FS: Falcon 030

I have a Falcon for sale here in the US, it has 14megs of ram and what looks to be a 80? meg toshiba HD in it. I bought this off of epay back in 2006 (I think) and only plugged it in long enough to install Geneva and Neodesk on it. It's been in a box since then. I hate to part with it but I have a M...

Supera Color Box interference?

Below is a photo showing the bands of color which are moving left to right on my screen. I just hooked up my MegaSTE using pin 2 through a RCA jack and ground to the composite input of the Supera Color. It was better yesterday but now the banding is very visible and the icons seem to "tear" a little...

Re: Running your system with Ultrasatan or Satandisk

I finally managed to get two good cards formatted for use as STE hd's and one for transfers. I did all three on a satandisk, but they work in the Ultrasatan. I think the key (for me anyway) is to ignore the error messages given by HDDriver and TOS and just do what the instructions say. I am going to...

Re: Running your system with Ultrasatan or Satandisk

i have been using either the Ultra or the Satandisk, not together. I am using the satandisk cable as I suspect that the ultra cable is messed up. Now that you say the cards should NOT be formatted on the PC, I wonder if this is part of the problem. Some of the guides say to format the cards in the P...

Re: Running your system with Ultrasatan or Satandisk

I did hot swap a card in the bottom slot of the UltraS and try to "install device". It won't see the contents. I'll have to switch back to the Satandisk to create the cards, I guess. I think I mentioned before.... what are your ASCI ids. They cannot be the same. They also need to match with the one...

Re: Running your system with Ultrasatan or Satandisk

I did disable the autofolder hddriver and my one card still works, so that is at least one thing. It should then detect any hard disk on your system... tos screen with some detected drive etc will flash on your screen. Then the desktop comes back on. Now, go to "Install Device" and you should see a...

Re: HDDriver not installing

I believe it is an issue with my Ultrasatan, not HDDriver. My regular Satandisk works, the Ultra is flakey.

Re: Running your system with Ultrasatan or Satandisk

I am still not sure which is doing what. My UltraS acts differently than my Satandisk. I have not been able to successfully create a working card with the Ultra, only the Satandisk. I am using that card in the Ultra now. I am so concerned about loosing my one working card that I am not taking chance...

Running your system with Ultrasatan or Satandisk

This may seem like an obvious question but I've not had my STE set up for years and years. I've got my satandisk working with one card, which I am going to put neodesk on and whatnot. Now, if I want to have multiple sdcards with different setups on them, I should config each on it's own with icons a...

Re: HDDriver not installing

The satandisk works on id number 0. My ultrasatan worked on both cards but apparently it is bad to keep your current boot card in the top slot whilst trying to format the bottom card.

I will try cable swapping tomight and see of the Ultrasatan gets better.

Re: HDDriver not installing

Are the Ultrasatan and regular Satandisk cables identical? I was going to try swapping them but don't want to fry my working SD.

Re: HDDriver not installing

Ok, apparently it is the Ultrasatan. I removed it and instead used a regular Satandisk and it seems to be working fine. So there must be a cable issue or something. I did take the USd apart and inspected the board and cable but until I get my meter I cannot check for bad connections. I guess I can m...

Re: HDDriver not installing

Once again I followed Jookie's instructions to the letter. This time, I clicked TOS 1.04 compatability and started with a 16mb C partition, the remainder divided equally from the 2gb sandisk. All was ok until I rebooted and reran hdutil to initialize the partitions. It hangs at that point once initi...

Re: HDDriver not installing

It's a MEGA STE with 2.06. I was going with 256mb partitions. I had been trying the C partition as 16mb but it didn't seem to matter. I set the partition compatability at "1.04" or higher.

Re: HDDriver not installing

All my sdcards were brand new. The wierd thing is that I can write to the partitions but not boot from them. HDDriver will hang if I tell it to install the hddriver.prg on the boot disk. As far as the hidden file, is there a hidden file within Hddriver that is fouling things up? It acts as if it rem...

Re: HDDriver not installing

I have tried his instructions before and they only worked the one time before the incident with the second card. I followed them again just now and when formatting, it gives me an "data in drive G may be damaged" error box just before saying it's completed. Then after partitioning, it says the same ...

HDDriver not installing

Hi Guys, I've been banging my head on my Mega STE all day and cannot get the Ultrasatan to work or rather the HDDRIVER to install. Once, early this morning, I was able to get one 2gig sandisk card to work but when I put the second card in and went to format/partition that one, it apparently wrecked ...

Re: UltraSatan is comming...

I think I paid with FAILPal on March the 6th or something...when will we know if we have to pay via another method? This sucks.

I have never had this happen before and I use it for all kinds of other stuff.

Re: RGB LCD Monitor : Recommendation 08/09

Perhaps there is a different model sold over here which is mostly the same as that model. Epay search turns up nothing and a direct Google leads only to UK sites.

Hmm.....

This is great for you guys across the pond! We over here in the States need something comparable though so we won't feel left out. :(
