I had this drive in my stock A600 before and it didn't eat up that much. Also, I haven't set up the buffers at all, I loaded without a startup-sequence. Nothing has been loaded.

I can try again, but pretty sure that the hard drive shouldn't eat 650KB of RAM :/ It's a 256MB drive, it is impossible, it woould mean attaching a 512MB drive to a 1MB Amiga would render it useless and that defies logic.

[edit] I just remembered, this might have PFS3 AIO on it, would this eat up more RAM? How can I check if it has PFS3?
