Hi all, i have recently purchased a supradrive 500xp from DoogUK.
It is working fine however it only has a 52mb hard disk drive so i am looking to upgrade it a little.
I am not sure if it has any size limits (not posotive but i believe i read this may be limited based on the amab rom version which i believe is amab4 in mine) and if it does have a size limit could anyone present any info on upgrading the rom?
I am looking for anything 1gb to 4gb max

Thanks

Mike

@ scrappysphinx

One thing I'm doing with my Commodore A590 is adding a SCSI to SCA SCSI adaptor, that way I can use later SCA drives with it. I picked up a 4Gb SCA drive last night from a certain auction site *cough* for 5.99 all in. It's worth considering and the adaptors aren't expensive either.

Re: Wanted 50 pin scsi hard disk drive

Hello, I got two scsi 50 pin disk drives, 1 x 2.1GB (don't remember the model but can take a look) and 1 x 4.3GB QUANTUM FIREBALL 4.3S .

Also got some 9.1GB disk drives IBM and QUANTUM but with 68 pin scsi connector. I connected they to the 50 pin controller using simples 68 -> 50 scsi adapters.

All drives are tested and fully working. Take a look on google for the prices because I don't know :)
