Yeah i bought Q-Drive long before i build the AT power supply (which i build yesterday). I even got a metal-case to put a standard ide cdrom into.
Today i tried to plug a cdrom (Asus CDRW 52x24x52x). It worked flawless but it made alot of noise. I tested out the transfer rate with SysInfo and it showed up something like 1,8 MB/sec. Ok, its 3 times faster than my Q-Drive, but the Q-Drive makes not that much noise. (In fact its really a slient thing).
Hmm a network card you say.... to transfer files between pc and amiga.... but as the amiga games and tools arent that big i could burn thousands of lha or lzx archives to a cd and put it into the Q-Drive, and i really dont want to use the amiga for internet.
But thanks for the ideas and infos to all. What i have to do is to find a solution for the power switch. Its really not that good to have 220V in your hands everytime you turn on your amiga
PS Ofcourse you all were right saying that i have to remove the cow spots. It looks muuuuuuuchhhhhh nicer now.
