I have this expansion from Kipper2k that I could never get to work properly with my A600. I believe the problem is with the CPU socket. My A600 did not boot at all with the original expansion and then Kipper2k sent me a new socket which should make a better fit with the CPU. I replaced the socket and was then able to boot the A600 and have it see the 4MB expansion, however it will only run for a minute or so before crashing so it is still not good enough. I sanded down the socket as advised but it still does not feel like it connects properly to the CPU as it comes off again very easily.

I am putting it up for sale in case anyone else want to give it a try.

Price 8 euro plus shipping (starting from 7.50 euro with tracking within EU).

Board received in good conditions, actually seems to work fine on the A600 I tried it on, after a bit of playing with the connector.

Positive feedback on the way in any case :).
