    Larky's A1200 premium pack is complete.

    Recap with organic polymer caps (will never leak again), KS 3.1 ROMs upgrade in precision sockets, RF removed, new CIAs socketed, timing fixes, video color fix, full cleanup in PCB wash:

    FDD mod fix on everblue's A1200 Rev 2B. There was a strange FDD behavior (check out the video).

    But since I've made the video two things happened:

    1. Found out the fix is probably the ESCOM FDD mod to use PC drives and requires external logic

    2. The FDD had problem writing disks even after the mod was removed. But all was solved with a new CIA chip, so all FDD operations are good now. So probably good idea to remove the mod as soon as you see it if you are planning to use normal (880K) Amiga FDDs.

    I just re-assembled my A1200 after a premium-pack treatment. Everything looks fine and everything works fine. I can only say: Great job and thanks! Tbtorro really knows his stuff and the results look very clean and neat.

    Dude just watched the FDD vid, good work ,I had that condition on a CDTV the drive was looping like yours and yes I found it was the CIA chip, and they easily blow because people try putting external drive into the port while the machine is still powered up !

    And also you sound just like Arnold Swarchnegger " I`ll be back !`
