Re: How do I Hook Up an External MPF920 as Drive B

So if its just a pass through board, set the FDD to be DS0. That's what I had to do on my Datel drive which is also a pass through. The Sony drive needs to have a link changed with a soldering iron as per here: http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/d ... d/main.htm

Re: How do I Hook Up an External MPF920 as Drive B

Yep, that was me :) Hope it helps. The salient points are: "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 file...

Re: Just bought a U S Atari Mega 4 for $240 US

I hope it is a ST4, but given the case top says that and the bottom says ST2, there is a good chance (Since the mainboard usually stays with the bottom) that it is likely to be an ST2. You might get lucky though, so it would be good to get some internal photos to see what's what once it arrives. You...

Re: Total Newbie Thread

Well jon you can have my china allocation since I won't be using it. Three or four years ago I did have pretty good luck with there products but a couple years ago the percentage of crap took a big jump in my experience. A buy that stands out was a lot of 6309 and 6809's I purchased. Had a 50% fall...

Re: Total Newbie Thread

My success from China has been good, both AliExpress and UTSource. Nothing I've had so far has been faulty (See deliberate exception below!), including GALs, Goteks, EPROMS & RAM (100x 41256 chips, all tested fine) and a ton of other stuff including my ROM burner, which has so far been reliable. I d...
