810 Disk Drive

Atari, Inc. 🇺🇸 1981


As you may have noticed, your ATARI 810 Disk Drive looks slightly different than that shown on the box and in the manual. To fulfill increased demand for this product, we are now utilizing two front panels for the ATARI 810 Disk Drive.

All ATARI 810 Disk Drives perform to the same high standards. We've gone to great lengths to assure that they are completely compatible— that they read and write to the same diskettes, use the same Disk Operating System, and perform identically in use with other ATARI Home Computer products.

Your new disk drive does not have an eject button since the door opening design makes it easy to insert and remove diskettes. To do so, simply lift the tab, insert or remove the diskette, then lower the tab to its original position.

With the addition of the ATARI 810 Disk Drive to your ATARI Home Computer, you have greatly increased the efficiency of your system. Several individual files can be stored on a diskette and each file can be accessed directly, by name. The disk drive transfers data to your computer much faster than the ATARI 410 Program Recorder.
