TT Video Interference

I'm experiencing video interference on my TT, and wonder what the causes could be. It is particularly an issue during floppy disk access for example. Is it my power supply, the need for more shielding, or even just the position of power cables in the case?

Thanks

Re: Last version of Logic Audio Falcon?

I was always hoping to find someone that could remove the dongle limitation from 2.5. I wanted to use it on at TT, and have several dongles btw, but due to timing differences it would rarely pass the copy protection check on most TTs. I think I only found one TT that would run Logic some of the time...

Re: Dave Small SST installed and (nearly) working

Mine was installed by Dave Small, and worked fine for a number of years. One day I turned it on and during it's rom checks it gets bombs. I can't remember the exact message at this point, but maybe some memory went bad or something. I never touched the installation prior to the failure :/ It will be...

Re: WANTED: Atari STbook

I have two ST Books but only one working power supply. As far as I was able to find out, it is a proprietary power supply. I can't really sell the ST Books until I get the power supply fixed. I may send it to a re-capping service since that is probably the issue.

Cheers

Re: Mega STE - Hard Drive Upgrade?

I believe the built-in controller is limited to 1gb. I have had good luck with a Seagate Hawk 50-pin SCSI 1gb drive. Compact Flash can also be done with a series of compatible adapters and the correct hard disk driver.

Re: Yamaha SCSI-IDE on Mega STE

As I mentioned, some removable CF cards seem to work fine, specifically the 2gb cards I have tested, while the 1gb version of the same brand and series does not work. An IDE hard drive will work, but the entire purpose of this effort is to get away from moving parts, and I'm fairly confident that ne...

Re: Is it possible to add a SCSI HD to a Mega STE?

AFAIK, the internal hard disk in the MSTE was never an ACSI drive mechanism (since I am not aware of such a thing). ACSI ports can be connected to RLL/MFM, SCSI, or newer SD host adapters, but the MSTE should have had an internal SCSI host adapter built-in. As such, the internal SCSI drive that fail...

I do not need to image the diskettes, but rather to read the individual files that could not be read on the Atari systems. Also, WindowsXP is not a requirement, as I have Windows98 and DOS systems available.
