Hi,

When the Atari-ST was "actual" I was using that machine very much for word-processing, spread, music, development, gaming a.s.o.
Meaning I have a huge software collection, manuals and almost all magazines.

I would like to get replace that stuff digitally, I mean PDF's of manuals and ST-images of the disks.

So my question is, where can I find

images of disks (Software, Magazine disks, Public Domain disks)
PDF's of manuals
PDF's of magazines


I tried "Sives-Rutherford FTP (Download)" but unfortunatly that one doesn't seem to exist anymore.
I prefer FTP's because it's a lot easier downloading with an FTP-client.

I someone can point me in the right direction towards an uttermost complete site !

Thanks

RetroPDFs has a few Atari ST magazines (complete collections) available in PDF format. They are usually quite good with the seeding of their torrents too.

https://retropdfs.wordpress.com/current ... llections/
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Indeed, seems to be huge !
But I really need an alternative (i.e. not browser) access

Thank you folks !

Is already helping me a lot.
Of course, any further links a.s.o. are still welcome :-)

It's my intention to consolidate what I have (on disks and paper) with what I can download.
Just need first to find out a decent (trustable) way to make images from those ST-formatted disks on my Windoze

Don't want to loose (and trash) anything, my AtariST stuff is to precious

I grabbed the ST Format one 2 weeks ago and the same night I posted the link, I grabbed the smaller ST-Amiga Format torrent too. Didn't have any problems at all.

Yes, the ST Format is the only one that works for me too. Managed to download it
The ST-Amiga Format and other ST-mags don't work

I have a question that seems related to the one that started this post.
I recently put together all of the software documentation I collected over my active Atari ST, Mega ST, and Falcon 030 years and entered it into a spreadsheet. There are close to sixty titles. It is mostly utility, games, and productivity software, with some graphics and music titles as well.
I would like to find out if any of this stuff is not already available to the community, and if so contribute it somehow.
Are there any people who keep track of the software titles available?
If it matters, most of the stuff I have is in English. I worked for a computer store in Virginia that sold Atari products when I was going to college.

Thanks for any pointers,

Scott C.

I think a first step is to publish your list of programs and manuals, because I do not know if there is a global librarian but we are many users that we collect, preserve and share the Atari material each one in its specialty (music, games, graphics, etc).

The list I have is for software documentation in my possession. I believe I have the media for all of these, but still need to confirm it. The thornier question is whether all of the disks are still readable. I learned the hard way last year that not all of the old floppies still work. I purchased a new floppy drive mechanism to rule out a hardware related problem.

Here's the list. I checked ST Essential and found some of them there, so those are marked.
