Re: Proposed setup for Atari Portfolio IDE Kit

Apparently not all of the pins go through on the Parallel interface , even with the 8 bit interface , which I don't understand, there are 8 wires needed for transfers between Parallel and IDE , I think it is 16 bit but I am not sure anyways the software uses 16 bit, it is a 16 bit computer.
