Re: Wittich ISA adapter for MegaST

BTW, why the W32 needs an extra handling from the ISA adapter perspective? Because the ET4000W32 needs the ALE (Address Latch Enable) signal from the ISA bus, while the ET4000 make no use of it. The original ET4000 GAL on the Nova did not generate ALE or didn't generate it with the right timing (I ...

Re: Which power adaptor to use for ICD ACSI host adapter?

Really just the host adapter? Or host adapter + hard disk? Iirc, my ICD host adapter does not use the 12 V rail at all. And if I look at these photos, it would even be dangerous to connect a regular 4-pin connector with 5V and 12V : http://wiki.newtosworld.de/index.php?title=(ICD)_AdSCSI_Plus_ST . W...

Re: Alternative ZIP packers/depackers for Atari?

I sometimes use Vincent's version under TOS: http://vincent.riviere.free.fr/soft/m68k-atari-mint/archives/mint/. Although an ST is so slow that it's always faster unzipping the files to the SD card on the PC before I put the card into my ST. EDIT: There is also http://atariftp.czietz.de/pub/atari/Ar...

Re: IDE autoboot for TOS 1.04

Here you have TOS in Spanish, patched to autoboot from IDE. Versions: 1.04, 1.06 and 2.06 All from ppera sources. I'm afraid this does not work with HDDRIVER, whereas my patch does. Afaik, ppera's patches require his harddisk driver. BTW: TOS 2.06 autoboots from IDE just fine; it does not need any ...

Re: Wittich ISA adapter for MegaST

When you use the right addresses so you can use NVDI5 (ET4000). NVDI have support for W32 cards ... If -- just an assumption! -- the GAL of the Wittich card is not compatible with the W32, NVDI won't be able to use it, either. @ctirad: If you want to try: The correct addresses for NVDI/ET4000 shoul...

Re: Wittich ISA adapter for MegaST

Now all my ET4000 cards except /W32 are recognised by EMUTOS and the driver from frank does work as well. Does the W32 work with Frank's Nova driver then? Or isn't it recognized at all? When I got my Nova, I remember I had to modify the GAL to get my W32 i working reliably. So it might very well be...

For every Fsfirst a new cache entry is used. It doesn't matter that the Desktop reuses DTAs. See my test program over at hatari-devel.

Frank is right about NV-RAM. If you managed to to configure the SCSI ID of the TT itself (the one that can be changed by Bootconf or HDDRUTIL) to the same ID as the harddrive (e.g. both 0), then a lot of strange effects can occur. PS: Of course, for the NV-RAM settings to persist, the battery in you...
