Hi all,

Trying to get this Eyetech buffered IDE interface working. It works 'sometimes' and I can never seem to replicate it working. I don't think its a power issues as even if I remove bvision+bppc still no joy.

When it doesnt work the machine fails to boot.

Has anyone had previous experience of these things not working 100%?

It could well be knackered, as I've not tested/used it since buying from here; however the fact it has worked 2/3 times makes me wonder if it's fixable! :)

@Wasagi,

I've had probs with my Fast ATA but as you may know it's different and plugs into the ROM socket. Just having a bad connection on the very short pins can mean it works one session then not. I have to really push home the connections to get some reliability. I'm beginning to think that all of the later Amiga add-ons are just a pile of expensive flaky rubbish and wonder if it's time to knock this hobby on the head. My subway USB also stopped working the other day. :(
