Atari Portfolio Compact Flash Interface

Post by Mr.JT »

A while back I remember seeing instructions somewhere on how to install a Compact flash card into an Atari Portfolio for a practically endless (for the portfolio at least!) amount of memory. I can't seem to find details of the driver/instructions anywhere now, mainly as I don't remember what it was called!

Anyone got any recollection or even experience of this??

Cheers

JT

PS. How many of you out there still actually use/own a portfolio?

that's not the one I remember, but if it works that great by me. I can't read that site as I don't even know what language it is!!! :oops: Does an English translation exist? Is it a kit he is thinking of selling or a procedure for a home made modification?

I would be interested in a compact flash solution for the Portfolio as well.

Google Translate is not *exactly* English, but close enough to understand most of it, I guess:

What I am thinking of doing is modding the parallel interface in such a way the the entire CF card adapter and circuitry will be in the parallel interface , I have a friend working on it now, we do have a prototype for the card itself but it needs a modified parallel interface as well as the software I will send a picture of the Portfolio with an unmodded interface and the module plugged into the port. It of course does not work yet as the interface is yet to be modded.

Is the CF card running in 16 bits mode? With 8 bits the parallel interface doesn't need any change I guess. Check: https://www.electro-tech-online.com/thr ... de.109465/
