I'm 100% sure I did transfer files using Kermit, probably at the time with a Windows 3.1 PC.

Thanks for the replies ;) I'm especially looking for this since I got a DDD1 and that's possibily the only reason I could try plugging it again. And also because it's impossible to be found and I'm sure it's somewhere :p Thanks a lot for the links (amazing articles it seems!) and suggestions, it cou...

Re: Drumworks for Korg DDD-1

Hi!
13 years later… Is there still no trace of this software?

Found a review, in German:

Re: HDDRIVER and DOS/Windows partitions

Hi, Not sure I'm 100% on topic, having read the discussion very quickly, and it seems Falcon-oriented. But regarding the thread title... I'm using an Atari STE with UltraSatan (and SatanDisk before), + HDDriver. I'm using several small 512Mb SD cards, which are formatted to be Windows compatible. Al...

Wow, impressive! Glad Novalight works (still trying to make it faster, but won't go off topic here ;) ) Thanks for the details about the machines.

Re: Oric Atmos core for MiST / MiSTica loading TAPES !!!

Great news! I may end up buying a Mist ;) Did you guys try to push the limits by testing some special loading routines, such as TAP2CD, TAP2F16 or Novalight? I'm no MIST expert and see there seem to be different models... MIST, MISTer, MISTica? Would this directly work on MIST sold at Lotharek's? (t...

Havok: So basically you took a decision to do or not to do something based on somebody's arguments that you think are valid but that you are not willing to share.

Re: Good bye

Having people put your software on a site, without your authorization, and balking at removing it is just bad manners and lacking of consideration in regard of the work done (for free) by the authors. Years of hammering the same old, tired, largely invalid and/or irrelevant arguments in spite of vo...

Re: INTERNATIONAL KARATE vs IK+: WHICH IS BEST?

IK for me. Loved the music, the intro, the graphics, and the slow speed doesn't really bother me. Also one of the 1st games I saw on ST, so it has a nostalgia bonus. I was disappointed by IK+, never played much to it. That being said, I should try them again some day, I might have a different opinio...

Ok, got the Ultrasatan working with the SCSI2SD :-D The led problem was that one of the led cable was rotten and got cut as son as I moved it.

Re: Dilemma: Mega STE or not Mega STE?

Hi all, and happy new year! Just a follow-up: I bought the SCSI2SD card, and it seems to work like a charm as internal drive on the Mega STE. I had to struggle a bit with HDDriver to have the micoSD card formatted as 2 partitions - just had to set the partitions size to 511.9MB instead of 512. 1GB i...

Thanks! So, there are different chips for the DMA? Ones I saw, reported as faulty, looked very different (that would explain why I didn't find it on this board ;) )
I had taken a look under the SCSI card, but didn't notice anything that could be it - well, I was maybe looking for the wrong chip...

Re: Dilemma: Mega STE or not Mega STE?

I opened the Mega STE again, to see which DMA chip I got, one that Jookie reported as causing problems with UltraSatan, or the right one... As I'm not familiar with ST internals, I feel stupid but I don't seem to find it??? The motherboard looks like this one: http://www.atari-wiki.com/images/d/d3/S...

Re: Dilemma: Mega STE or not Mega STE?

I don't see why someone would need beside UltraSatan (which has 2 SD card slots) some SCSItoSD adapter. You really need 3rd SD card slot ? Two reasons here: - I have both a 520STE and a Mega STE, and these machines could end up being distant from 130km. - internal solution avoids an extra power sup...

Hi, For question number 5 I suggest to consider the scsi2sd option since ultrasatan with adapter for internal usage won't allow you to use the external acsi port animore (as I learnt from lotharek). My scsi2sd works great inside my mega ste and I still have the opportunity to use an external ultras...
