Have unzipped noddys playtime to an sd card with hd driver for now,its looking great apart from paintpot, when you click the pictures to paint them you get a disk request [hit a key] and you cant load them
cheers for now :) oh and if i may make a suggestion the forum is a little bit hidden isnt it? it could do with being with everything else on the left hand menu pane

I did not notice that there is option to load/save pictures  :)
Will check for it. Likely, will need to hold/copy pictures in game's folder to make it work ...

Considering problems with seeing SD card contents , or maybe writing problems: some people reported problems with Windows Vista. I can not help about it, except to recommend that using other Windows version  ;)

I have similar problem with my STE and UltraSatan - it boots not. But SD cards is written OK, and it boots on other machine (Mega STE). So, likely some error around DMA circuit in STE.
Other possibility is Satandisk error. It would be good if you could check it on another machine.
Or to reread SD card to some other file and compare with orginal file.

A problem also coming from card readers..here is my solutions..  ;)
try to use MicroSD with adapter SD to your UltraSD..
but! write the image on your PC with USB stick like this one


Or use MicroSD with adapter SD direct to PC to write/read with this USB card reader

Maybe Windows corrupted Atari bootsector checksum.
To cure it DL:  http://atari.8bitchip.info/MBR_FIX.ZIP
Run file MBRFACSI.TOS from floppy with Satandisk - with inserted card, attached to your Atari.
Then reboot.

Not much. Max some 20. Examples: Obsession, Substation, Sleepwalker, Pacman OE ...

Many more is made with usage of STE extra capabilities as 4096 colors, HW scroll, DMA audio .
Examples: Magic Boy - DMA audio, HW scroll, colors. Chaos Engine - HW scroll .

STE came little too late, and sales were not big (Amiga took lead in meantime). So, game houses did not made big effort.

One nice thing in all this:  STE is very compatible with ST. Actually, I did not see any ST game what really can not work on STE. All problems were because of:  TOS version incompatibility or bugs in programs - like writes in bad HW register areas, which are not present on ST, only on STE, so by ST nothing happened while on STE we had diverse errors, crashes. Example: Grandmoster Slam - screwed screen on STE.
