Re: IDE HD transfer

In the end, the way forward was to find a machine with a space SATA connector; the IDE to SATA connector works well, but the USB bridge I was using for laptops (most of my machines!) wasn't happy. Once spinning on a spare SATA port on my NAS, I was able to use dd to rip the full drive into an image ...

Re: IDE HD transfer

What mfro said. If this is the original drive in your Falcon it's 25+ years old, and will draw a lot more current than modern drives. Does it spin up correctly? Or does it spin up and down repeatedly? Alright, tried the SATA-IDE interface via an external power source. The drive still spins and the ...

Re: IDE HD transfer

Hm, could be something in that, yeah.

The drive is pulling whatever the USB interface can provide. The drive itself does spin up and the heads move so it has sufficient power to run the actual drive mechanism. But yeah, maybe I should figure out how to pull power from elsewhere.

Re: IDE HD transfer

Yeah, my problem is a step or two before that. Various hosts detect that a drive has been connected, but then absolutely cannot get useful information from the drive itself. There's a bunch of failed results, illegal requests, etc, in the dmesg log above. The system ultimately decides it's a huge de...

Re: IDE HD transfer

Hello; jumping into this recent topic rather than creating my own, I have an old Falcon drive that I'd like to capture while it still spins. Tonight I unstuck the drive heads that probably haven't moved in 10+ years. The wonderful part is that the Falcon boots with this drive now! I've used a USB to...

Re: NetUSBee TOS driver

So my main questions: am I "doing it right"? I think so, on the USB side. On the network side, you may want to see these links: http://www.mega-ste.com/netusbee_n_sting.htm https://bitbucket.org/sqward/uip-tools/downloads/ http://hardware.atari.org/manuals/netsoft.htm Nice, thanks! Now I think abou...

Re: NetUSBee TOS driver

I took a little more time to look at this tonight. Starting point: cleaning the contacts on the cartridge point. Don't mix and match drivers from different places. The latest is https://www.atari-forum.com/download/file.php?id=42843 . Read carefully the instructions. There is a known conflict with S...

Re: NetUSBee TOS driver

UIP has its own TCP/IP stack and never runs with any STik/STing compatible stack running. It is either this or that. Boot your machine clean without any AUTO stuff, then UIP should run fine. Oh, that makes sense; thanks! If I run with no AUTO and uipV310.tos, it bails with an error here . With a li...

Re: NetUSBee TOS driver

Hello! Sorry for waking an old thread, but this seems a related place for my questions. Happy to throw into a separate thread if that's better. I've got a Netusbee from Lotharek's store. I'm setting it up in TOS 2.06 first, and from there I might branch out into other setups. I'm on an STe (4MB RAM,...

Re: Building Hatari 1.9 w/ SDL2 for raspberry pi

1 FPS frame rate sounds like SDL problem. Maybe 3D driver (Mesa?) below it uses SW scaling instead of HW acceleration? Yes, felt that way to me too! I took another look tonight, and yes, there's an experimental GL driver for the Pi that allows hardware acceleration. That's what was missing! It's bu...

The aim is to use SDL2 to get screen scaling for ST emulation.

Building Hatari 1.9 w/ SDL2 for raspberry pi

Hi! I want to use a spare RPi as a Hatari box plugged into my TV. Debian's currently carrying Hatari 1.8 -- which runs great! -- but I want Hatari 1.9 for the SDL2 scaling goodness to fill my TV screen. Building Hatari 1.9 is easy, but the resulting binary turns out to not be so performant. As in, u...
