Re: My 1040 STF works, but doesn't?

Hi Atacarol, 1) search this forum for similar posts / troubles 2) can you hear your 1040 access the floppy drive at boot? I will defer to the savvy tech’s on here for a better solution.

Re: Discovery cartridge modifications/questions

I just purchased a Discovery Cart - Option Zero.

How do I use it to read / write 1.44 floppies with a stock ST / STe? :shrug:

Three Sparrow Mainboards on EBay

Hello Community,

I saw this on eBay and thought y'all would find it interesting too.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/302406103307

Atari Prototype Sparrow Motherboard Rev2. The same seller has two other "Sparrow" auctions. I was tempted to bid but I lack the skills to maintain a prototype.

Re: Power Cables and Requirements for U.K. 520STFM in the U.

Looking at the pictures, it is clear that two different versions were produced. I can only see one "input" smoothing capacitor on the USA version, so this design of PSU (which if you look, uses two chips at least) may be a universal type.
