CosmosEx together with internal IDE devices.

Postby Atarieterno » Thu May 25, 2017 7:11 pm

Hello;
I have a TT with IDE card "Thunder", I have connected a CF of 4 Gby and has 8 partitions that work correctly.
If I externally connect the CosmosEx to the ASCI port, the boot priority recognizes the IDE device first and then the ACSI, but the CosmosEx SD card partitions appear on the desktop and I can not open them.
Anyone have experience in this topic? Are the letters of the partition units colliding?
Thanks for the attention.

It's clearly a driver/software problem. Hardwarewise ACSI & IDE has no connection, and from what I can read about thunder, it uses the same method as all standard IDE interfaces on Atari, such as used on F030 etc.

What driver are you using?

Long shot, HDDriver allows partition letters to be reserved for removable devices. Something in that setting?

Thank you very much for the answers.
The problem has been solved by following this sequence:
1- The IDE device: CF partitioned and with its driver.
2- Turn on the CosmosEx with an unpartitioned SD.
3- Partition the SD with the same driver that has the CF, and also install the driver on its first partition.
4- Reset the TT. Now the letters of each partitioned unit appear correctly, but with a maximum of 14 units (TOS limitation) and the others are lost (2 units, in my example).

Best regards.

It should work properly without all that hassle. TOS prevents multiple autoboots from v. 2.06, On lower TOS versions drivers do it normally. It is to avoid likely conflicts, confusion. Although, I never tried it on TT, where IDE adapter is very rare, so may be that no measures against multiple autoboots when IDE is present. Can you say us what harddisk partitioner/driver SW is in question ?

Hello;
Surely you're right and you do not need to follow this protocol, but before that I had that mistake because of the ICD drivers with Peter Putnik, I do not know. Only PPs drivers and all works perfectly, I have 14 partitions with 500 Mby each and compatible with the PC to exchange data (bye to storage problems, XD).
Thank you.

PP - that would be me :-) ICD drivers are only for ACSI , as I know, and no TOS/DOS compatible partitioning. Not to blame them, it was not updated some 2 decades.
