Re: Mega STe and ultrasatan

I think the internal DMA connector and the Internal SCSI host adapter in the MegaSTE and STacy are compatible. Take a look at this thread of putting an UltraSatan into a STacy without an internal SCSI host adapter. http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=22615&p=200694&hilit=Stac...

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

That makes sense.

Are there any benchmarks to compare:
Built-in graphics vs ET4000 vs ATI vs with & without NVDI?

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

Hmmm. Should I purchase another VME adapter to use the ATI Mach64 that I already own?

or

Re: Questions about ATW800 hdd install

Frank's right, no other scsi drivers work. Alex: not much to report, unfortunately I failed to install the 100MB drive for some reason. Formats fine on the TT but the ATW doesn't see it at boot. This drive has a switch for scsi id and parity to enable (NEC D3856) and terminators are present. Tried ...

Re: Firing up the TT030 after 15 Years

Hello Jim,

Welcome back!

Quick answer = yes, probably. Don't forget your SCSI basics, (ID, and termination.)

Quick question before you swap syquest for maxtor: any reason not to back up to the syquest? It may avoid extra work.

Not necessarily. Look at the pinout of the Stacy socket (in the schematics), look at the pinout of your EPROMs (in the datasheet), figure out which connections you have to rewire. Maybe you really just have to put a single wire in place for A16. Hi Y'all, I need help reading...again. I am planning ...

Hi watzi-berg, I'm definitely not an expert on par with our fellow Atarians on this site. That being said, If I remember correctly there probably will be a number of limitations when using the internal ACSI to SCSI adapter. 1) limited to SCSI ID 0 2) limited to 1 GB 3) limited to non-parity ( I don'...
