Fran Posted March 21, 2022 Share Posted March 21, 2022 Wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem with their Atarimax SIO2PC USB adapter. Mine works with the ProSystem software (i.e. I can create virtual disks on my PC from Atari 1050 drive floppies and create Atari floppies from virtual disks on the PC. But, I haven't been able to get the adapter to work with the APE for Windows software. The APE software seems to recognize when I first turn on my 800XL, because messages are displayed in the APE log file, but the computer acts like there is no disk drive attached. Tried posting my problem in the Atarimax SIO2PC forum, but not much activity seen there. I also have a self-made SIO2PC USB cable, and have been able to boot my Atari 800XL computer from a virtual disk on my Windows 10 PC hard drive using the RespQt software with this cable. I'm using a registered copy of the APE for Windows software (latest release), and I tested the setup using two different Windows 10 computers. Both work with ProSystem, but not with APE for Windows. Doesn't appear to be a driver issue, because my PC is able to communicate with the adapter, and ProSystem works. Haven't tried APE for Windows with the self-made SIO2PC cable, because I thought that the APE for Windows software would only work with the Atarimax adapter. I'm beginning to think that there is probably something wrong with my Atarimax adapter. Still waiting for Steve at Atarimax to reply to my request for help. So, thought someone here might have an idea about my problem, while I'm waiting for a response. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
