Hardware News   Hardware News : Support for disks over 128GB in new 4xEIDE'99 buffered interface
   posted by DJS on 30-Jul-2007 20:34:14 (3709 reads)
ELBOX COMPUTER is pleased to announce the LBA-48 addressing support in new 4xEIDE'99 buffered interfaces for Amiga 1200 and Amiga 600 computers.

LBA-48 support is necessary for handling disks over 128GB, which are currently the most popular hard drives on the market. Up to now, FastATA controllers were the only controllers for classic Amiga supporting EIDE hard drives over 128GB.

New 4xEIDE'99 buffered interfaces with new software supporting disks over 128GB are just available in Elbox Online Store and from distributors of Elbox products.

Package contents:
- 4xEIDE'99 buffered interface
- Floppy disk with 4xEIDE.driver ver. 4.0 and AllegroCDFS ver.3.6

New software with LBA-48 support is planned to be made available free of charge for registered users of older 4xEIDE'99 buffered interfaces - it will be announced when is available.

Heh. The first drive I put into an Amiga was 128MB. Never managed to fill it up. Even now, if it weren't for photos and videos, I probably wouldn't go past 1GB or so.

I was reading this news item in retro mode. For a brief moment I was thinking, "but they dont even make hard drives that large!".. despite having 2x 250giggers in my own machine. Me dum.

I pioneered with large (127MB+) disks on Amiga I think. I bought a FastATA'99 and a 160GB disk a couple of years back and then there was no LBA-48 driver available. I beta-tested the new driver they made for me until it worked Took 3 versions until they got it right...

I still have a 9.1GB UWSCSI and 2GB IDE drive in my 4000, and they still have plenty of room left. Still, I am sure these could be very useful if you wanted to replace an ageing harddrive, with the smallest ones being aroun 60-80GB these days, and costing more per GB than a cheap 250 or 320GB drive.
