'm using solid core tInned copper wire yes.(26 awg I think) That didn't fix anything.THe stripes disappeared but some random small black lines (horizontal) appeared on white screen. I probably need a new socket and new cpu to be 100% sure it's not the CPU. I'm not really sure...

Hi all, I got an STe 1mb that does not boot at all. I don't know the TOS version since I can't get to the desktop. Floppy drive does not make any sound and seemed totally dead but when I inserted a disk the orange light came up but no mechanical sounds or any led activity. When I power the machine I...

Re: Falcon 15KHz (TV, RGB) capable flatscreen monitors

Ηmm,I'm not sure where I can change PAL to NTSC.. But I don't think there will be a difference. Maybe using some kind of workbench replacement could solve the issue? It's a shame because I just bought this monitor for my 1200 specifically only to find out that it isn't really flawless as I thought i...

Re: Falcon 15KHz (TV, RGB) capable flatscreen monitors

My 1200 is European so I thought that it only supports PAL but I'll check again and post back.

Here is a not so good photo of what I get:

Interlaced modes don't work properly. I'm talking about hi res non interlaced at 640x240 or 256 or 512. The bottom of the screen does not show whole at overscan. The lower rectangles are cut at about 3/4. I'll post some photos later when I get home. It similar to the problem you post at the first pa...

Re: Falcon 15KHz (TV, RGB) capable flatscreen monitors

I got the same monitor (1970nxp) and I get the same vertical lines missing problem with my amiga 1200.
Any updates on this?!
It's really annoying because it's *almost* there so it should just be a matter of settings to make it work..
The problem seems to lie in the overscan settings.

Re: Wanted: Ultra Satan

Yes ,I agree and these items almost never lose their value only if they become obsolete and something better takes their place.
I guess I was a little on the lowball side on this one. :roll:

I'll update the price.Thanks for your insight.
