Out of interest does anyone know why this is?

Caution: UDMA cables cannot be used with this controller.
I thought UDMA cables were backwards compatible?

rave 04 January 2018 15:37

I think its to do with connected/not connected and grounding?

ordered min & my A4000 can't wait:great I'm assuming we can install a larger size DOM in the Buddha once it's all set up ??

idrougge 31 January 2018 09:27

Yes we can.

Had an email Monday that my preorder had been dispatched... so they are out in the wild a bit early :)

@ wmsteele

got same message today too so good news :spin

Good news. They are significantly cheaper than the IDE4 Zorro II which is about 100 Euro.

Make Amiga great again.

The no-UDMA cable is most likely due to them using 40 pin connectors instead of the keyed 39/40 pin connectors required to use a UDMA cable.

We will have our stock imminently at Amiga Kit

wish they worked :/

MrX_Cuci 19 February 2018 21:13

Probably a stupid question, but why would you use this instead of a compact flash card?

Amiga 2000 and 3000 have no IDE and so can't use CF without a Buddha or similar

The question should be why would you use this instead of the latest SCSI2SD?

Because A2000 doesn't come with SCSI?

why pick one or the other;) I've got a scsi2sd board on my CS-MKIII but I can't boot WB off it so need to use the onboard IDE on my A4k which is blah so that's why I got the Buddha:great

idrougge 21 February 2018 01:17

The Buddha isn't faster than the onboard IDE.
