The Story of the Atari ST CD (YouTube Vid)

Post by DrF » Sun Sep 01, 2019 6:41 pm

Popped up in my feed earlier, interesting device from Atari that never got out, I am sure I saw some things like this advertised in ST magazines way back by 3rd parties, various educational CD rubbish so prob skipped that bit :lol: but I do recall seeing some kind of NASA/space encyclopedia thing, being reviewed, that interested me at me the time :D

Only remember bits of it in magazines at the time and they was not official Atari products for the most part.
I can see why it never came out, I had a A570 for my A500, it was pretty useless :lol: so I guess a ST CDRom would have been a bit of failure too.
Only good thing was the very few public domain CDs that came out like that Fred Fish Collection CDs we had those, 100s of floppies on 1 CD, other than that support was pretty crap :lol:
