good news about my amiga !!!
« on: October 27, 2014, 09:49:57 PM »
Hi all:

Remember the floppy disk drive was not working right ?
This time I tried something different, when inserting a disk in my amiga,
instead of waiting a few seconds, i waited a little more
then boom, the disk was recognized and worked fine.
I tried different games and programs, like shadow of the beast 1.
Bingo !!! the amiga read every disk and all the software worked.
What i was doing wrong, was to wait little time for the disk to be
recognized, now that i waited a few extra seconds, the floppy disk
drive works all the time.
The floppy disk drive works everytime now, I just have to wait a few
seconds extra for it.
This is great for me, very good: It means I can play all my games, get
new games and software for the amiga 2000, and get/install opalvision
board together with opal paint software.
Needless to say, I am very happy
Thank you all for the support !!!

You might want to put a bit of contact cleaner in the disk detection switch at the front of the mechanism- they get dust in them and stop working well.
Great news it's working though!
