View Full Version : Atari 1050 problem

November 23rd, 2013, 07:15 PM
I was wondering if anyone had encountered this problem with a Atari 1050.

I have three 1050 drives and three versions of dos (2.0S, 2.5, and 3.0). Two of the drives will boot with any version of dos (and work within the menu options). One drive will not boot with version 2.5.(disk boot error).
I thought it might be a different ROM version, so I swapped the ROM with a drive that works with all three versions.
The problem stayed with the drive.
The problem drive will boot from another version and read the directory of the 2.5 disk but not boot from it.
Using all the same disk when testing. (even tried my master 2.5(risky)).

Does anyone have, or know of a disk utility to throughly test the drive?

Any feedback appreciated,
