Hi,

On MSN you are off-line and I can not send a off-line chat-message.

Listen,
When you get the IDE-MENU, the interface is OK.
The BIOS checks the interface and media.
If OK you get the MENU if BAD you get nothing.

Please put the SD away. CF is fine, 4Gb is fine.

Did you try the manual init?
press SHIFT-I

CF in PC, load drivemangerLBA2
Click on partitions

Good luck :-)

Sorry, I really do not understand anymore.

I guess the translator english <-> italian is not helping us out.

Do you have a friend who can help you out in English?
Dutch or German is also fine :-)

you excuse me.

I connect adapter cf to atari, with inserted cf, I press shift The I shape as written in the manual, I press esc / Yes.
I put cf in the pc and cf he/she is original.
I connect adapter cf to atari without cf, I press shift The I shape as written in the manual. I press esc / Y.

I think that with or without cf for myide not and different.

I think that 7404 that I have it doesn't do well his/her job

Without CF the menu does not come.
So if you have a menu and no CF inserted, that is impossible.

The interface you made is bad, please check all wires.

Or buy one from atarimax here:
MyIDE Internal Interface for XEGS Computer
http://www.atarimax.com/myide/documentation/
$65 dollar

I also have a MyIDE external cartridge that I am using with a 512meg Transend CF card.
I can verify that it works with both the original and updated BIOS.
And I have to say that I had tried three times to build an external MyIDE and failed on all builds.
So I am going along with Mr. Atari in saying you can save yourself a lot of headaches by ordering the MyIDE from classics.
Also, make sure you are using the correct software for your device!
If you built the external one use the software for it.
If you built the internal one, use the software for it.
If you boot with your MyIDE and CF card attached and run the FDISK.BAS program, and it gives you a message of NO HARDDRIVES found, you have a wiring problem on your MyIDE interface.

Sorry if I was not supposed to jump in here, but I thought my experience to be relevant.
The last thing I should mention is that I used the autodetect values as my CF card settings.

I have built a circuit following the scheme and I have re-checked the connections a lot of times. On Pin 1 of cable ide I find + 3.3 v.
i have found the following chips: 74ls245 , 74ls32 e 7404.
The menu appears if I connect the adaptor, but it appears if I don't connect, also.
I turn on atari in the menu ide choose I on the screen appears the writing wait, but anything changes, also after 15 minutes.
If I choose SHIFT I in the menu , appear the writing C: next H: next S: I enter values that I have found on internet, Then I follow d1 1040 guide, push button ESC and then YES.
I put the cf into the pc and anithing changes. I open the program you suggested but it doesn't find any partitions where MY DOS can be copied.

You format and write MyDos to the partitions from the Atari, not the PC!
And in my case, the Atari created partitions did not show using the disk manager in Windows XP.
If after creation of partitions on the Atari, they do not show when accessing the FDISK program again (without writing on exit), the write to the drive failed.

pancioalbe:
Try this:

Atari + CF:
Boot into BASIC and peek the IDE-registers.
Post the values here at the forum.
10 FOR I=0 TO 7
20 ? PEEK(53504+I)
30 NEXT I
RUN

Then try and store a value and read the content back.
Use register 53509, just poke a value and peek.
POKE 53509,170
? PEEK(53509)
What do you get?

This register is 8 bit deep, so any value between 0-255 must be stored.

Later,
Sijmen.
