Re: Uses for the old HDs

I have a bunch of IDE 4.3 GB hard drives in my basement. Would I have some use of them if I got myself a TT or Falcon or are they too large and recycling should be their next destination? don't throw them out....post them on a Amiga board as large IDE drives work flawlessly on higher end Amiga's 12...

Re: IDE Interface for STe

...Then you have CF cards which are IDE also. this is the best option for me as I love the 'no noise & heat' benefits from CF IDE cards...as you know Alex many of us Amigans have been running our 1200's with 4GB + CF cards for years now :wink: ..would be great to have a CF HD on my 1040Ste too ...

Re: best available option to install IDE Hd into 1040 STE ?

Well, this reminds me on old poll about 'biggest flaw in Atari design'. I think that Amiga did much better job with it's internal expansion bus. It allows easy upgrades as new OS in ROM, IDE adapters etc. In ST(E) you can not do most of mentioned without soldering or special CPU/ROM socket boards. ...

Re: best available option to install IDE Hd into 1040 STE ?

Hmm, I had an A1000 once. I liked the recessed keyboard. I can't remember how it has more expandability than a 1040STe though. well there are numerous hard drive options available for the 68000 line of Amiga's (1000, 500, 600)..scsi, ide, Compact Flash and SD cards running as main hard drives inter...

Re: best available option to install IDE Hd into 1040 STE ?

hmm I must admit that I am quite surprised that the 1040STE which was produced up to 1992 has so few options for expandability today compared to even a Amiga 1000 made in 1985 :?
