Amiga CD-RW Speed Compatibility

Hi

I was wondering how fast a CD-RW can the default ide interface of the Amiga 4000 handle?

Cheers

Hi

Well my Amiga setup will be an A4000 with CSMK3 060 and 148mb (i think) if this helps.

Get a SCSIDE adapter and plug the CD drive into your SCSI chain in that case.

Just about all Amiga IDE solutions suck.

Get a 68pin SCSI cable that has a built in active terminator on one end and enough connectors for the devices you are planning to connect.

This is the exact brand/model I'm using

http://cgi.ebay.com/Brand-New-Adapte...QQcmdZViewItem

It's very flexible and easy to route and has built in active terminators at each end which you need with a CS MKIII or CS PPC

How much do SCSI-IDE adapters cost? And they make possible to connect an IDE drive to a SCSI-chain right?

Around 40-80 depending on what model (UWSCSI, LVD etc) and used or new
Using both them in both my PC and two of my Amiga's..both 50 pin and 68 pin adapters...works like a charm
