Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Glad that it is working for you. No doubt that it is a great idea to use SD-IDE adapter and SD cards. I suspected my SD-IDE adapter was a walking wounded. I cannot test any more as I may have thrown it away in a fit of fury. What I remembered was that the same SD card was slower when using my SD-IDE...

Re: Falcon CF Card Partitions Gem & PC /w HDDriverr

The reason i say my HDD configuration on my Falcon is because of this sentence. idea to add a second CF card. One will be permanent, the other swappable! if you add a 2nd CF card.... use it as the one for file transfer between PC and Atari. if you set format to FAT32, it seems that you do not need t...

Re: Falcon CF Card Partitions Gem & PC /w HDDriverr

It is indeed a Master-slave setup. Nothing magical here. The autoboot is always from my TOS format C drive, to boot up Mint. The card that moves from Atari to PC and back is the SD card. I am using a CF adapter for SD card. I am not sure who is doing byte swapping, but I think it must be HDDriver as...

On my Falcon, I have 3-way ide cable with one end a 44pin-CF adapter and then a CF-SD adapter. I format SD to Fat32 and do all files transfer in Mint.
