And which processor, i.e. 68000 or hopefully 68020 or better?
Because you see the definitive upgrade for the file system problem
worked best on AOS 3.9 which requires the faster wider bus processor. It is
why I went to a 68060 in my A2k.
Without the later filesystems it will be unreliable and only appear to
be prepped then fail repeatedly. This is the behavior reported from users
drives of the now laughably small 4.3 Gigabyte drives.
Yes it will be hard to find. But start looking and find out what you
can find learn with your resources. Don't forget to check with repair shops
and Amiga dealers, eh. Sometimes these places might have just what you need
having gotten a stock in hand when the bottom fell out of the small scsi HD
market. Advertise for it on the comp.sys,amiga.marketplace, even.
Good luck with this, David. I just spent a bit of time searching my on
hard disk downloaded archives from Aminet and a few other sources but with
the big drives, best bet is apparently 3.9 and the 32 bit bus processor not
