    Btw, Rob sent me a few to test and they are indeed excellent - I'll be switching to these when my current stocks of 62 connectors run out.

    Freddy, have you tried adding a line to the config.sys to specify the drive parameters?

    eg:

    DRIVPARM=/D:1 /F:1 /H:2 /S:9 /T:80

    The micro drive has a huge ram cache which probably helps a lot. I’ve also found they have lower CPU overheads on my Amiga’s too.

    Here’s the back of the cards:

    No, however both CF's have been operating without issue for months, I tend to swap between them when testing stuff. I do have other CF cards that have not been reliable.

    Those are great for Amiga 600 and 1200 models and frequently sell for silly money on eBay.

    If you can find the Seagate ST1 MicroDrives I highly recommend them - they are almost as fast as flash due to a huge ram cache and should live longer than flash.

    My A1200 doesn't have a shroud but it does have pin 1 marked quite clearly. When I installed it I did have the red wire up that end but never bothered checking to see which pin was actually pin 1....

    That cable is designed to connect to the mainboard via the center connector - I plugged it into my Amiga 1200 (also uses shugart) the "right way" and was able to drive a pair of goteks without issue.

    Exactly, it looks like it's in backward but the keyed shroud should prevent this - these units definitely have a keyed shroud, it's the first thing I get folks to check. The second thing I get them...

    The connector shroud is keyed so you shouldn't be able to install the Y cable in the wrong way - it's the key from the center connector that I've had ppl snip off to allow them to turn the cable...

    The holes Seemed fine, the internal connectors were stiff to start with and just gripped way too tight.

    I only wasted $100, but it was still frustrating.

    I’d be interested, however having been down this rabbit hole before and pouring a bunch of cash down the drain, I’d caution you to get a very small sample to test first. The batch I bought worked but...

    Looks really good Robert - great idea adding the IDE header so that you can utilize an off the shelf adapter.

    On the EX, the pins are right next to the PLUS expansion slot and even have the pins installed (at least on mine they were). You can prolly get to them even without removing the crappy sheilding.

    You can enable nibble mode by closing the E1-E2 pins with a jumper on the EX/HX which connects the printer select line and gives you limited birectional funtion.
