Re: Wanting to upgrade a 520 ST to 4 MB

Just be aware Russ, part of this comes as a kit, specifically the shifter adapter, and it will require some resistors lifting and pinning to 5v.

If your soldering skills are still not up to par, I'd strongly suggest that you find a friend who can do the assembly and de-soldering parts for you.

Ok, can do :-) how do you want me to pay for it Exxos? was going to add a couple of other things in the store over the next couple of days too.
Same question from me pretty much. I seem to recall you sent me a link to pay on the web when I took the 520ST off your hands.

Ok, no rush for me if you're in greater need RJ. My test one is missing a few keys is all.

Don't suppose you got anywhere with those Mega STs did you Exxos?
Honestly, I'm not in need of anything top notch, just spares for when I need them. How about we go for one each?

Re: How would you rework/improve this STE?

BTW,it is my understanding that with CF cards, there can also be compatibility issues, so SD or CF, you may run into issues. I did use a CF card on my STE for a while, and had some issues getting one that was happy with my IDE interface, but eventually went to SD in my CosmosEx. I think mine is an 8...

Re: How would you rework/improve this STE?

I'd probably start by doing a re cap of the PSU. It's a nice easy task and will ensure it runs well for years to come. EDIT - I just saw you'd got an exxos PSU board, get that puppy installed! Then you might want to consider a Gotek replacement for the FDD, and as as already been said, replace the h...

Re: Datel RF302R

That sounds like my findings...I just swapped the real (non-working) floppy in the external drive case for the Gotek (internal drive from another ST) with no changes to the Gotek & it worked. Now all I need to do is win the lottery to get enough Goteks for all the other STs with faulty drives :lol:...

Re: Datel RF302R

Well, reading this http://info-coach.fr/atari/hardware/interfaces.php#Floppy_Disc_Connector there are pads on the boards that allow for them to be set, but I've never noticed them. I will go and have a look at one of my bare boards at some point, but yes, the drive is set to DS0 now. Also I think wo...

Re: Datel RF302R

Small update. I now have the enclosure properly working with a replacement floppy drive. The drive is set to DS0 by jumper. I also tested with a Gotek also set to DS0 in place of the floppy and it also worked ok, and I was able to copy files etc between the Gotek at drive B: and the internal floppy ...
