JoeFL77 Posted April 20, 2021 Share Posted April 20, 2021 Could you please help me wire this to connect an Atari 800 to an IBM PC (USB) with windows 10. I have read and read but am fearful of an incorrect connection and frying things. I think I need to move the jumper to 5V ? Would Cat 5 cable be OK? which wires should be in which twisted pair? I might try for a cable between 10-15 feet. I have read that using a 6 wire is better than a 4 wire device? Which and what wires gets connected to the Atari SIO? I Have a Atari 800 computer, 1050 disk drive, SDrive-Max, (and 850 untested on the way). I am going to 3d print a SIO connector from a file on Thingiverse. I have some appropriate (I think) terminal crimp connectors from Digikey. This 800 thing may be getting out of hand but it sure is enjoyable! I am hoping the RespeQT will enable me to print BASIC programs through the PC (and not need the 850). Thank you. About this item FTDI FT232RL IC:Built-in original FTDI FT232RL IC.
