Hello,

As the title suggests, I'm looking for a multicard reader that would be supported by Poseidon on a Subway (Mini thylacine support would be a bonus).
I'm asking this because I have one that is external (about 8 years old) that is absolutely refused by Poseidon.
Maybe I could tweak the settings ?

Anyway I still need a card reader capable of using at least CompactFlash and SecureDigital cards. And high capacity as well (>2GB)
It can be either 3"1/5 or 5"1/4.

As the target Amiga (1200 in a tower, 68060/SCSI, Atreobus etc.) will be SCSI enabled, a SCSI multicard reader would be a must, obviously, but I know they are few and far between :-/

I'm not necessarily looking for second hand there, see. If anyone can point out to an online shop that sells such reader known to work on Amiga, I'm all for it too !

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Thomas.

hi,

Thanks for your swift response :)
What I want is a card reader that works on Amiga. Simple as that.
The preferred way would be a SCSI reader of course, for performance, but they are as rare as they are expensive.
Therefore, a usb one would be ok, since the target amiga will have my Subway card.

So if your readers fit the following requirements, I'd be glad to purchase one or two:
- recognized by Poseidon (mandatory, obviously)
- support both CF and SD
- support >2 GB card capacity
- front-end usb port (optional)
- activity led (optional, but cute)

Thanks.

the one i have is usb see previous post.

it works on Poseidon i was using it with a spider usb card for a bit.
it accepts all the cards you listed and i was using cards bigger than you want to use with it,it has activity leds and an extra usb port on the front.

its basically seen as two usb devices in the system and is wired as such, if you want it ill post pictures and you can make a decision about having it.
