Good luck!
Amiga Hardware Issues and discussion / Issues with CF card...anything I'm missing?
« Last post by AndyFC on March 24, 2023, 11:21:46 AM »
I'm having problems with a CF card. I suspect it's hardware (card or adapter) so want to see if there's anything I've missed in diagnosis.

- Second hand 8GB transcend 133x CF card card from CEX
- New startech cf to ide adapter as slave on primary ide channel
- My real A1200

I'm well practiced at installing and using PFS.

In HDtoolbox or HDinsttools after I add PFS to the rdb and reboot, PFS vanishes from the list of filesystems.

I can partition the drive (tried 1x8GB and 2 4xGB partitions) and format. They turn to Dhx:NDOS after reboot

Trying to write files results in errors similar to this https://forum.amiga.org/index.php?topic=33722.0

Running repair from the PFS tools appears to work but after a reboot the volumes turn to NDOS.

The CF card appears to work fine as NTFS under Windows.


Now my project A4000 is coming to the end, I want to start on my Power-computing case. I have everything I need but a A1200 to put it together.

I have biddied on a few A1200 on ebay but they are all going about £230 plus and I was wondering if anyone on here has a more reasonable motherboard for sale?

I have a A4000 030 board with FPU I could swap and various other things if that's better than money?

I had an unused partition on the CF card intended for games. I’ve made this bootable and done clean OS 3.2 installation, (not 3.2.2), along with P96 drivers, Roadshow, MMULibs and the the ZZ9000 drivers. So far it’s all working without issue. I tested it at each stage to try to highlight and issuers but non so far. I’ll install MUI tonight and copy over the user-start up sequence and the test the applications…. All good so far!

Amiga Hardware Issues and discussion / Re: A500 GVP HD+ Memory Expansion Issues
« Last post by Motormouth on March 20, 2023, 08:35:06 PM »
To be specific about this
The one meg chip mod should be on the A500 motherboard itself near the 68000, jumper 2
This allows 0.5 the regular slow memory to be to added to the 0.5 meg on board to get 1 meg chip.
up to $0FFFFF

As for the gary adapter, I am wondering if it allowing some of the trap door ram to added to the 8 meg auto config space
ie $200000 - 9FFFFF    8 MB Auto-config space

you could check this with sysinfo or another utility.

FYI slow-fast ram is usually mapped at  $C00000

It might be useful to look your ram mapping.

Regular Fast Ram (ie the GVP HD8 ram goes to the 8 MB auto-config space)

I have an GVP HD8 on my main A500, and an IDE Ad540 on one of my other A500s (which is a large trapdoor memory expansion with a gary mod plug in)
However your trapdoor expansion might be different which is why I would look at the address space with sysinfo

Sorry for the late reply, thank you both.

The only mod is to Gary to give 1mb chip ram. I think it's a good idea to reverse this as you suggest and if that doesn't work, I'll try some new ram in the GVP> Will report back....
