Ok, many thanks for this... I will get on with it as soon as I can.
Im hellish busy right now, getting the utility room converted back into a garage for my Harley to keep that safe over winter, and then I can get on with messing with the Ataris again.

Re: Retronic on my Falcon or TT never worked?

I got an (early) HxC USB, and indeed it's a "slave" USB device for a PC. The PC, using a dedicated software, serves disk image data via USB cable to the HxC drive in the retro computer. So the PC software must be running continuously along the retro computer, and you load and swap disks o...

Re: Retronic on my Falcon or TT never worked?

Assuming you’ve set the jumpers for ST mode Erm, where in the docs does it have the jumper info? next step is to run the HxC host application on a PC, hook up the HxC emulator to a free USB port on your PC and fire it up. It has Floppy pins, to connect it to a floppy port... It does NOT connect VIA...

Re: Amstrad CPC 664

Ah, I loved the 664. Quite a rare model, the 6128 just seemed the better and more popular option, so I think in many ways the 664 just seemed to be in a no mans land really... The price was too much for just a disk when all the games in shops were tape. The 6128 was seemingly worth the extra because...
