Looking for a tester with an Amiga CD32

A while ago I wrote some code that accesses the Amiga CD32 NVRAM directly. Unfortunately, I don't have an Amiga CD32 and UAE, in this case, doesn't make for a good reference: in fact, the code worked right away on UAE, but it never worked on a real machine. Until now, a friend made lots of tests, but I caught him in a very busy period and, moreover, running tests is a huge hassle to him.
I don't want to bother him anymore, so I need an Amiga CD 32 owner who can easily trasfer files from/to the machine (i.e. without burning CDs or plugging/unplugging expansion hardware) and run tests for me. The tests consist in small programs (under 2 kB) which run for a couple of seconds and output text and/or dump files to RAM:.
Can anybody help? Thanks in advance.

Your request seems rather difficult since the only way to run code is either to burn a bootable CD-R or use an expansion device to boot into from floppy or HDD.

I have an SX-1 but I don't think my HDD is good anymore and my PSU is missing...

Nowdays it's easy to get expansions for the cd32 with ide-ports at a low price so i have no doubts that there is people out there capable of helping saimo :)

Hmmm, now I see that my wording can be easily misunderstood: I didn't mean to exclude expansion hardware, just that the solution of unplugging and re-plugging expansion hardware isn't ideal (that's what my friend has been doing, and I don't want him to go through that anymore, not to mention that I don't want to cause more connector wear).

CD32 with a TF330 and a CD32 with FMV here.
sent you a pm

edit

My CF2IDE is on a long cable outside my CD32 so its easy for me to remove the CFCard and mount it eslewhere to get files on and off.

@all

I have received help offers from three persons, so, for the moment being, don't bother answering ;) Should I need further help, I'll let you know.
