Re: External Floppy Problem When Gotek is Connected

Shugart/Atari D0=A:\, D1=B:\ I haven't found any need to connect the M0 line on my goteks(FlashFLoppy & HxC), just leave it open. Atari and plenty 3rdparties usually assume that drives for internal or external use are configured as D0. The external port can carry D0 and D1 for early st models wi...

Re: Atari 520 STM no video

Hooking up to a tv makes me think you want to use a scart cable. A removed modulator could possibly mean that there was no csync circuit installed after removal. Scart needs composite video(made by modulator) or csync signal to get a image on screen. Csync isn't a very complex circuit and can be fou...

Re: CosmosEx v1/v2 - Update

From my experience the ce_raspbian_stretch_2018-05-10.img release had issues with the usb hub on the V1. For the v1 i used the yocto distro and used the script to get it up to date. I prefered rpi-ce-run-real over ce_raspbian_2017-01-03, because it boots faster. Bad news is that you have to wait unt...

Re: CosmosEx v1/v2 - Update

Looks like the update zip is not on the website right now (404). Maybe the update is getting updated.

Re: CosmosEx v1/v2 - Update

I had issues with upgrading to the latest version on a CosmosEx V1. The raspbian and yocto releases were all breaking when updating. My fix to get the latest software/firmware on a V1? Follow jookies guide on: http://joo.kie.sk/?page_id=518 , after running this on a clean yocto distro i'm now all up...

Re: Drive swap on STe without cutting pins/tracks

I have never actually checked if the drive heads move simultaneously. I did notice that the drive motors spin together and with 2 goteks A and B, that both displays update the current track and disk side. I will check if the heads all move at the same time or not. I slapped some arduino jumper wires...

Re: Drive swap on STe without cutting pins/tracks

The way I got swappable drives working on MEGAST and MEGASTE was to separate and cut the DS0 wire in the ribbon cable.
And then i got creative by having 2x 3-dipswitchblocks. #1 with DS0, #2 with DS1 and let them switch between the cut ribbon cable and the 2 external DS's.

Re: MegaSTE floppy cable - twisted or straight?

Atari floppydrive connections are 1on1 from motherboard to drive.
I always mark the 1 side of motherboard connectors (floppy/scsi/acsi/serial) and I mark the drive pin1 on bottom/top/back of drives.

Re: Floppy drive replacement (expanding the theme).

My megaste came with a gotek(and buttonhole cut), i placed a sony mpf920 behind a really yellowed mitsumi atari st cover and after making room for the ejec button it fits relaxed. Perhaps it is missing a very important fact: I am trying to adapt a PC floppy disk in an ATARI ST. Other Atari models s...
