Re: Extended monitor option

There's a Steem option I never tried before, "Extended monitor" with various resolutions higher than 640x400. Hi Steven, look at this screenshot made with Steem (sized down from 2.3MB to 493KB by saving it as a JPEG), isn't it beautiful! A0656_001.JPG It's about time you can have more tha...

Re: Megafile 44 + extra HD

No luck this time. Can't see what dipswitch 1 is exactly doing to make the MF44 accept the HD. I was hoping to see if some pins were connected in a different way between the two modes. I just don't have the knowledge to understand how this is done. Probably with some signal given off by any of the i...

Re: Megafile 44 + extra HD

Thanx Spiny, I should be happy with this result an start doing other things now like connecting midi and audio cables. I've go a lot of equipment that I like to make some noise. But there is still one thing that puzzles me. I measured up how both connectors are connected to each other using my multi...

Megafile 44 + extra HD

This is why I love this forum: So I have a Megafile 44 with 4 cartridges, bought for only 10 euro's about 18 months ago. ID set to 2. Some time later I bought a Mega STE with a working 52MB Quantum HD that died without warning the next day. See my previous postings. There are not so many yet, but mo...

Re: Second DMA port

Somebody's soldered a memory upgrade in there - the 2 simms would likely take your machine from 2MB to 4MB (Can't see the numbers on the chips). Yes, that's it. Thanx Dal. As already mentioned, it was sold as a 2 meg ST, but sysinfo told me it has 4 meg. I just couldn't figure ot how it was done. I...

Re: Second DMA port

you can have 8 dma ports adding a decoder to the local mfp Allright, now I don't know anything about 'local mfp' and 'decoder' but I found this: http://dev-docs.atariforge.org/files/MC68901.pdf so I guess I'll be busy tonight. But if you can fill me in a bit in advance I would be grateful. i don't ...

Re: Ultrasatan (internal) and Atari STe

Will this allow the internal and external ACSI ports to be used simultaneously? I only managed to have an external Ultrasatandisk and an ICD SCSI link (ICD Micro ST or Link97) working next to eachother without any problem connected to the external and internal ASCI ports (or connectors, 'port' seem...

Re: Second DMA port

Made my first own J17-cable last night (will call it 'J17-cable' from now on). Works great, the only thing is I had to use a 26pin Ide connector from the local shop because 24pin connecters are hard to get by. The 26pin Ide fits easily over the J17 24 pins on the Mega ST mobo. Only the metal case wo...

Re: Second DMA port

It is wrong to call it "Second DMA port" . It's just second DMA connector. Sorry for being not accurate in naming this topic in a for Atari standards comprehensible and correct way. (It behaves different than the daisy chainable megafile connectors though). Anyway, whatever you call it, f...

Re: Second DMA port

The problem with the Swiss/German TOS 1.02 has to do with the size off the partitions on the Ultrasatandisk. I forgot about that but surfing this forum I stumbled upon Jookie's question about it. http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14869&p=127412#p127412 The US had partitions of ...

Re: Second DMA port

On the Atari Megafile / SH205 there is a 'Daisy Chain' type system for ASCI but how to implement a splitter I do not know. It would be useful as I would like to run ATARI ST SCSI & CosmosEX/UltraSatan side by side Well, this is what it is. A splitter, or rather a DMA merger. With this passive 2...

Re: Second DMA port

Pin lay out J17 - DMA cable: Looking at the J17 connector, right behind the 19pin DMA connector on the motherboard and from above with the front of the Mega ST towards you upper left corner, there are 2 rows of pins. Top row are, from left to right the even numbers: 2 - 4 - 6 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 14 - 16...

Re: Second DMA port

Update updated... It is possible to have a 2nd DMA port coming from the 'J17' connectors. I used the "old" 24pin IDE to 19pin DMA cable that was connected to the 120MB Maxtor (see previous posting). The female DMA is mounted on a metal bracket screwed to the metal case inside and which fit...

Second DMA port

Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to have 2 DMA (19 pin) ports on an Atari (Mega) ST. I'm using a cased Ultrasatandisk and an external Iomega ZIP100 connected with a Link97. For instance, both devices can be placed in a chain behind a Megafile but not in front and not at the same time and I w...

Re: SatanDisk and Mega STe

Hello, many moons later I hope this thread is still alive somehow. Recently (yesterday) i've installed a IBM Ultrastar 2.1 GB harddrive into my MSTE which had a 52MB Quantum HD that died the day after I bought the MSTE a couple of months ago. As I have read on this forum, it happened before. Of cour...
