This may be a dumb question but, how do you close the trap door on the atari 800 for it to power on if the MyIDE-II cart is in the slot with the flash card sticking out of it. It's sticking up to high to close the door for the atari to power on.

The MyIDE-II requires an XL/XE series computer with 64kB of RAM.

There is a small recessed black switch on the 800 that is pressed down to apply the power when the door is closed. But since the software uses the ram under the OS present on 64K XL/XE computers, its not compatible.
