Cool! Any compatibility issues?

I have another built-in adapter but I can't seem to be able to use the 8GB Sandisk Extreme-IV card together with my old 3.5" harddisk, which I have to to transfer all data. The CF card just gets trashed and the A1200 crashes when I try to copy data.

Any guarentee that this won't happen with this adapter?

Btw. I have a FastATA'99.

- Don't get fooled by my avatar, I'm not like that (anymore, mostly... maybe only sometimes)

That is highly likely a result of the NSDPatch or EIDE'99 software not being installed fully. Remember that unpatched Amiga SCSI devices are compliant up to 4GB only.

A cool little device for the A1200. I still prefer my big box Classic Amigas though.
