hey guys first off i must say i love the site ..... reminds me of my childhood

having not had a amiga for the last 10 years i decided to take the plunge back into old skool and got myself a cheap A1200 off ebay but i need a couple of items if anyone can help me

FOUND: ram expansion board (anything will be fine aslong as gives me extra ram)
CF Type1 card 256-512meg (for use with EASYADF to take me games collection from adf)
2.5 hard drive (again size not important but bigger would be better)

i can pay by paypal so anyone willing to help a old skool die hard amiga user get back to his roots i dont have hundreds to spend as i'm off work sick at the mo so cheap as possible would be superb

Re: A Couple of A1200 parts

well since its the season to be jolly and all that I have had some time on my hands to clear some stuffs up.

I belive I can help you with a 4GB 2.5" drive and a small 256MB CF card.

I can prep the disk for OS 3.0 / 3.1 or 3.5 which ever and WHDLoad Games thats games made to run on the hard drive :D have a look for KGWHDLoad and WHDLoad, theres about 3.5GB of games :D (we like that a lot)

(for OS 3.1 and 3.5 you will need Kickstart Roms 3.1 *tells you on the insert disk screen* )

I can yomp that on the disk drive for you soo what shall I rush my fellow Amigan.... hmmm how does for postage sound m8? be about a £5 with all the packaging for the HDD :)

Hi Jailer,

I'm just interested as to why you don't want a Cunama drive?

One of mine had lifted tracks once & needed repair...have you also had this sort of problem with them before?

PZ.

Re: A Couple of A1200 parts

Hi Jailer...

I have a SCSI CD-Rom drive and SurfSquirrel for sale (currently being held for ScrappySphinx and StevieU respectively, although I haven't heard anything from them for a while). Happy to part with for £50 all in (inc P&P) to a UK address (CD-Rom is heavy!). Should be all you need to get going.

Let me know if you're interested.

I've contacted two other members to get them to confirm their interest in the meantime,

Cheers,
AndyC

Hi all...

Just to let you know, Scrappysphinx has confirmed he still wants the CD-Rom.

As such it's no longer available.

Cheers,
AndyC
