    Default Does anyone have an ACA500 Recovery Disk ADF to hand?

    My ACA500 (not the plus) has died and now fails to boot. I'm hoping it's a firmware issue and all I need to do is refresh the firmware from a recovery disk...

    Does anyone have an ACA500 Recovery Disk ADF to hand they could email me please?

    The latest firmware can be found here:

    However, it relies on the built-in flash tool. The older version here contains a tool called 'flashload' which can be run from dos:

    I put the two together on a bootable disk that I have attached, so hopefully that should work. Do not have an ACA500 but I tried booting it in WinUAE and the tool seems to accept the firmware but obviously fails to find the ACA.
