Catweasel MK3 PCI/Flipper

Postby rb » Sat Feb 28, 2004 12:47 am

hi

has anyone played around with this floppy controller?
if it is true that this thing will support 1200 formats chances are big that this could be used for emulation

cheers

It certainly does look impressive... and the price is not bad, considering the impressive feature list...

really no one that uses this for Atari ST disks? I am very interested in it since several of my original Atari ST gamedisks have stopped working i need to tranfer the still working ones to PC to preserve them.

Seems catweasel mk3 is no longer sold with SID functions anymore :(

Do you really need Catweasel for Atari ST-disks?
I thought that a "normal" PC could be used to make disk-images or to write them back to floppies?

I was told by the supplier after enquiring before parting with my cash that the Catweasel is only slightly better than the combined usage of Disk2FDI and Makedisk etc.

He didn't want to sell it me just for transferring Atari ST disks as he said it would be a waste of money etc.

Only if you got more than one system you want to transfer then it would be a worthwhile investment.

why bother transfering games to cd

its all been done before

look with google for atari cd roms
these work in a pc and you can make a fresh copy of the image's till your hearts content

still needs a floppy
better you just use a cable connection to the serial ports of the pc for any data transfer to hdd on the atari

and leave the images to the pc and a box of DD disks

if you get sick of the 1.44mb floppy {some wont work at 720k}
just plug an atari one into the pc and use it

I think it's more for the games that are lost in time and never got transferred to the PC.

Look on Brume's "Missing Games" list.
