Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

I agree with siriushardware that defining this as a myth is an overstatement. Is is true that the problem seems to be rather complex, and probably there is a combinations of issues, apparently including indeed, pcb layout. But in many cases replacing the "bad DMA" fixes the problem. Is is...

Hi there, There are some useful apps that I want to use on my 1040STE with a gotek installed. I have .prg files for the apps on my PC so Im thinking the best way to get these onto my ST is to add them to a .st floppy disk image thats created using Hatari or something?

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: HxC External floppy cable, works as A and B

I was able to get the cable to work without changing any straps inside my 1040STF. The GoTek/HxC works well as drive B and the internal floppy is still Drive A. The only little issue I have is that I have no way to update the 'slots' in the HxC. I have to open my 1040STF and plug the HxC into the d...
