rcamp48 Posted June 6, 2019 Share Posted June 6, 2019 Hello folks: Today I have a 15 min video showing not only how to build an SIO2PC cable, but running it on Respeqt. What you have to do is get a cheap programming cable from Ebay, you know, the kind that yopu would use 4 wires to program a Gotek with, and you WILL have to cut a spare SIO cable, no soldering needed , all you need is the two cables, the USB programmer cable uses only 3 wires, and the SIO cable uses only 3 wires. When you cut off the end of your SIO cable you will find the Black Wire, the Green Wire and the Orange wire, thats all you need from the SIO cable, cut the other wires off as you don't need them. then take your USB programming cable, it should have an FTDI chip in the usb part, if not this will not work, you use the Green, White, and Black wires from it. Connect the green wire from the USB end to the Orange wire on the SIO cable, tape it with rubber tape, then white wire from the USB end to the green wire on the SIO cable, and finally connect the black wire from the USB end to the black wire on he SIO end.. Tape everthing good, (or solder it if you have the skills)....and plug the USB end into your Windows 7 or 10 computer. Watch to see which Com port the computer uses to set your programmer up , and write it down. Rus respeqt after downl;oading it and unzipping it, then go to tools, click options, and set the port name to whatever port your computer assigns to it, also set the handshake method to SOFTWARE (SIO2BT) write delay can be 10 ms. Load your fav program like I ill show in th video , and it will work! Here is the video: https://www.facebook.com/rcamp48/videos/10217288567179137/ Note that not everything runs on my end but it is because I am using a 16 K Atari 600xl, tomorrow afternoon I will have it upgraded to 64 K.
