Re: dead Falcon

Have you got a jumper across... hmm.. pin 21-22 on the expansion port? Without it the cpu is disabled.

Re: Atari STe 1040 - Joystick fault

I can't really say there are any other "common" faults. Proper storage and regular reseating of the socketed components is usually all that is needed. Maybe replacing the CPU for a HCMOS version, since it seems to eradicate the "faulty DMA" that has people riled up every once in ...

Re: Emulate JagPad for MegaSTe?

If you read the ejp faq there is actually a way but it is probably not supported by either cosmosex or r0x zero. I'm curious, is there a way to support that , really ? Afaik nobody has done it (yet), but in theory there's nothing stopping it. The STE got the same dip switches as the Mega STE. You n...

Re: RAM upgrade

It's not a huge problem with software not working with 4mb RAM, and more or less all got patched versions floating around. There's also a special boot disk somewhere that reconfigure your ram size temporary that also works well. As for ram upgrade, probably the easiest is to use a 72 pin 4mb simm. T...

Re: Falcon diagnostic cart

You do know that you can get an empty atari original cartridge with shell for like $10 from best and b&c computervision. 2 programmed 27c256/27c512 let you have whatever cartridge you want. Not that I want to criticise the multi-carts, but sometimes keeping it simple really is the best way to go...

Re: Falcon dead CPU replacement

It fits in the expansion port just like CT60 and other accelerators, given the price I would be more inclined to try to get an accelerator instead of that. The TOS sockets are as such, not a bad idea actually, if you got an older TOS it's easier/cheaper to find 2 27c020 and burn TOS 4.04 than a 27c0...

Re: Adding a Hard Drive to your Megafile 44 explained

I would be concerned about the reliability of 20+ year old (40-200Mb) IDE hard disks to be honest. They're really past their service life. Also how would the power supply hold up to multiple hard disks? It's always been SCSI for ataris really, and SCSI drives have always been more reliable than IDE...

woah, lot of questions... You need an internal scsi interface to connect the hdd inside the mega ste. There is a connector just behind the ACSI port. The STE diag cart will do for some basic troubleshooting if you get the mega to start up, but if you can, the MSTE diag is better, obviously. UB1 and ...
