I have trouble loading .atr images with sio2pc, the games don´t works.
So I´m using Homesoft disk compilations, where the games are in .com format and works ok.
The question is if I can load .com or .exe images instead .atr images with sio2pc and APE.

Are you able to load the ATR images into APE at all, or is it just booting the images after loading them that fails?

As roye suggested you can use the PC-Mirror to load EXE/COM/XEX files. Just set the PC-Mirror to drive #1, then boot your Atari with BASIC disabled.

This will let you load EXE files directly from your PC hard disk.

Ok, I tested the PC-mirror and works ok :) I didn´t know this option.
And about loading .atr images, I didn´t hold OPTION button to disable basic ... That was the reason :roll: So, I can load .atr images too.
Sorry for not search in the forum other posts before.
Well, next is investigate If can use Sio2pc to communication uses (bbs etc.)
Many thanks!

ok, the trouble now is trying to do a flash image of the game. Works ok loading directly from APE, but from the maxflash cartridge not. Anyone has a flash image of Bandits working? The option I used was -diskpacker -cart and -flasher.
