    OK, I tried the 8MB RAM card on my Escom A1200 and it doesn't work. I really didn't expect it to after you said it hadn't worked for you. That's why I haven't been in too much of a hurry to try it myself.
    As supplied, it just killed the machine - and also with all other combinations of jumper setting.
    The A1200 boots fine with my Analogic 8MB card fitted - it just doesn't register any additional RAM when it's not working properly. But when I fitted the SIMM from your card in it and plugged it into the trapdoor expansion of my A1200, it red-screened and gave me a defective expansion card message. This led me to believe that maybe your 8MB SIMM was defective, but when I fitted the 8MB SIMM from my Analogic card into your card and tried it, my Amiga was still dead.
    The strange thing is, that when I refitted my 8MB SIMM to the Analogic card and tried it again, the A1200 booted up fine and reported 2MB Chip RAM + 8MB, so it's working again!!! :D
    I will try your 8MB SIMM in my Macintosh Performa 6200 tomorrow, but it does look like your 8MB RAM card is still faulty.

    Thanks. If he has one, I would really like it, as I can't do anything at all at the desktop and those mice do seem quite rare. Fortunately, the Risc OS User Guide provided enough info for me to use the command line to check that it's all working properly. :)

    just had a look for mouse, only got serial pc mice, all end in 9pin din apart from a genuis which ends in 23pin and has 3 buttons, I`ll ask on tuesday if he has one and what he wants for it, we did`t see one in that big box of wires and stuff I`m sure you would have had it if we had.

    I really need an Archie mouse (3 button "tank" type with 9-pin mini-DIN plug). (Charlie has 1MB RAM upgrade and 3.1 ROMs.) Nope, I've heard nowt lately from Doog (just like everyone else ;)). I wish I'd noticed the missing mouse when we were there. :(

    It's funny you should mention that. It crossed my mind that I hadn't tried it when I was reassembling the A3000. Will try it next, before I have a look at the Macs. :D
