Atarimax "MyIDE+Flash" Cartridge

IDE Interface System for Atari 8-bit Computers with Flash BIOS - 11/18/2009

©2007 Steven J Tucker

Introduction

 

Please Note:

The "MyIDE+Flash" has been supersceded by the new MyIDE-II CompactFlash Cartridge.

Both the "MyIDE+Flash" and "MyIDE Internal Upgrade" kits are still available for purchase while supplies last.

 

The "MyIDE" upgrades are professionally produced internal and external IDE interfaces for all Atari 8-bit XL/XE computers.

Cartridge Version (MyIDE+Flash, External Interface)

The new MyIDE+Flash Cartridge interface combines Sijmen "Mr. Atari" Schouten's popular "MyIDE" interface with an Atarimax 1Mbit reprogrammable flash cartridge. This interface is portable between computers and requires no internal installation.

The cartridge versions built in 1Mbit flash system allows you to utilize the interface and your hard disk setup in any 64k XL/XE computer, using the built-in boot OS, without modifications to your Ataris existing hardware or operating system.

For advanced users, a complete open-source development kit is available for customizing the boot flash and on screen menus, though its use is not required and all cartridges come 'ready to go' for casual users.

For new users the cartridge version of the interface is recommended for its ease of use and zero installation requirement.

Internal Version (MyIDE "Classic" PCB Version w/ New Flash Upgradeable BIOS)

The MyIDE Internal interface combines the classic internal MyIDE PCB upgrade with a new flash programmable OS. This interface gives you all the benefits of the MyIDE OS in ROM, with easy in-system flash OS changes at any time.

For more information on the classic MyIDE interface, please review the documentation below.
