Ah okay that explain ...

I'll do that as soon as I can and I let you know !

I don't have any kind of drive :( In fact I used to have a 1050 and a 1010 when I was kid but I sold everything it is just recently that have got back a 800XL. A bit of nostalgia of this past era :P and it will be great to show the kids all my favorites games :).

As a side note I didn't remember how bad the keyboard was, I wonder how I could have typed long basic programs ...

Sijmen thinks this problem is failed flash memory.

If this is the case and you can't fix it, please contact me at and I will arrange for a return/replacement.

I think I've tryed everything I could now, (dos wouldn't start: I/O errors, I've tried to reflash etc ...)

I even managed to make it worse: now the activity led is constantly on and myide reports that the drive is busy :(

I drop you a mail Steve to arrange the replacement.

Thanks again for the help !

Ok, I that is fine. I just read the topic about atari-PSU problems.
I/O-errors can also be caused by an old/bad psu.
connecting the memory module to a external clean 5 volts solves this.

I've sent back to Steven the cardrige and a 1Gb Transcend module mid september, and I've received no news from him :(.

I've tried emails, PM message from this forum and nothing ...

Do you know what happened to him ?
