The USB mini port is the "only" way to give power to the ComosEX - the 4 pin connector gives the power to a connected floppy drive.
The other connector is only for connecting a modern USB-Keyboard or a mouse to the Mega ST without using a driver on the ST.
In the video section on Jookies homepage are some good videos about this. http://joo.kie.sk/?page_id=415
Hmm, okay bit of confusion here. I don't have mine installed yet, but I thought the 4 pin power connector was for internal
use, and the mini-usb port was for an external power connection. Thought I read that somewhere else or am I wrong?
Ok now have my CosmosEx powered and connected using the external power. To be able to see the device I have to connect it to the hard drive ASCI port on the back of my Mega ST 2, Ethernet and not using the IKDB injector as with this connected the original keyboard seems to work but the mouse gets stuck in the top left corner of the screen!
I have tried to set up the shared drive and an SD card but so far I am not having much luck. I have used the CE_CONF.PRG to setup as follows
ACSI config tool
id 0 = trans
id 1 = sd
id 3 to 7 = raw - not sure why but doesn't seem to matter for what I am doing so far!
First translated as G
Shared drive as P
Config Drive as O
Shared drive is enabled using cifs
server IP is valid
share is entered as Atarishared
Valid username and password defined
(The share is on a Netgear NAS drive and has been tested with the user id and password from a windows box)
Floppy config is enabled as drive 1 (Note my old diamond button drive doesn't rotate but the stepper motor is fine!)
I can open the Drive O no problem, when I add drive P it shows as an empty drive which I then copied a file to and that appears to be on the Raspberry Pi SD card not the SD in the external SD slot......
Not sure where I am going wrong but hoping for more help if possible as you guys seem to know stack loads!
Hope to add a PC floppy with the cable fix mentioned elsewhere on here if I can find a 34 pin male and female idc plus a spare bit of 34 way cable - might cut it off a spare PC cable but then need the male end so I don't need to damage the Atari original!
Update - OK cann now connect via Raspberry Pi and via CosmosEx Raspberry device to Netgear share but via nfs using the following (ip addresses permitted for read write access)
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo mount -v -t nfs -o nolock 192.168.1.84:/Atarishared /mnt/shared

Note - this also works from CosmosEx - just need to get the CosmosEx and Atari Mega ST2 talking again now!!
