Cheers Andy.

I was given the 128D by a family friend in Holland. It came with about 1000 5 1/4 inch Floppy disks full of games.

Unfortunately i have never got the floppy drive to work. :(

It can probably be fixed or replaced im sure.

I would gladly donate this machine ( with monitor ) and disks to the museum if you are interested.?

:) I know what you mean - these new fangled consoles! I still prefer a good blast of Xenon II - megablast on the amiga!
or going back even further, sanxion or delta on the c64 etc and maybe a quick go of manic miner or jsw on the speccy!

Hello all, I'm Mike and I live in Leicestershire.
Found this site through Quagmire. I'm usually found over on the Atari Age forums as mimo.
My Atari collection is getting a bit out of hand at the moment ;D
NTSC Sears Heavy Sixer - s-video Mod
Pal Atari 2600 Heavy Sixer (soon to have an s-video mod)
Pal Atari 2600 Light Sixer
Pal Atari 2600 clone - 128 games built in
NTSC Sears Video Arcade II - it's a re-badged Atari 2800 (2600 in a shell that looks like a 7800), awaiting s-video mod
Atari Touch Me (a simon type hand held game)
NTSC Atari Flashback 2
NTSC Atari 5200, 2 port system with 4 port BIOS, S-video upgrade, boy I have a love hate affair with this thing, must be the most temperamental system ever!
NTSC Atari 7800, s-video mod
PAL Atari 7800 (two of them, one is a DevOS for dumping carts)
PAL Atari 400 (3 of these, one 16K, one 48K and a broken one that is going to have a mini ITX board at some point, the other 2 will have s-video upgrades at some point)
NTSC Atari 800 (waiting for the XL/XE compatible personality boards to be available)
PAL Atari 800XLs, five of these I think, various video mods and RAM upgrades
NTSC 1200XL - S-video mod, 32-in-1 OS mod, 512K SRAM mod (my pride and joy ;D)
PAL Atari 65XE- will be upgraded to 130XE spec at least
PAL Atari Jaguar - waiting for the Skunkboard to be available again
PAL Atari 520 STfm
PAL Atari 520 STe- was already upgraded to 1040 when I bought it, now has 4 meg RAM upgrade, waiting for the UltraSatan to be available.
Also several 1050 drives, 410,1010, XC12, SIO2PC, Atarimax Flashcarts,Multijoy 16 (a 16 player joystick interface for the Atari 8bit computers, Cuttle Cart 2 etc etc
As you can see I am a bit of a moder, and I have a few other projects waiting in the wings such as an Sdrive, Stereo POKEY etc etc etc

Also Have a mod chipped PSX,PS2,Xbox and Wii

Would like to branch out into the world of C=64 and Amiga at some point, and I am looking for a C= Monitor of some sort

Hope to be at the May meeting, and can bring some stuff along if there is any interest
