    Have a look at [ Show youtube player ] and this post on Lemon Amiga.
    I am sure there are many on the EAB as well but for some reason I could not find them.
  • 2) Kipper2K used to make IDE boards for the A500 to which you could plug a CF connector but I am not sure if he still does.
    But Individual Computers are working on a complete A500 memory + CF + plenty of goodness board which should be released around the end of this year. If you have the money and the patience, this should be a most excellent deal.
    I am planning to buy it.
  • 4) Yes, and you should! The tank mouse is horrible. Have a look at this thread:

Hope this helps.
(And welcome back.)
