Good morning form England, Have to say you are doing a great job keeping the Atari spirit alive and thank you for that. I have an Atari 1040STE that I got lucky enough my dad to buy me when Atari had exhibition of their new machines in Greece. At the moment the machine is original with no Gotek drive or anything else. I would like to buy one HDD interface if possible, sipping to UK.

The user "aag" reported that these micro SD card extenders work flawlessly with the hard disk device,
also this user tested a way to boot EmuTOS from the hard disk device:


User "aag" said:

I bought these micro sd extenders (micro sd to microsd and also SD) - and they both work with cards I have and make getting to the cards much easier :-

Also - on back of the unt - I just posted this Proof of concept

Going straight into EMUTOS - no messing with drivers.

Thanks for your interest and support!

I take note of your request,

In a STE you will have TOS 1.06 or TOS 1.62, these are good enough and have very good compatibility with games and software

@masteries
Thank you ! :cheers:
I read your PM and I'd like to reply...but I can't (maybe because I didn't post enough)
Anyway, no problem for the delay, I'm not in a hurry, and regarding the TOS version I'll stick with the base version for now.

You will need to wait around 1 or 2 weeks,
Tomorrow I will send 10 units, the usual manufacturing size per week,

I noticed that you have to "convert", the 25 pin D plug to 19 Pin, if you removed the pins from the other end of the 25 pin plug would it not leave room for the external floppy connector?

Really its the power input (via micro USB) the piece that can prevent usage of external floppy,
as well, the device can be powered by wires using the 5 Volts and GND pinout, in order to avoid this.

Hi there,

I'd like to buy another unit please! I've been trying to get access to the floppy drive connector as well, and I may have been a little overzealous in filing the board down to accommodate a floppy cable / plug!

1 more device to the UK please! I'll live and learn (and fix it in the future). If you can help out at all or are planning to supply a cased unit at any point, that leaves the floppy socket available for use - then I'm immediately interested.

If you could also supply a known working SD card, I'll pay for that too - thanks.

Cheers!

Thanks for your new request,

I am aware of the problem that the power input causes for the floppy connector;
as an easy workaround, the unit can be powered directly from the 5 V and GND pinout of the blue board.

A new stock of suitable micro SD cards is on the way, last one is exhausted,

Connector is micro USB,

Hopefully easy to have many of them today :)

But as power source, a good quality one is needed, such official Raspberry Pi 3 or old iPod one

Not necessary to be an expensive one, personally I have a 2€ power source that works well, and a 10€ priced that do not work
