    Default SD card as a HDD inside Amiga - compatibility

    I am thinking of setting up my A1200's "HDD" by using an IDE to SD adapter and SD Card. Are there issues with brand compatibility like there is with CF?

    I have a Kingston, was planning to you that one. Thanks!

    I've been using different SD cards with this adapter. I have had no issue with both Amiga 600 and Amiga 1200. The SD are known to be less temperamental than CF cards.

    I slapped whatever 2gig card I had lying about in mine and it worked fine, even with the furia 68020 accelerator, which is known to cause problems with a great many CF cards. In short, recommended.

    Just remember to set the Max Transfer to 0X1FE00 as with all other IDE devices on Amiga
