Atari TT and MegaSTE Owners

Have you tried to find a New replacement Internal 3 ˝ SCSI 1 Hard Drive for your Atari Computer lately?  Do a search on the Internet, you find plenty of the SCSI 2, SCSI 3 and Ultra Wide SCSI hard drives (which are not plug and play on the Atari TT and MegaSTE computers), but very little of the older Smaller SCSI 1 Hard Drives that will work on the Atari TT and MegaSTE’s.

The old obsolete SCSI 1 Hard Drive Standard / Specification is now close to 15 to 17 years old and most of the New SCSI 1 Hard Drives that will work on an Atari TT and MegaSTE computers disappeared about 5 to 7 years ago.  New 3 1/2 SCSI 1 Hard Drives that will work on Atari TT or MegaSTE are getting Very Hard to find now days!!  To top off matters, because of the internal SCSI Interface design, there is a small Fixed Group / Brand of 3 ˝ SCSI 1 Hard Drives that will Properly work with the Atari MegaSTE series of Computers.

Best Electronics has found a small group of New 340 MB (Atari Formatted out at 324 MB) SCSI 1 Hard Drives that will replace any Atari TT or MegaSTE Internal Hard Drive going bad you have.  Listen to your present Atari TT or MegaSTE Hard Drive, is it starting to make funny sounds or not booting every time?  If so, it is time to replace that Internal Hard Drive before it goes bad and you loose all of your Atari Data.

The Story behind this Lot of New SCSI 1 Hard drives.

This Lot came right out of an old local Silicon Valley Company (still in business).  They were installed into New Equipment years ago and then Pulled out of the same new equipment, because that equipment was upgraded to a larger version SCSI 1 Internal Hard drive at that time.  Since then, they have been sitting on a warehouse shelf as Replacement / Spare Hard Drives.

Because they were installed and then “pulled” out of New equipment (not put into service), you may find a couple of minor blemishes, scuff marks, discoloring on the New hard drive labels, or some have minor dings in the black paint on the body of the hard drive.

We have 100% Atari TT / MegaSTE formatted all of these New 324 MB SCSI 1 Hard drives and installed Atari ST Hard Drive boot software.  All 66,5154 sectors on each Hard Drive formatted out with 0 Errors.  We have Partitioned these New SCSI 1 Hard Drives with 3 partitions (we can set up any amount of Partitions you request). 

When you receive them, they are Lock and Load Ready! to use inside your Atari TT or Atari MegaSTE Computer. 

Each New 324 MB SCSI Hard Drive is Anti Static bagged, in the original Factory OEM box with a 90 day 120 Day Warranty!!

CB103115 SCSI 1, 324 MB Hard Drive $75

Best Electronics has been selling to Atari 520ST / 1040ST / 1040STE / Mega / MegaSTE / TT and Falcon Owners and using the Excellent Atari ST HDDRIVER 8 Software Package in house to prepare All of the Atari ST / Falcon Hard Drives we have sold for near 10 years now.  It has been our Bench mark ST Hard Drive prep program.  Compared to the original Atari HDX ST Hard Drive program (has not been updated or supported for 8 - 10 years now) and the Old Bench mark ICD Hard Drive prep Software (has not been updated or supported for at least 5 to 7 years), the HDDRIVER 8 has gone thru constant upgrades and updates over the last 10 years.  I think when we first starting to sell the HDDRIVER 7 program years ago, it was on Rev. 7.0 version and currently version is Rev. 8.20.  The German HDDRIVER 8 author has constantly updated this excellent Hard Drive prep program from the very first very small Atari Megafile 20 Meg Hard Drives and small SCSI TT Hard drives to the State of the art Giga Byte very large Hard Drives sold today.   Every time something new came out for the Atari ST computers, including some of the ST updated Clones and ST /  Falcon Accelerator boards, the HDDRIVER 8 program was upgraded to support these new St products / New Hard Drives.

One of the reasons why we like the HDDRIVER 8 hard drive program so much, is it is a  very easy to use ST program and has one of the fastest auto boot up ST hard drive programs we have seen.  In the 10 years of using the program in house we have only had one or two Non Atari made hard drive mechs we could not format, I think they had a defect on the hard drive motherboards.  With its easy to use intuitive drop down GEM menus, a beginner who had never even formatted an Atari ST Hard Drive to the Atari ST Hard Drive expert who likes to set his own Hard Drive internal settings will find the HDDRIVER 8 program Very easy to use.  In the past years the HDDRIVER program was supplied with a Owners Manual, now has an on board Read Me file on the 3 1/2 ST Disk and there is Now Free On Line Internet Support and Information in English for Registered HDDRIVER 8 Owners at the HDDRIVER 8 web site in Germany.  CB103057 $49.95
