After one of these, not sure which chip I have currently, but it'd doesn't like any drive bigger than 1gb in size, which tbh, sucks.


Please help :bowdown:

Have you tried OctaPussy from Aminet ?

lol, no I hadn't, didn't even know it existed. Just looking at the read me it sounds like it fixes all.

Thanks you very much, :thumbsup:

Now just gotta workout how to install it :)

Coolest program name ever :D

Seems to load a new rom to ram on top of the old one to make drives work with idefix97 and hdtoolbox and surpass the small hdd limit in the older roms. Also makes the drives become recognised as scsi.device drives. Clever stuff :)

Spoke too soon. My Oktopussy doesn't seem to like being used with CF IDE adaptors.

Quest is still on, Burnt or original is fine.
