I'm pretty sure Scala is still updated and maintained, with much newer versions of the designer and player than a 2004 release. I know I've occasionally seen it in use recently on Windows 7 systems...

Well, at least you know now. I don't really know what cards are compatible or not, by the various threads about it I would suspect it's simply hit and miss - some manufacturers just don't bother...

Which device are you searching? Try searching on atapi.device instead of scsi.device, just in case the CD-ROM drive is a little picky. Also, you can't be sure that the CD drive and CF card are fully...

Yeah, the CD32 (and analogue controllers) make things trickier in cases like these. As a thought, what about an analogue switch? I'm not sure myself since I haven't tried it, but chips like the 4066...

Indeed, not a lot of use was made of the chipset features since it was all 3D and therefore CPU-bound. It really needs a faster CPU (some fast RAM helps too) - without that, having extra colours...
