Re: Problem with Gotek

I just got a gotek, too and it had a problem trying to work in indexed mode saying firmware didn't match or something. So I tried using the normal mode, I think, and it works like a normal floppy drive now which is really what I wanted anyway. Have you tried using different modes ?

Has anyone tried building the Mega 4000 graphics adapter for Mega ST

Ahh ok. So you can add another power source in case a bus card needs more power ?

Mega ST PSU jack

Do the Mega ST motherboards have two jacks for PSU ? If so, why are there two ? Can you use either or is the left one for some other purpose ?

WTB: Mega ST keyboard cap "1"

I'm missing just the "1" keycap the one next to the esc key, not the one on the keypad.

Let me know if you have a spare you'd like to sell.

Re: KCS Omega version 4 vs version 5

Thanks. I've read that you can buy version 5 from Dr. T for like $150 or so and that version 4 is basically free. I can't seem to find any descriptions of what's new in version 5 feature wise compared to version 4. I guess the only way to find out what version 5 is like is either buy the manual for ...

Sometimes video came on and computer worked ok then video would go all haywire, sometimes with black and white stripes. It helped when I pushed in all chips in sockets but the...

No. Just one key is missing from the keyboard. Someone sells individuals keys for 520 and 1040 ST, but I can't find anyone selling keys for the Mega ST keyboard.

Re: Is there a known issue with the Mega ST 4

Thanks for your suggestion. I took apart the whole computer and made sure there wasn't anything shorting and tried to resit some chips. Turns out one of the chips weren't sitted property -- I had to tap it in its socket and now the Mega ST 4 is working normally.

Thanks again.
