It doesn't?  I thought all drives had the 4GB limit (in the OS) prior to the 3.5/3.9 ROM patch.

small drives are old and usually unreliable. most of the stuff you'll get will be living its final moments most probably. If I were you, I'ld get a brand new 9.1 - 18 gb drive and use the first 4 gbs. These drives are slowly phasing out and I guess stores are trying to get rid of their stock at the moment, so they're available new. You may need to get a SCA-50 pin, 68-50 pin converter, which can also be found easily.

I have a lot of SCSI drives 2gig, 4.5gig, and 9gig.  They are all 68 pin wide and I have used them for my A4oooT and they worked great (with a 68 to 50 pin adapter, I will see if I can locate some of them, I have cleared out majority of my Amiga stuff).  You can have what you like for cost of shipping, not sure how much it would cost to ship across the pond, I live in Canada.

PM me if you are interested.
