I didn't think an FB-357A would fit into an A4000D. Too high. At least that was my experience when I tried with an FB-357A in my A4000D.

The A4000D takes the FZ-357A not the FB. If I'm wrong, somebody please let me know and tell me why my FB didn't fit. :-)

Sorry to hijack the OP thread....

The taller drive fits my A4kD. It has an approx. 3/4 height 3.5" panel in the lower drive bay to accomodate the taller drive. But this means you cannot fit another 3.5" device in the lower bay. As silly a question as it seems, but did you remove the lower 3.5" blanking panel to try fit the drive?

Hey Mate,
Actually I have one, but Im sure the postage plus the unit would make it too expensive for you. Postage only I calculate to Germany from AUS would be approx. $40AUD and thats standard airmail only. If you are still interested, Id happily sell you mine and replace it with a DD Amiga drive from AmigaKit.

PM me if you are interested and we can discuss privately.

I'm sure you can get 2 versions of the lower blanking plate, one full one and a 3/4 one to accommodate the deeper drive - in fact I think I have one of each on my 4k's.

This should show both HD and DD drives and drive blanking plate
