Nice. I have a FastATA4000 mkV in my A4000 with a CF card, 2 x 80GB PATA hard drives and a DVD drive attached. I like the addition of the CF and SATA adapters.

Hi Darrin,

Are you running AmigaOS4.1? With official 4.1 support I'm more inclined to check this out!

No, my A4000 is purely a 68040 in an Elbox tower with Mediator running ClassicWB. The only OS4.x machine I have is the X1000.

It is still a great card for classic use.

What does it improve compared to a MK-V? I'm not interested in cheap adapters that can be bought at dealextreme for 4. Any chance of downloading the contents of the eeprom so we can burn it and install it on older cards?

@Crumb

The main difference between FastATA 4000 MK-VI CF/SATA and the previous models is a completely new firmware in the CPLD chips. In CF/SATA controllers a native support (up to PIO-5) for SATA drives and CompactFlash cards has been added. With older controllers CompactFlash cards and SATA drives with most of the PATA-SATA adapters were supported up to PIO3 only.

New BootROM (ver.7.0) cannot work with the previous FastATA 4000 versions as it calls procedures which are not included in the previous models.

Unfortunately new firmware with CF/SATA support does not fit into chips located in the previous FastATA models (including FastATA MK-V), so we cannot offer any kind of DIY upgrade pack.

Good on Elbox, I resume my A4000T project in the new year and will be sure to order one.
