ATTENTION: I have discovered it's VERY EASY to make a short during soldering USB connector to PCB: before you power on your Amiga, please check with a multimeter if there is a short between metallic case of USB connector and one of a 4 pins of USB connector. Check must be make with a multimeter even if solder appear ok to eyes! If there is a short, TPS2024P will dead in fews seconds! If you find a short, please desolder USB connector and resolder it using few soldering wire. After this, re-check!

To all buyers:

when you solder crystal don't forget to left about 1mm between metallic underside of crystal and PCB, otherwise it can make a short. This issue is only for crystal miniature (included in Robert's kit). If you use a regular size, underside it have an isolant material.

Please make attention to fit cypress and toshiba chip in right way.

Please see this for exact components placement:

In summation: the Thylacine card is a 1.1 USB card for a Zorro slot the works in OS 3.X & OS 4.1 using the Poseidon Stack and can access thumb drives, mice, keyboards, Networking USB dongles, and, I believe, all the USB classes that Poseidon supports. Having only one (1) USB connection it is best to attach it to a good quality powered hub. The Thylacine device driver is in the public domain and located on the website with Robert's (Loofy) parts list -- Ambience Creation Technology, members.inet.com.com/~Loofy/index.html.

I hope this helps.

Thanks mate, Trident have many options, have you tried to 'play' with it?

If you use a keyboard, you can redefine all keys :)

Please set as default for massstorage.class max transfer to 64kb and save configuration. In this way all pen drive, sd/mmc adapter and external hard drive will work very reliable.

If you intend to use an external HUB, please choose an external powered type.

Hi mate, I have tried in my A2000 rev6.2 and works like a charm :)

See yourself:

39186

39187

39188

39189

I think you have a software problem and/or hardware conflict, but my A2000 is almost full as I have:

GVP IMPACT3001 030@50 882@50 16Mb
Oktagon2008 w/ HD9.1Gb
PicassoII+
A2386 with Cyrix CPU upgrade (CX486SRX2 @ 50) + zip2simm adapter 8Mb
Thylacine USB
SVGA ET4000 1Mb
Sound Blaster compatible

OS3.9
2x29F002 instead EPROM for kick3.1

Please check! It MUST work.

Cheers,

Rino

Jawd
20th January 2013, 21:17
Hmmm, should work then.
I was concerned about my 030 but seeing you also got a GVP 3001 that is not the problem.
The only cards in there are:
GVP 3001/8bm
Macrosystems de-interlace card
GVP HC8-II
A2000 Rev 6.2 (OCS denise)
ClassicWB (fresh install)
Fiddling around with the settings did not make a (positive) difference :(

I might try a catweasel/buddah card instead of the GVP to see if it is interfering with it.


Edit:
Tried the ide controller but still the same.
Also a powered usb hub did not help.
If i pull the hard disk out of the 2000 and put in the 4000 the usb does work.
Despite better judgment now trying a clean 3.1 install.
If this does not work i shall open a new threat so yours does not get to cluttered.

Do not install Poseidon v3.2 first, but install directly v4.4 without key. I don't know if Buster chip in your A2000 can make a difference. Do you have 1mb chip?

I have an idea: I can try upload somewhere a .lha archive of my Workbench partition, so you can try with it. If doesn't work there is an hardware issue in your A2000 for sure. What do you think?

Cheers,

Rino

Jawd
21st January 2013, 00:40
Tried the direct install of v4.4 and also tried to only install v3.2 but still both with no luck.
I do have 1mb chipmem.

21st January 2013, 19:34
The problem is the amount of memory in your A3001. Using a RAM8 card on the back of the accelerator fully populated (8Mb) will occupy all the Zorro2 memory area and no Zorro card will work, then.

The RAM32 add-on card does not use the Zorro2 memory area and permits more than 8Mb, so acquiring one might solve the problem, too.

Reduce the number of RAM to 4Mb (no option for 6Mb, unfortunately) and the USB card will work.

The problem is the amount of memory in your A3001. Using a RAM8 card on the back of the accelerator fully populated (8Mb) will occupy all the Zorro2 memory area and no Zorro card will work, then.

The RAM32 add-on card does not use the Zorro2 memory area and permits more than 8Mb, so acquiring one might solve the problem, too.

Reduce the number of RAM to 4Mb (no option for 6Mb, unfortunately) and the USB card will work.

Thanks, sounded like it should be the problem but it sadly does not solve the problem.
I am going to try a known good workbench config now first to rule out the software part.


If it still does not work i think it is best to open a new topic so this one does not get to cluttered, because the card works fine on my 4000.

:( still no luck, must be a hardware conflict with my 2000... will open a new threat soon.

Mine arrived too. It is like beholding a shiny brand new 2013 Ferrari (Italian reference intended).

Thanks so much! Now I need to get it all configured!
