Does anyone have a HDD or adapter of some description for an A500? Can be an internal ide interface or an A590 style addon, internal or external, it doesn't matter. Being able to stick a cdrom on it at the same time would be a nice bonus.

Did you look at Tomthul's for sale thread? The IDE controller he is making does not have auto-boot capabilities (yet), but as a plus it have 2Mb of RAM. :)

You have PM. :)
But as I'm selling it with 8MB of ZIP RAM it's not cheap, sorry... :(

Going to have to pass on that. Esp when you tried to flog me a 128mb cf card for 25 euro.

ok, no problem.
Concerning CF card:
1) It's CF card + CF-DDE adapter + cable + fixation
2) It's an option; I'm not forcing you to take it.

I can offer you a GVP HD8+, including SCSI drive (small) and 8MB memory. It comes complete in original packaging, albeit a bit scruffy and power supply.

More info on it here: http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/impact500mk2

Yours for € 90 INCLUDING shipping to UK.

If they're this expensive, sod it. I'm throwing my 500 back up on ebay and buying an a600. More money than sense.

Unfortunately, it seems that A500s are some of the most expensive systems for hard drive add-ons and other upgrades. :( Should we close this thread or do you still want to look some more?

Thanks,

Close it. The fact that people think they can get away with charging this much money for what's basically a skip find is disgraceful. What's worse is half of you pay for it!

Next time state what you are willing to pay, that saves wasting time offering you something. Specially when you do not seem aware what the going rate for these things is.

@Hell_Labs

Closing thread as requested.

Please be careful of your comments about pricing. People pay what they think something is worth to them and do not deserve to be ridiculed for doing so.

@Tahoe

Also be careful with your comments. They could easily lead to a flame war.

Thanks,

Heather
