Think I'll go for this as it lets you connect your 1050 disk drive to a PC and write images back to atari disks 8)

Over the last few weeks I've seen a few seller's on ebay selling home-made versions. Wonder how hard it would be to make one yourself.

I did see a few buy now's for around £20-£25. I look at the atari section on a daily basis, so I'll post a link here when I see one next time.

I tink this looks like a nice SD card based solution

The SIO2SD is also a nice device, I used to have one but still used my SIO2PC cable more.
The MyIDE carts from AtariMAx are also a nice solution, you can use a CF Tranflash card or an IDE HDD with that one.
Lots of nice storage options for the Atari 8bits at the moment 8)

Not got the right computer at the moment to use one of these but i'm sure to get one this year so I'll buy one of these at the end of the month. Maybe I could bring it to the event in may so I can see if it works ok?

They work brilliantly, I bought one from the designer/original maker when they first came out. Unfortunately I had to sell it to raise some cash a while back.

SIO2PC is the daddy and great value if you have a PC near your Atari

SIO2IDE is another well regarded storage solution

Then I need to save for the VideoBoard XE (it's real, no camera tricks here)
