Follow-up question - How do I delete the many posts of the same question that I just created by accident?

ICD issue using MicroCosmo

I have a Mega STE and a MicroCosmo. I tried partitioning an SD with a copy of ICD 6.5.5. on the A Floppy that I loaded off of Jookie's site. Couldn't format the drive without running ICDBoot first (It should be running already if the floppy is in the drive no?) After partitioning the drive I tried r...

Re: Powering options for the CosmosEX Mini/MicroCosmos?

I know this is an old thread but another option is to find a switchable powerbar - I use an 8 outlet switch in a rack setup - I use my ataris with my music setup - I plug my ataris and CosmosEx devices into different power ports. This allows me to turn my CE units on first so they bootup and then I ...

Thanks Sound Doctor - I have used this in the past but didn't realize you could extract files directly from the floppy without using an emulator. I'll check it out tonight.

TAF software collection - floppies

A while back, I responded to a Kijiji ad about a box of Toronto Atari Federation floppies (ST programs) that someone wanted to find a home for. I picked them up (2 heavy boxes) - put them in my basement with plans of archiving them. A year later I am cleaning out the basement and purging - the box h...

Thanks to all -great pix!

But... A G4 quicksilver or G5 case might look a lot sexier...

Re: Where to find How To documentation on Re-Casing STe

Is there anyone else out there that has maybe stumbled across someone's documentation on re-casing an ST? I've seen quite a bit of insides of cases and such but nothing that details the process.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Where to find How To documentation on Re-Casing STe

Unfortunately there is so much variance it is seat of the pants Mcgyvering for the most part unless you can find a purpose built solution (Like desktopper etc). I've done a couple and it was all down to trial and error. Was there a size of case (besides the purpose built ones that are impossible to...

Where to find How To documentation on Re-Casing STe

I have no soldering talents and very little experience poking around the insides of computer housings. (I did rebuild an SE/30 from 2 non working ones but no more skill than replugging wires and screwdriving was involved.) I have looked through this forum and googled several searches and have yet to...

Re: ICD formatting problem [+/- ok now] &network problem [fixed]

Question - as the CE_DD driver doesn't always boot up (I have the CE drive as 1 and the SD card as 0) - can I copy a version to the bootable harddrive portion of my SD card? will that work? It should work, but I still have to solve the cold boot issue, which might prevent your CE_DD not being loade...

Re: ICD formatting problem [+/- ok now] &network problem [fixed]

OK - It turns out that my CosmosEx didn't like the USB charger I was using. Swapped it out for another one and all of a sudden I stopped having problems - sometimes the USB keyboard didn't work. Also - I guess it pays to try different SD cards out - found a Kingston 4Gb SDHC that works. Finally have...

Re: ICD formatting problem [+/- ok now] &network problem [fixed]

Just read this thread - I've had similar problems. Both network and partitioning issues.I will swap out my USB charger to see if it helps my network issues. I've partition an SDHC card with ICD off a floppy drive several times but my Atari STe doesn't see them. I'm thinking the drive is too large (1...

Re: CosmosEx - new device for your Atari ST

Share some folder from that machine, use simple sharing, allow public access for everyone on that folder (not safe, but you won't have some critical stuff in that folder, right?). Then connect CE to network, assign ACSI ID to CE_DD (to make the CE_DD driver get loaded on start), configure shared dr...

Yes. I've tried transferring the image of the ICD Pro SD to 2 different SD cards. But they don't seem to show up.

Thanks. It was listed as shipped on Monday. I will post when it arrives. I'm assuming that I will have to alter the case if I want it to replace my floppy drive. - has anyone done a thread or post about that? Would rather know what others have done before I attack the case with a dremmel tool.

Re: CosmosEx - new device for your Atari ST

I ordered mine last weekend. Could anyone who has ordered one in Canada let me know how long it took to receive it and if there were any problems with duties or taxes?
Thanks!
