Looks the same yes. They are the same 184-pin connectors. Works the same. Highly doubtful. No-one is every going to try.

Why would you want to? The SX32 card has far more ports.

Graphics accelerator??

15KHz RGB video. I think the designer wanted a VGA type connector when he specified his schematics, which is a 15-pin Sub-D but he put 15-pin D by mistake and the layout people just made what he asked for.

A500 yes, A1200... depends on RAM usage. The CD32 eats slightly more RAM on boot than A1200 but mostly yes.

You're joking right? This is the most ugly Mofo in existance. You'd pay 50 instead of 5 for an external floppy drive so it doesn't have a cable?? If you absolutely need an FDD (I've never used one ever with my SX32) then just sit it on top of the CD32+SX32 and use some contact adhesive and you'd never know the difference beauty and aesthetics wise

But you have an SX32. You don't need to use a floppy drive. You've got 8Mbytes of RAM and a hard drive. You can play almost every single game from HD using WHDload. No messing about with disks.
