This does not mean "Pal, sorry machine only".
So, it is not calling you PAL, LAD, BLOKE, DUDE or whatever.
It says 'Sorry, "PAL" machine only.'
You, PAL, probably have an NTSC machine.
That might be the problem.
I just guessed that as I have a PAL machine myself.
So I cannot reproduce the error, and I am too stupid to know how to fix it.
But the 50/60hz switch usually should help in some of those cases.
No, what happens with the 50/60Hz switch is the ST is put into 60Hz PAL mode (A non-standard mode than some DVD players use to display NTSC movies at the correct frame rate - also, nearly all PAL VCRs with NTSC playback use this feature as it can be done without having to build in a standards convertor)
I assume the reverse is also true, and that an NTSC model can be put into 50Hz NTSC? Havig never seen an NTSC Atari ST I couldn't say.
