You'll get 4Gb against 85mb you've got, and store a lot of programs/games inside. Faster, no noise and if you like in the future with a cheap adaptor you can connect it to any PC to transfer files with WinUAE.
Thank you so much Retrofan. Someone has very kindly offered to send me a CF card setup. I'm not sure if it's okay to name them but I am very grateful for their incredibly kind gesture and I should have a CF setup in the next few days

I did try cleaning following your advice and the buds were dark aftewards. So they clearly were a little dirty. The picture still looks the same though.

Why bother with the HD tray, the screw holes don't line up with any modern HD anyway. ;-)
Jope, that sounds like a solution I would go with if I was keeping the 85MB HD.

I may try and source a shorter cable, although I'm not sure what would constitute a better quality cable. The ones I have work fine on Lin/Mac/Win so I would need something besides the standard affair that came with these monitors.

Again, thank you to the donor of a CF card setup. I've actually been quite emotional since I received the PM. And my wife now gets why I love the Amiga scene so much Looking forward to returning the favour some time, for somebody.
