With the ACSI cable connected, the existing harddrive got problems so I guess there is something with them together that is not working
Without the ACSI cable connected, I tried to put a ST image on a USB stick and boot with that installed, but nothing happened, so that didn't work either.
So I guess I must always have the ACSI cable installed and can not have any other harddrives attached?
I found one video on your site there you powered on the CE first and after 13 seconds, turned on the ST, but how can I do that? With the power button on my Atari, everything is powered on at once.
OK, so first few questions:
- did you get a full device (with Raspberry Pi inside), or did you install Raspberry Pi on your own?
- Disconnect all cables from CosmosEx except power cable, turn on the power switch, and describe what happens
The ACSI cable is not required for it to work (it should start up without any cables). You can have other hard drives while you have this one, but:
- all the ACSI IDs of CosmosEx must be different than ACSI ID(s) for other hard drive(s) located on ACSI
- not all ACSI hard drives seem to work together with CosmosEx on ACSI bus (and I have no idea about the IDE interface on top of your CPU - it shouldn't be a problem, but who knows?)
