UltraSatan Problems

Postby Coxside » Thu Oct 04, 2018 4:23 pm

I've received an UltraSatan from Lotharek, along with an SD card, but can't get it to work!

Are there any instructions on the internet that I can consult?

This PDF states:
Note that the SatanDrive has the following limitations:
    The maximum size of SD card is 1GB,
    Only one SD card can be plugged,
    And SatanDrive only works with the HDDRIVER hard disk driver.


Is this still true? I have an 8Gb card - the smallest new stock I can find for sale at a reasonable price these days. Seems to work fine for me.
HDDRIVER only? Is this to boost sales? (/sarc) I'm running ICD right now, and it seems fine, too.

I've not tested the single card statement yet. There's a package waiting to be opened for me to do that.

So is this all out of date?

Also, Coxside, if you need to, i've found that a 1.44Mb HD floppy with the HD hole covered up with tape (both sides), formatted to 720k on the ST can be read and written by a USB floppy on a Windows 7 machine (not tested Win10). Even though CMD/Win7 will not format it to 720K. I'd try the free ICD driver on a floppy with the drive plugged in and run the utils to see if the card is formatted, etc.
