No, its a pure software based solution; where the software (or firmware) runs entirely in an external low cost processor that mimics ACSI command interpreter plus manage a SD card via a triple buffered DMA = low cost hard disk unit for ST computers family

I am myself a customer of Peter Putnik software and hard disk adapted games compilations.
As well I followed some programming tips from P. Putnik xD a good mate at Atari Age forum

Really this hard disk, along with the custom 3 button enabled gamepad, are the affordable solution (due to UltraSatan is extremely expensive, of course, high end solution; and Satandisk is very limited in SD compatibility and slow) in order to play an incoming wave of new high quality commercial games for Atari STE (MegaDrive and DreamCast too) I am developing along with my graphics based mate ; we are a team of two, but we don´t want to show the new games until an entire stage is complete and released, as a playable demo.

The Metal Slug port represents the base engine for a new game,

Please accept my apologies, i was very sad for Peter Putnik distress, and thanks for yours explanations.

Sincerely yours

Don´t worry mate,

I am aware of P. Putnik problems... and third persons said that some Hard disk adapted games used bypassed protections from others (and not made by Putnik)... and these sort of really bad things regarding him...

Thanks for reporting,

Any issue you found, contact me :)

Remember, "How to" procedure:

1- Flash or deploy provided SD card image into an SD/SDHC card
(usually HP laptop SD card readers are not suitable)

2- Insert the SD card into the hard disk unit SD card slot

3- Connect the unpowered hard disk unit, into the ACSI port of
the unpowered Atari ST/E computer

4- Power up the hard disk unit

5- Few seconds after step 4, power up the Atari ST/E computer

6- Hard disk unit, and SD card partition will be usually detected;
due to its a bootable image

7- If the Atari ST/E falls into an empty desktop, perform a reset of the
computer. Normally the system will go to step 6 in these cases.

8- Enjoy!

I've lost my 1Gb microSD so I had to wait the new one I've ordered.
I received it yesterday so I could try this unit.

First, the size of the unit prevent from using the second floppy disk connector.

The unit operates flawlessly.
The harddrive images you provide are great. It saves a lot of time trying to fill the harddisk with software.
