Hey there fellas, there's a local Amigan who's got a Cumana COM-201 controller. http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/search.pl?product=&company=cumana He actually got it recently as a complete pack. Says his disk drive chewed da floppy with the accompanied driver/software making it useless. Would any kind soul happen to have such a gadget and be able to up the driver or suggest some other way that thing could work?
Not mine, just trying to figure a way to help the guy..
Thanks all around (y)

@salaxi54

Hiyas, I have searched both amiga.resource.cx and amiga-hardware.com and I have not found any Cumana-201 =(

have you got any pictures of the device ?

does it have an auto-booting feature?

Will do.

Unfortunately I have 2 of these cards now, and both cause green screen / blinking LED on my 500. I am tempted to try a different revision motherboard (mine is a 6a).

I just hope his card works :D

if he needs a quick reference to ST-506 drives, there's one on binarydevotion ;).

If I get one working, I'll review it... after all, with the HDA506 and the Xebec 9720H this'll be a good collection of old school controller and disk info!
