Re: STE repair

Ok I think this is the key Tzok.

https://ibb.co/MBWSgXS

I think this trace is the Address 17 line that is supposed to go to W104 pin 1..

I have run a jumper from that Via to W104 pin 1 .. seems all addresses are now linked.

I am going to try it.

Do I need a floppy installed to try this??

WHy? I am using 28pin roms.. so nothing will touch the end of the socket. so nothing should be an issue there with a mangled socket.

Hi, picked up a mega with a mechanical keyboard.

Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Pre-announcing the Lightning ST - USB & IDE for STs

Mega STE has internal ASCI, so you can use the UltraSatan either externally or internally. I don't see the requirement for IDE when there is such a solution available. That is a funny response. ..because the exact same thing could be said about any ST machine they all come with an external asci por...

Re: How to create a RAW USB drive?

Right.. I do too.. but the question was.. because the manual says you can.. How would you create a RAW USB drive? The SD is simple because only 1 device could be the SD card. You assign it an ID number.. and the HDD program will see it.. but with USB you could have 4 or more USB drives in the cosmos...
