View Full Version : cdrom help

I have an old Power Computing external scsi cdrom which has died but the external adaptor case seems to be working fine. Does anyone know if I can just whack another scsi cdrom in and have it work?

I would imagine so
Hi mikey, I was just wondering how did you have it hooked up to your system and what amiga your using? Was there any problems with your amiga recognising it or did it just pop up on the work bench when you inserted a disk? I'm thinking of hooking a external scsi to my 1200 via the db25 plug on the back of my unit. The plug leads from my 'accelerator' card which I'm pretty sure has SCSI.

Uh, what is your board Pete ?

I have it hooked up with a Squirrel PCMCIA SCSI interface. Simple and transparent operation.
Put a disk in there it would be on the Workbench.
Worked brilliantly until the drive karked it.
The only drawback was having to get an "L" adaptor for the PCMCIA slot when I relocated my 1200 into an old 386 server tower.
I know the later Blizzard boards had an add on SCSI module and some other boards did as well IIRC.
I don't recall there being any operational problems with them but you would be better asking someone who has used one (anyone?).
If the module is there and the software is installed then I guess you should be all go.
