Megafile + Satandisk

Postby tfdi » Tue Aug 16, 2011 1:05 pm

Hi guys,

Does anyone try to connect a Satandisk behind a Megafile 30 ?

I wanted to have my Satandisk behind my Megafile, megafile have ASCI 0, Satandisk have ASCI 1, i boot with hddriver 7.8, but hddriver recognize just the Megafile, not the satandisk. Of course, Satandisk is connected on the HardDisk IN port behind the Megafile.

If i connect only the Satandisk on the Atari, the Satandisk works perfectly, recognize on ASCI 1.

Someone has an idea ?

Shouldn't the ACSI of ST be connected on the ASCSI IN of MegaFile and then some other device (i.e. SatanDisk) on the ACSI OUT of MegaFile?

Anyway, SatanDisk didn't get very well along with other ACSI devices even if it was projected that it should. UltraSatan is better in these things.

Have you tried connecting the atari to theIn and the satan to the out?

Also maybe try with Atari HD Driver or ICD Driver?

although maybe HDDriver is best for sd card?

Oups ...

You're true ... I say anything ... Satandisk was connected on HardDisk OUT of course ... if it does the opposite nothing works.

I use Hddriver, perhaps i should try with another driver ?... someone have a link for ICD ? .... or a link for buying a UltraSatan ... :angel:

I just want to have 1 HD on ATARI STE and a second driver like Satan with SDCard for copying file from PC, or a UltraSatan with 2 Card will be fine ... but i don't find one .. :(

Although this thread is already older I have to ask a question: I'm currently thinking about how I can put my 2 Megafiles 30 out of service and instead buying and putting an UltraSatan into operation. Does anyone have experience with the UltraSatan on a Mega ST2? Is it possible to chain the Megafiles and the UltraSatan for easy data migration? Unfortunately nothing was mentioned in this thread in this regard ... In addition, I wonder if it is possible - similar to the Amiga using WHDLoad - to install games on the UltraSatan to use the floppies no longer.

There is an Image Runner by P. Putnik: http://atari.8bitchip.info/imgrun.php but I'd recommend going for Gotek/HxC as an external drive or, if you can afford, buying a CosmosEx, which is a HDD and FDD emulator.
