Only four left; 'hot' and 'cakes' spring to mind.

Holly cow, they were gone during one night! I will put next 10 on the eBay in a week or two - I will wait for the user feedback (if they got the devices and it's not a scam) - I could be blocked by eBay or PayPal otherwise.

I guess there was slightly more demand for them than you expected? ;)

Market forces:-
Only one type of suitable product + only a limited supply of said product + queue of people waiting = a fast selling product (also known as panic buying, as in if you don't buy one now, you may never get one) :lol:
Falcon, Atari 520STFM, Atari 1040STE, more PC's than I care to count and an assortment of 8 bit micros (nearly forgot the Psion's)

The best option for you would be to register in our system:
http://mikro.umpc.sk/us_order/

The users will get notification e-mail when the devices go on eBay. And if you have some SMS notification of new e-mails enabled, you won't miss a thing! :)

This is amazing 8) as for the previous one they all gone in one night! Good for you. :D
For info. How many more do you have to sell?

Thanks again Jookie for this excellent product. I now got two and they works great. :cheers:
It is too bad I could not make it work with my old ICD board (I know it works with ICD Link2) to access my SCSI drives :(
Any plan about adding a small SCSI connector :roll: this would be great!

Talking about things comming I have "talked" with Pera today a great stuffs on the tube for USD. Should be able to have multiple 2GB bootable & DOS compatible partitions :wink: ...
Also 2GB access for Satan (proto works great on my "old" Satan)

There will be 15 more (last ones) after this, and they will be in auction, not for 'Buy it now' (as someone suggested here, on atari-forum).

Yeah, too bad that it doesn't work combined with every ACSI device (but it should, I don't see a reason why it shouldn't, but some measurements with that device might be helpful).

DrCoolZic wrote:Any plan about adding a small SCSI connector :roll: this would be great!


Well, the SCSI and IDE are getting more obsolete and harder to get, so I probably won't make an host-adapter for that... I would rather focus on the media and devices which you can actually buy in a PC shop (and probably still will be able to do so in 2 years from now on).

About your data migration from SCSI to a card - it might be better to buy a cheap SCSI controller for PC, make an image of that SCSI drive and if it's smaller then your SD card (smaller then 4 GB or 8 GB), then you could just write the image directly to the card - that might work, but I've never tried that.

Yes you are right SCSI is not really the future :wink:
It is just that I am frustrated of not beeing able to use my SCSI drives! I have more than 10 drives and some of them have a capacity of 16GB but unfortunately my ICD card is limited to 1GB only :(

I probably do not need to recover the content of the drives as I beleive I have already a backup on PC. But your idea of conecting the drives to PC and use image program like the one from Pera is a good idea. The image sw should be able to read directly from SCSI drives.

For the problem with my ICD card with USD, I am almost sure that this is a problem with the ICD card, because when I connect the USD on the ICD output port I do not see any activity on the USD led? So looks like the data are not correctly propagated to the output port?

I was hoping to use this for test of multiple devices for the new Pera driver. But I have been able to do some test using my old Megafile 20. I have also been able to connect Satan and UltraSatan drives at the same time (this one was important as apparently there is a problem of timeout under certain conditions on the Satan drive when using ICD extended command).
I have also bought another USD so I should be able to connect them at the same time (not tried yet).

£137!!!

I think I'll give that a miss. Were they added as auctions rather than 'buy it now' purely for profit reasons?

How much were they selling for originally?
