You could try cleaning the membrane.. not by hoover or brushing chremicals on it.

Just lifting it out and shaking 25 years worth of hairs, tiny grit particles etc might fix it.

Got to be gentle with these. No creases, no heavy pressure. There's a few videos on youtube on cleaning and fixing rather than replace, just search on "Amiga keyboard membrane". And if you've got to change the membrane anyway it gives you a little practice with handling membranes.

Oh yeah, you can now get fast RAM expansions for the A600. With 2MB of chip RAM WHDLoad becomes viable route to some games working. Not a Furia but definitely a step up and reasonable price;-

@ Pat The Cat
I will look to get a new membrane when I can.
There is a pcb membrane that is solid and works with green and blue keyboards.

I will probably upgrade the working A600 first. (edit:)
I bought a pcmcia adapter for transferring files. This will help in up grades, etc.
Thanks for the feedback.

I can personally recommend the A6095 fast ram board, it gives your A600 the options of 4, 5.5, 8 or 9.5MB of RAM, the two latter only usable without PCMCIA. The nice thing is that to switch between 5.5 MB and 9.5 MB you just hold ctrl-a-a 3 seconds. So you use the jumpers to set whether to have 1.5MB “ranger ram”, whether to have 4 or 8 MB as default, and whether to activate switching via 3 sec resets. I mostly use mine with PCMCIA ethernet, so I let it start with 5.5 MB by default, and just ctrl-a-a a little longer (and pull out ethernet card) when I wish to boot up to 9.5 MB.

It looks like a good choice.
I am not for sure about other memory upgrades.

There is one that has 4 mb max.
It does have a good price.
It is sold by Amigakit.com.

March seems to be a release date for the A6095 card.
I rather have this card.

I think they are built on order, so to speak.
I got mine about a month after I ordered it, which was when they still were called amigapassion, so a while ago.

There was an onscreen keyboard tool called Oskey. Let you click on key icons and then cut and paste what you had typed.

I've searched for it on Aminet, can't find it. Might have been on a Fred Fisk dick or possibly Amiga Format coverdisk,

Definitely worked on 1.3 and 3.0 so should work on 2 as well. If you find it, let me know,.. New thread time! :)

amr.rumpigs.net/amiga_format_coverdisks/af011_1990_06_d011.zip

It was indeed on an Amiga Format coverdisk (no commercial software on that one, fully PD).

If you got a key that doesn't work you can still get it into applications. Won't work with games though.

Name was OSK, that's why I couldn't find it.

Looks like I have to put my A600's away for a while. Class starts on Monday the 15th.
I do not know if there is a such a thing as  a Good Amiga Addiction.
Later.

I bought a PCMCIA adapter and I can not get it to work on either machine.
Any help will be appreciated, I tried different SD Cards of different sizes and still no good.
The kit has a PCMCIA adapter, a Flash Drive adapter, and a SD Card.
Thanks.

Tried how? Using compactflash.device?

I copied compactflash.device to Devs: and then copied FAT95 to L: and then CC0 to directory.
CFD133 shows similar hardware.

CF0 goes in Devs/storage, not just devs. CC0 isn't used.

It should mount partitions up to 2GB without alteration. How big is the sd card?

Up to 16gb you have to have a sector size of 4096, over that you need 8192. You change it by editing the CF0 file in a text editor.

This is down to the way that Windows formats Fat32 (and why most people stick to 2GB partitions on fat32 partitions).

If you get an icon for CF0 but it shows as Ndos, trying formatting it from the Amiga side.

EDIT: Devs/Dosdriverv is indeed the correct place, not Devs/storage
