Description

The Atari 810 disk drive was introduced at the unveiling of the Atari 400/800 computers at the Winter CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. January 1979.

There are two versions of the Atari 810. The MPI version which has a door handle that swings up and you slide in and out the 5.25″ diskette. The other was the Tandon version (what this is modeled after) which has a spring-loaded up/down door that when opened would eject the diskette out about 1 to 2 inches out of the drive opening for easy removal.

The Disk drive is an SIO device with 2 ports on the rear of the unit to allow “Daisy Chaining” of other peripherals onto the SIO bus. Up to 4 Atari 810’s could be connected together, each drive has its own unique Drive Number ID from 1 to 4.

This SDrive-MAX is beautifully crafted to look like the original Atari 810 floppy drive from 1979 and great attention to detail has been put into its design.

The SDrive-MAX is a modern solution to the old problem of not enough disk space on your Atari 8bit computer. SDrive-MAX is a floppy drive emulator that emulates up to 4 physical floppy drives and one tape drive. Store thousands of floppy drive images on a single micro SD card that loads just like the original floppy did.

The all-new SDrive-MAX also functions flawlessly alongside physical drives giving you the ability to back-up those aging floppy disks onto modern storage that will last. It is incredible that floppy disks from 40 years ago still work, but it is only a matter of time before the data on them vanishes forever. The SDrive-MAX allows you to copy all of that data of the aging floppy for use far into the future. You can copy from the SDrive-MAX to physical drives just as effortlessly as from a physical disk to the SDrive-MAX.

The SDrive-MAX comes with a large touch-screen display, a 16GB micro SD card, an external power supply for maximum flexibility and a stylus for easy control. SDrive-MAX’s can get power from the SIO cable, but we include an external power supply for the original 800/400 computers that do not supply power fast enough to the SDrive-MAX to boot from it. You can also load CAS images using the SDrive-MAX since it also emulates the old tape drives used in the ’80s.

  • SDrive-MAX.
  • Supports “ATR”, “ATX”, “CAS”, “COM”, “BIN”, “EXE”, “XEX”, “XFD”, “TAP”, “IMG” images.

  • External power supply (Input: AC 100-240V Output: DC 12V 1A US style plug).
  • Power switch modification allowing either power over SIO cable to the external power supply. External power is highly recommended.
  • SIO modification to allow for SDrive-MAX to operate along with physical drive connected to the SIO bus.
  • Working Power LED.
  • Working Drive Activity Light.
  • Footpads.

The case is available in either left-handed or right-handed versions. The stylus is on the left side for the left-handed version and the right side for the right-handed version.
