Hi folks,

I have a MyIDE-II cart, but my real hardware is currently 14.000km away from me... So I started playing around with emulators for different systems.

For A8, trying out Altirra and was surprised to see it supports cart like MyIDE-II. I cannot however get it to work...

I do have the MyIDE-][.bin file, and even in the "Firmware Manager" I see it, however when adding to a system I get an error under Computer--MyIDE-II stating "Missing firmware for device"

What am I doing wrong..?

It works perfectly.

You need to tell the firmware-manager that the .bin file is for MyIDE-II
After ADD and selecting the file:
In the pulldown-menu "type", you select MyIDE-II

Ah thanks, that did it. I had not really added it before, because when it just scanned my folder with the ROMS/BASIC/Etc. and said it found "x" firmwares, I thought it knew what it was.

I guess it does not detect what each thing is? Threw me off that it said it found "X" firmware files, but I guess for some it has no clue what they are.

Now I think I need to define something that would be the MyIDE-II's CF equivalent?

You can make a disk-image from your CF-card and use that.
(That is what I do).
Just pop it into a card reader and make a sector-copy.

This way, you could also write it back to CF (if needed).

Hmm well now I am 14.000 km away from my ataris and carts, so cannot do that. I do have access to the backup I made of the MyIDE-II CF contents, but it was just a file copy, not an image of the card.
