£ for assistance (commutable Portsmouth UK) installing and setting up Gotek in a2000

Hello

I have an a2000, and a Gotek that needs installing.

I am completely incompetent when it comes to this stuff and I really need assistance in getting it installed and setup.

I want to use it for playing games so would be willing to pay someone a fee to install the gotek for me and then put the games onto a USB drive for me.

I live in Portsmouth (Hampshire, UK) and would be willing to drive it to you and then go off and wait elsewhere.

If there is anyone out there willing to assist a novice in distress then please let me know

Of course I would be willing to pay you for your time and the service.

I dont mind driving a little way either.

Many thanks

Simon

Are you able to assist at all?

I’ll sort your Gotek out for free if you can pick me up or come to me

I sadly have no car over that weekend I’m home for.

Hi, any idea of how much you might roughly sell it for? And does it have a keyboard? Thanks.

What is a TF238? When I google for it, I get either a pair of sunglasses or a travel shocks and mounting kit...?

There was also a round meat ball forming machine..

Just curious...

TF238 is just a typo for TF328 - an expansion for CD32 with IDE controller and (up to) 8MB FastRAM

Look at this thread - http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=72361

I had a good laugh reading this and imagining why one of these would make SimonCD32 decide to sell his A2000.

I wouldn't get rid of the 2000. You'll find that a lot of things will not work on the 68020!

Not when running WHDload. The TF328 effectively turns it into a 1200
