For the IDE-to-CF adapter:
-connect IDE pin 20 to 5 volt.
The adapter (my link to ebay) does not need a power-cable.
5 volt on pin 20 is OK.
Please upload a picture to verify!


On the example PCB from my homepage:
-connection 2 is 5 volt.
-connection 1 is 0 volt.


Your IDE-to-SD needs a power connection.
Look good to your adapter, IDE has no pin 20!


Power connector on PCB
+--- 5 volt
+--- 0 volt
+--- 0 volt (NOT CONNECT)
+--- 12 volt (NOT CONNECT

I have finished building the circuit :)

I must now climb on him/it inside xe.

I have a question for you, the pin 1 of my ide goes to the pin 1 of the cpu and the pin 2 of my ide goes to the pin 8 of the cpu but the pin 1 and 2 of my ides go to gnd and 5v?

graces and excuse still me

Yes, that is correct.

pin-1 = gnd
pin-8=5 volt

Follow the quick-quide.

From the manual:

QUICK-START (MyDOS):
This is a quick guide how to setup your system with 2 logical drives and image-space. Suitable for the average user working with MyDOS.

· Put the MyDOS disk in drive #1 (Physical drive or sio2pc/Ape).
· Boot your Atari while holding START+SELECT+OPTION.
You should enter the MyIDE_MENU. If the IDE-device is new/unused, there may be garbage on the screen.
· Press I* (init) and wait until it has detected the drive geometry.
*) Hold –shift- for manual CHS input, hold –control- for manual image input, or both.
If the device supports PIO-8 and has enough room, you will be asked to create a FAT32-area **). FAT32 will roughly be 50% of the media.
**) After completion of the init-routine the extra partition is usable on your PC. You need to format the partition on the PC. For SIDE-users selecting FAT32 will automatically reserve half the FAT32-space for APT.
After init the bottom line shows the CHS, Image, PIO-8 values of your device. Please check CHS-values, do a manual CHS input when wrong.
· Press M (Make), <enter> (Drive #), 720 <enter> (Sectors #), S (density). Name: BOOTPART (example)
This is your primary boot partition for system-related software.
There is not a drive-ID attached to it, since we can’t boot from it yet.
· Press M (make), 2 (Drive #), 65535 (Sectors #), D (Density).
Name: MYDOS <enter> (example).
This is your data partition. Use it for non-system files.
[On small drives it's possible that you get less then 65535 sectors. This is the] [space below the area reserved for images. You need this given value to correctly] [configure MyDOS. Alternatively you can increase space by using control-I and add] [blocks of 256 cylinders. This will reduce space for images]
· Press ESC (exit), then Y (save).
This will save and perform a powerup of the Atari.
[It should boot MyDOS from D1:]
· Wait for the DOS menu.
· Press HELP, this will enter the MyIDE-MENU.
· Press C (Change) A (Partition) 1 (Drive #).
[We want to enable D1: on IDE.]
· Press ESC (exit), then Y (save).
[You will safely return to the MyDOS menu.]
· Configure D2: as high capacity. Press O 2 N Y Y 65535(*) enter.
*)enter the correct amount of sector if your partition is not 65535.
If you forgot the value, press HELP to see and ESC/N to return.
· You can disable verify for faster write. Press V, then N.
· Format D1:. Format D2:. Write DOS-files to D1:
[DONE]

For safety reasons, I then protect partition A (D1:), just in case…
(HELP, T, A, ESC, Y)

That’s all. System now is bootable from D1: assigned to IDE.
