Re: Atari ST RGB & motherboard help

At a glance, those do not look like the original simms. I can’t be certain but you may have four 1 meg Simms.

Re: Discovery cartridge modifications/questions

I just purchased a Discovery Cart - Option Zero.

How do I use it to read / write 1.44 floppies with a stock ST / STe? :shrug:

Like it says in this clip from an old Advertisement?

Very nice. I have been wanting one of those pricey multi-card units too. How’s progress on the “super drive”? Any pics of the unit you have to share?

Three Sparrow Mainboards on EBay

Hello Community,

I saw this on eBay and thought y'all would find it interesting too.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/302406103307

Atari Prototype Sparrow Motherboard Rev2. The same seller has two other "Sparrow" auctions. I was tempted to bid but I lack the skills to maintain a prototype.

Re: Power Cables and Requirements for U.K. 520STFM in the U.

Looking at the pictures, it is clear that two different versions were produced. I can only see one "input" smoothing capacitor on the USA version, so this design of PSU (which if you look, uses two chips at least) may be a universal type. Has the German version (or indeed any 240V ac vers...

But didn't the TT and Mega STE have the same case and keyboard? :) The keyboard case is so yellow that I cannot tell if it is a TT keyboard or a Mega STE keyboard. :shrug...
