    Apple CD / DVD slot drives do work with a JAE to IDE adapter - I have one in one of my A1200s (a Combo 8123A drive). The only hassle is that they don't have an eject button, so you have to use the eject utility that comes with IDEFix. Cutting the slot out was a nightmare I don't want to repeat.....

    I agree Merlin, its rather a pain to cut out and it takes a long time.

    Definitely the cleanest looking optical install I've seen. Good luck with the rest of the project.

    Wow! Some very nice hackery, indeed. I like the creative use of the blank PC Plates as the legs holding up the drive.

    Great job!

    Yeah all that stuff on my table is geek heaven, F knows how I will fit it all in

    Tried BPPC lastnight, boots great at 60MHz. but BVPPC doesnt work even at 50MHz. I dumped my old goliath (15 years old, only 4.88V on +5V) and tried a newer ATX PSU (360W, 35A on 5V). still no joy and voltage still low at 4.92V. Will try more things later..

    @Phipscube,
    4.92V on +5V line is ok.

    So there are 2 possibilities:
    1) BVPPC is defective.
    2) +5V rising time on ATX PSU is too long. Please try to use standard PSU from A500 or A1200 and please disconnect as many devices as you can (FDD, HDD, USB, clockport expander, ...)

    Of course the best way is to go to someone with 100% working A1200 +BPPC + BVPPC to check your BVPPC, but this you know very well.

    Hi Stachu100

    I don't have my original A1200 PSU anymore, it went many years ago when I bought the Goliath.

    I will try with nothing but BPPC and BVPPC, then I will try and find a standard A500 or A1200 PSU locally. if that all fails maybe I can bug Tomse and see if he will try my BVPPC in his setup!
