Re: Reading an Atari Compact Flash on Mac/Windows

No problem mate - hard to keep all the info straight sometimes - I know I have
to double-check things all the time.

PS and I *still* get things wrong! :)

Re: Reading an Atari Compact Flash on Mac/Windows

Hmm, sorry - that's actually not correct. The Mega ST4 that runs DarkForce has 512 meg partitions, 8 of them, including the boot partition, and that's under TOS v1.04. That's on a 4 gig SCSI hard drive. (HDDriver software) Been running like that since the early 90's. Very reliable, considering how m...

So many great games - make sure you try'em all! There are literally
dozens (maybe hundreds?) of "what's your fav Atari ST game" topics

Re: Reading an Atari Compact Flash on Mac/Windows

Crazy question but are you actually running MINT? If not, I wouldn't use whatever option triggered that warning. Not CF but on the SDcards I use, I always pick the dual compatibility option with HDDriver. Also, IIRC, HDDriver has the option to auto partition a source into fairly equal amounts. HTHs,...

Re: Guide: Sharing Data from an Ultra Sata SD Card on Linux

Old thread but I've noticed that for whatever reason (I'm using Kubuntu linux) some kernels support stuff "out of the box" and some don't. Point being, if Atari hard drive support isn't compiled into the kernel from the start, you'll most likely have to re-compile your kernel and add that ...

Re: We Love Atari (Volume One)

I'm mostly interested in the 2nd volume as I never owned any 8-bit Atari system. If I may ask, how many more books of the first volume do you need to sell before considering printing the second volume? Same here - I'm buying volume one (I actually do have an 8 bit background and 1 Atari 800Xl still...

That's nice :) Are you aware if there's decent list of telnet based BBS systems somewhere (Atari, Amiga etc) ? Go to AtariAge and under the 8bit section look for the permanent message base, "Atari 8bit BBS's". Doctor Clu there maintains a list that is updated periodically although you may...
