Atari mega/st 520

Post by Mishka0794 »

Hi..... I'm doing this for a singer/songwriter who has 100bsongs stored on D drive.
Unfortunately D drive does not appear on screen as an option.
Basically it's missing and doesn't show
Can someone technical provide step by step instruction on how to access it

This probably need way more info to help.

When you are talking about a mega/520 and drive d I'd assume you are talking about an Atari 520 and a megafile hard drive? What hard drive exactly? Does the St actually boot from the HDD? Is drive c: working? If yes, what do the boot messages say about available drives?

The solution may be as easy as creating a drive icon for drive d:

There’s a bit of information missing, a screenshot would be helpful, too.

Guessing now: Click the C: icon after being booted up. Go to the menu bar on top. Hover on the rightmost menu (OPTIONS or similar), click "Install Disk Drive", enter "D" and "INSTALL". A new icon D: will appear. Does double clicking reveal its contents?
