Re: CF setup

Ok so it looks hopeful that my firebee is back up and running correctly.

I’ve left it on overnight and will test again in the morning but everything so far looks good.

Thanks Mathias and Vido for your assistance with it.

Hi Mathias,

Yes I was. I gather you mean the ones from the firebee.org website as noted above?

Re: CF setup

OK so my fingers are crossed at the moment as I seem to have it working with the 16GB CF card. 8O Hopefully fixed but I cannot remember exactly which files I flashed to get it to this stage. :shrug: Copying files to the CF seems fine for the moment so hopefully it will stay that way. Nope that was s...

Re: CF setup

Sorry GB :oops: It's a no go on the hard drive. Fails when trying to edit the boot sequence in SBOOT during the boot process. Either this drive is not liked or something in the flash isn't right still. I've followed the instructions here http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=32159&...

Re: CF setup

OK Some progress (I think) I managed to track down a 4MB IDE drive which seems to format and work. (Most of my old gear runs on CF or SD cards) So using Windows to partition it as 4x FAT partitions it does boot and reads fine. It can copy from the IDE to SD (Drive C to A) but will not write. If I tr...

Re: CF setup

With the CF card hooked up via the IDE port I get the same sort of problems. CF boots and then fails (Tried with 3 different CF cards) After a bit it fails to correctly pick up the CF card and just displays random characters. It will boot to TOS without the CF and the SD card does appear to work fin...

Re: CF setup

OK so the CF looks fine in Gparted (on a Ubuntu machine). Put back in the Firebee and it got half way through booting then failed. Now it only shows "Magnetic Disk error" I was thinking maybe it was the power supply so swaped that for a 13.8v 2.5A one. No change. I have a few 4GB CF cards ...

Re: CF setup

The card is toast as far as I can tell. Gparted wont access it at all.

The replacement card was working but has failed after half an hour. I need to check it tomorrow but I think my firebee may be eating cf cards or I’m just having bad luck.

CF setup

OK so my CF card has died and I've lost everything. :evil:

So how do I partition the new CF card and what do I need?

Is it a 500MB Fat16 partition and the balance a Ext2 partition for MINT?

Re: Pak68/3 32MHz on eBay

No there is a 68000 CPU with it as well as the 68030. It has a jumper which allows fallback to 68000 and standard TOS.

It’s not pictured as I did not have it fitted at the time.

Sorry Rustynutt if I brought your old one. Yes this wasn't working when I got it. :D There is currently a FRAK and a PluPa on eBay (not mine). Was tempted but just can't see myself using the Pak enough to justify it. BTW I think I may have the required GAL's here somewhere for the FRAK and maybe eve...

Pak68/3 32MHz on eBay

I've just listed my second (and final) Pak68 on eBay for anyone interested.

Start price is £1 so it's up to the bidders what it goes for.

Re: Falcon mods?

OK so after a bit more digging it seems the 40MHz crystal mod at U65 is following this http://joska.duckdns.org/cpu_accel/ modification by Peter Green.

The tracks are cut as best I can tell in exactly the same places by the CPU and floppy connector.

Re: Falcon mods?

Actually with the 32MHz crystal in place by the DSP wouldn't this clash with the 40MHz crystal or are they not connected or can be separated?

I note that usually there isn't a crystal in U65.
