CosmosEx / UltraSatan with Akai s950 ?

Postby innovine » Wed Apr 19, 2017 2:46 pm

Hi!

I have an Akai s950 with an IB-105 ACSI interface in it. This should work with a Megafile disk, but I would like to use an SD-card disk emulator. Does anyone here have experience with using these with an s950, and can let me know what devices work and don't work? Preferably a CosmosEx or UltraSatan, or something else easy to acquire. Even if these are known to not work, that would be useful information to me.
Thanks :)

I'd say you should go with the US -- you certainly can't use CE's mapped disks (it requires an Atari OS) but raw access should work.

Do you know if it actually works, though?

I know it SHOULD, but that is not the same thing...

If it works with Megafile, it will work with US & friends.

Keeping in mind that you won't be able to use SD cards bigger than 64 MB. It's a limitation of S950 OS.

Good luck, it worths almost more than the S950 itself.
I have gone with a scsi interface instead, much cheaper and still produced.

Artmix is producing an scsi interface and a memory expansion for the s950, much cheaper than what you can find on eBay. The guy is in Japan, but he answers in English and he's very nice.
I have read about people who have connected a Link2 acsi-scsi interface to the IB105 in order to use SCSI drives, and it works.
So no reason why the Ultrasatan won't work.
I have a S950 with scsi interface, I have a spear Link2 and an UltraSatan. I going to try it, though I don't know if the Link works for a reverse connection scsi->acsi-> UltraSatan.
