 Post subject: MyIDE II, plugged in booted 800xl and nothing...

When I plug in the MyIDEII cartridge, either with or without a CF card, all I get is the Atari system test screens when I power up.
I have 2 800XL's and they both do the same thing. If I boot without the cartridge plugged in, I get to Basic, and other cartridges work as well.
My question is, did I somehow damage the MyIDEII by plugging it in with a blank cartridge? I expected the boot menu, but it seems as though I have a unit that has lost its program.
Can I repair it somehow?

Thanks for any advise,
GregSS

Hi GregSS,

First: you need to contact Steve about guarantee-issues.

Sorry to hear about this.
Yes, when you switch on, you should get the boot-menu.
Now, did it worked before and you could work with it, or did it arrive like this?

Grtz,
Sijmen.

I have had the unit for over a year now, but I was working on a project with the Atari 800xl and did not really test it out (I have a side2 and that was storing all my programs).
So, now I went to test it out and it seems I have done something to wipe the cartridge out.
I will pick up another and be more careful in the future.

Thanks again!
GregSS
