This floppy speeder for the Atari 1050 disk drive includes all features from the Mini-Speedy 1050 plus one new feature: It can write a whole disk including format and verify in less than 30 seconds! The secret: The data is loaded into the Super-Speedy’s onboard 256 KB RAM and then you can write as many copies you want from the RAM inside your 1050 – no transfer through the bottle-neck SIO bus is needed! The installation is absolutely solder-free. Just remove two chips, cut off four capacitors and plug the Mini-Super-Speedy into the 1050 mainboard – that’s all!
The Mini-Super-Speedy 1050 offers all features like the Mini-Speedy 1050. When you access your 1050 with Mini-Super-Speedy equipped drive all read/write functions are the same as with the standard Mini-Speedy 1050.
The additional power is only available when booting your 1050 with Mini-Super-Speedy as D1: and open disk lever. A special copy program is loaded into your computer, which controls now the high-speed copy features with the Super-Speedy!
Speedy-Software is patched with English words and commands and runs with NTSC, too!
