Is there an EASY way to get a 2.5" IDE HD inside my A1000 yet?
« on: February 22, 2021, 10:39:18 AM »
There used to be something called AdIDE that sat in the 68000 socket for any OCS Amiga, of course today that is as rare as rocking horse doodoo coated in powdered unicorn teeth. This is the last thing I haven't found for my Amiga over the decades...hell I even found the internal 24bit video card for A500/1000* etc called Avideo24 that sits in the Denise socket but probably won't try it on an Amiga 1000 as they are just too precious now....I'm like Golem and his bloody ring! :)

Do I have any options today?

The Amiga is so much nicer with a autobooting HD, even a tiny 40mb HDD back then was enough for me to have lots of my pixel art and samples for MOD tunes etc.

(may not work on A1000)*

Not really. This comes close though;-

AdIDE was no fun mounting the hard drive in an A500 or an A1000. No brackets.

In addition to the Parciero, there are a number of newer/new-ish things that plug into the 68000 socket and add a few megs of RAM and an IDE port or a CF slot. You'd have to confirm A1000 compatibility because I think they're intended for the A500/A2000, but the 68000 components of all three systems are so similar it would probably work.

Downside: you need Kickstart 2 or 3, or you need to hack together a 1.3 ROM that includes scsi.device. This should help. Hopefully the resulting ROM can be converted to a Kickstart disk.

Hmmm... that's kind of interesting.

Does scsi.device have TD64 implanted in in?

I guess there's more to it than that, TD64 is implanted in many different components. I'll start a new thread and ask.

Hi Amiga_Nut
There is one card* that works in an A1000 that adds a 68000 processor running at 33MHz or 40MHz, 8MB of RAM & an on board IDE controller. It’s called the HC533. Per this thread, one guy is using it in his A1000 with no problems. You might want to inquire about A1000 use in the same thread as it is still active. It will autoboot OS1.3 or OS3.1. Will NOT run software requiring a 68020+ processor.  It would allow you to use a 40pin drive or an IDE to CF adapter. It’s basically Plug n Play.

https://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=91878

The 40MHz product sold here in the UK….. (does not include an IDE to CF adapter)

https://retroready.one/collections/amiga/products/hc533-40mhz-8mb-ram-for-amiga-500-amiga-500plus?variant=33025478033483

The 33MHz product is no longer available. However, if you find out that you can use it in an A1000, you might consider (shameless plug) the one I have for sale in this thread for $140.00 + Shipping + PayPal Fee.

https://forum.amiga.org/index.php?topic=75062.msg851479#msg851479

The 40MHz product is selling at $189.99 USD.

Anyhoo, lots to think about there.  If you’re NOT in the US, the product at RETROREADY would be a better choice for availability and price.

*Surprised none of you guys know about this product.   ::)

Tight fit on NTSC A1000 with a daughterboard? PAL one maybe OK.

Thanks to everyone :)

I will have a look at those, to be clear I only need some sort of internal hard drive, it's just for when I am doing Digi-view stuff I want the machine to be running Workbench from hard disk not floppy drives. If there is an internal SD card etc type solution that also works that's fine.

I have almost all other Amiga machines ever sold all boxed etc inc A4000/040 maxed out machine for my Vlab card and other stuff I wanted (I don't like the price of the A3000 for an ECS machine these days lol but for some weird reason I have 3 CDTV Mutlimedia bundles including one that came in a box the size of an armchair).

Might as well start burning out all these motherboards before this stink virus kills me when it comes into contact with mem can't take it with you eh!
