Question about Atari 2600 Console
Do you know anything about how to use an xf551 disk drive for the atari?
Here's how these old suckers work. You have to have an old (latest - late 1980s) DOS-based PC with the proper attachment cable for such a drive. Preferably an ATARI computer. You have to leave the disk drive flip switch OPEN until DOS loads, or it will give you an error message. After the old clunk DOS-based computer is finished loading, THEN you can close the flip switch (with a floppy disk in, of course). I can't give you exact instructions b/c I don't know exactly what kind of ancient PC you have. Here is a link to an YouTube video showing you about what to expect :(1986 Tandy):
Have fun! These are real pains in the neck compared to what we have now.
