Re: GOEX for ST in the making

Yes, creating and using new floppy images is a right pain. It would be excellent if there were a button combination to generate a new blank image and switch to it, which you could then format in the usual way.

Re: GOEX for ST in the making

Actually FlashFloppy itself doesn't use HxC format for the floppies if run in native mode. There *IS* a compatibility binary you can put onto the drive to allow it to operate in an HxC-like way, however, but it's optional (and I prefer not to use it). In native mode it uses raw disk images, which su...

Re: Mega STE Mobo repair - small fault with cartridge port

For cleaning the contacts without damaging them or pushing them too far apart I find printer paper folded twice to be about the correct thickness. Soaking this in a bit of IPA (not ale :-) ) and gently and repeatedly pushing the flat paper edge into the slot will gently wear off any oxidation withou...

Re: Atari 520 STM no video

I'd also reseat the Shifter chip. My STM had video issues at one time and re-seating the Shifter fixed it.

I'm currently looking for a working or non-working drive mechanism for a long-button SF314 drive.

Well, after my previous message Brad said that they'd found a couple of ST(M) badges in the zip-lock bag with the STFM badges in it and he said that he'd put those in the order instead... Fantastic!

When the parcel arrived today they were just SFTM badges. Oh well.

I can confirm the information embedded within this thread on retro-brightening ( http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=88&t=28406 ) that the following paint is as close a match to ST plastic which has not been affected by light as you'll ever get: Rust-oleum Painter's Touch Stone Grey Satin...

Thanks. I've added a couple of 520STFM badges to my Best order for a refurbed SF-314 drive mechanism (long button). I can use one to test how easy it is to disguise the small 'FM' next to the 'T'

Re: WANTED: ST(M) badge.

Given the lack of availability of 520ST badges I may have to go for an 520STFM version and hope that it has the same dimensions.

Unfortunately both are STFM ones and not ST/STM so they may not fit (and have the 'FM' on them).

Thank-you for the offer.

Hmm... It's tricky dealing with the vendor, even if he does read your e-mail. Also the shipping charge would be HUGE! Still, it's an option.

WANTED: ST(M) badge.

I'm looking for a replacement case badge for my 520STM as the paint has come off the old one.

I'm guessing that it's a different size to the STFM one.

Does anyone know where I might be able to buy one?

Re: Can you identify this 520STM RAM upgrade?

I can see if I can take a picture of the adapter board which pushes into the socket later. Under the shifter is just a modified socket with wires soldered to the pins.

I can't see the underside of the board pictured as it's firmly stuck onto some cardboard and I don't want to risk breaking anything.
