ED (2.88mb) Floppy Upgrade for Falcon

I very much want to replace the 1.44 floppy drive in my Falcon with a 2.88 drive. I’ve read this is possible in the documentation for E-Copy. Searching Google, Atari-Forum and the ArariAge forum has not revealed how to accomplish this change. I hope this knowledge is in our Atari community. Thanks f...

Re: New wiki page - ST low/med/high capable flatscreen monitors

Hi Troed, The wiki refuses to display on my computers so can I request that you send me the monitor list so I can see it? I see that you are using a Dell 2001FP for your ST, I have one of these monitors coming and am hoping that it will work on my STF. I see nowhere in the Specs that it supports do...

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Bath - ??Harm??

It's the photo or it seems to me that those keys are too white to be a MegaSTE grey keyboard? Looks identical to my TT keyboard. But didn't the TT and Mega STE have the same case and keyboard? :) The keyboard case is so yellow that I cannot tell if it is a TT keyboard or a Mega STE keyboard. :shrug...

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Bath - ??Harm??

Thanks y'all. I've begun reading the links provided. 3% H2O2 is sold in American pharmacies for "topical use." I am still hoping that someone else has already tried this and could share their experience. If not, then I will probably pry off the key caps and find another way to keep them submerged.

Hydrogen Peroxide Bath - ??Harm??

Hello Gurus! I have a keyboard for a mega STE. It and it's keycaps are very yellow. I like the even results from submerging the Atari plastics into a bath of Low concentration hydrogen peroxide. However when I try to submerge the key caps, they float to the surface. Which reduces the effectiveness o...

Re: Dilemma: Mega STE or not Mega STE?

FWIW, I have a SCSI2SD version 5, installed via internal Atari SCSI host adapter in my STacy. I believe it's the same as the MSTE. It is limited to 999meg. Set Parity to off and ID to 0.

Re: Mega STe and ultrasatan

I think the internal DMA connector and the Internal SCSI host adapter in the MegaSTE and STacy are compatible. Take a look at this thread of putting an UltraSatan into a STacy without an internal SCSI host adapter. http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=22615&p=200694&hilit=Stacy+Satan#p200...
