@amigakit
Thanks for helping keep out classic Amiga's alive by funding on going hardware and software development.

If the FastATA MK-IV is just a software/firmware update version of the existing FastATA adapters would it be possible to purchase an upgrade kit to fix/upgrade our existing boards as I don't want to binning existing working hardware to get a firmware upgrade.

In the past I paid about 25 to update the firmware of my Mediator SX to a TX would a similar deal be possible here?

not to mention that on both my systems (one mediator based the other just bvision) the mkIII version hangs at anything beyond PIO0 with several drives tried. On the same systems with the same drives my trusty mkI gets a full PIO5. What's the guarantee mkIV won't be as lousy as mkIII?
