Amiga.org Amiga computer related discussion Amiga Marketplace FA: A shameful piece of Amiga history

Amiga Marketplace This forum is here so that members can alert other members to Amiga items they've seen on eBay (or other auctions). If you are selling Amiga items on eBay, you might let us know about them here. Likewise, if you're selling Amiga items sans eBay, this is the "for sale" forum.

Me too. It never installed on my machine. Amiga support at the time responded that I needed updated drivers. They asked me to sign some sort of a non-disclosure agreement, which I did and faxed back in. They never responded and never gave me access to their download page. I finally sold my copy on eBay.

Yeah, I have to raise my hand here. I played around with the SDK for a while and then then box ended up in a storage box in the attic.
