Re: XF551 360K format

Update: I cleaned the drive and also tried the Hyper+XF ROM upgrade. I still cannot format to 360K. There must be something wrong with the mechanism. The drive works fine as long as I don't try to use a double sided format. It is so fast with the Hyper+XF. I am going to try a Teac FD-55BR mechanism ...

Re: XF551 360K format

I tried removing the capacitors from the sio on the 130XE as suggested by some others, but there was no change. I am using double sided, double density disks. Hopefully the cleaning kit will do the trick when it arrives. If not I'll look for another mechanism.

Atariwriter Plus Spartados Side2

I would like to use Atariwriter Plus with my Side2 cart and 130XE (stock for now). I think it must conflict with the memory management in Spartados or something like that. It just locks up when I try to run it, even with the x command. I'm sure I can dig for the answer, but I'm hoping someone can he...

XF551 360K format

I just got an XF551. I had SIO trouble with it at first, but I re-flowed the solder pads at the SIO connectors and that is all fixed now. It works fine for standard and enhance 1050 formats, but it fails every time when formatting to 360K. I have tried MyDos and Spartados. I have a kit on the way to...

Re: Midex Falcon

Thanks for the information. I'll take a look at MROS. I believe I may be using a newer version than was original to CAF. My guess is that the Midex+ and driver are somehow incompatible for 060, but it should work fine for 030. The latency surprises me.

Midex Falcon

I was able to purchase a Midex+ that has been modified for the Falcon. I'm interested in any experience others have had using the Midex+ with the Falcon. In my case it works in 030 mode with midexfal.drv in the mros folder, but there is a terrible midi lag (I haven't done a lot of testing yet). In 0...

Re: CTPCI and USB card

It looks to me like the firmware gives this message (the message is in the same format/presentation as what you get when hot plugging a USB flash drive). Fortunately the message only shows one time.

CTPCI and Demos

For the few demos I have tried so far on my CTPCI Falcon, the output is directed to the monitor connected to original videl. Is there a way to direct output to the monitor connected to the CTPCI/Radeon? Also, the documentation I have been able to find (not much) does not seem to match what I am seei...

Re: Taskbar Date and Time

I tested again.
With boot config using "/" I see only the month. With "." or "-" I see the date and time correctly.
With CT60 CPX "/" displays everything correctly!
Some problem related to boot config.
Thanks!

Taskbar Date and Time

I've been setting up a Falcon with the CTPCI, and I have an odd problem with Taskbar. When I display the date and time, it displays the month only at the very right of the Taskbar (12 for December). If I display the date only, it still displays the month only. If I display time only, it shows the fu...

Re: CTPCI and Realtek 8139D

@JoeAtari: lspci (and other "MinT executables") are intended to run in a UNIX-like environment, which is not part part of FreeMinT snapshot. E.g. lspci should be started from a shell (sh or bash) and exepts the executable "gzip" in path /bin/ or /usr/bin/ for extracting the data...

Cased cards at this point: I used a mini ATX case and drilled holes and added standoffs so that I could place the PCI card riser just right. I'm using a standard ATX power supply, so this also gave me a place to house the power supply. All the switch and LED wires are also routed into the case (I'm ...

Re: CTPCI and Realtek 8139D

The firmware is as posted by Ektus. I use a custom jtag cable and the flash tool provided by Didier. No matter how I edit my photo, it is posting upside down. Sorry about that! The vendor ID is 0x10EC. The Device ID is 0x8169. It is probably the wrong device! Thanks!
