Amiga A4000 progress/pics

Just thought I'd throw this out.....I'm just getting near where I want everything so showing a quick pictures (excuse the dust/dirt/clutter).

My A4000 is booting of a CF Card reader and I have a SATA SSD drive for storage using a SATA to IDE converter. That's taking up Master 0/Slave 1. I have the 4-Way IDE adapter and have s Slim DVD-RW drive (with slim IDE to 40pin IDE adapter) on channel 3 (no jumpers to make it 2).

A friend helped me acquire a few items and one was a X-Surf 100 with RapidRoad USB attached. I just got the adapter/face plate in for it and installed and snapped a picture.

I have the Slim DVD-RW and the IDE "boot" CF card in the 5.25" bay, below that I picked up a multi-device USB 2.0 reader, and below that I have the floppy drive. The SSD drive is still looking for a place to be mounted and I have to do a lot of cable cleanup/routing before putting the case together.

In the multi-device USB 2.0 reader I have another CF card and a USB stick being mounted with Poseidon. Interestingly...the CF Card was prepped as RDB under WinUAE and it mounted it as the UDH0: drive it was configured as.

After taking the picture I plugged in a Micro-SD card in as well...so I had the CF card, the USB stick and the Micro-SD all mounted on my Workbench.

Eh...here's my Workbench (1024x768 - HighGFX and Indivision AGA)

SystemOS is the boot IDE cf card reader
System is the CF card in the USB reader (since I was using it in WinUAE)
Files is the Micro-SD in the USB reader
PICS is the USB stick in the USB reader
NAS1 is one of my NAS device's drives

The others are on the SSD drive.

I think it looks pretty sweet so far. I need to retro-bright the front bezel, it's pretty yellow (and not in the picture).

Here's a more direct view, removed the USB stick but the others are still in...

And I've picked up an A4000T (Escom) and started transferring some of the pieces over from the A4000D to the A4000T.

I had a 5.25" bay that holds a 3.5" device not being used, so put the USB 2.0 Multi-card reader in it. Not sure this will stay, I may replace it with a standard 3.5" to 5.25" adapter that centers the 3.5" device since the 2 side USB ports aren't connected internally.

Since I was missing a few pieces with my A4000D I found some .stl files online and had a coworker print them out for me. Hard drive mounting brackets and the larger front 3.5" bezel cover.

Not that I need the front bezel piece but nice to have. Definitely wanted the HD brackets though..

I made a pair of A4000 HD mounting brackets out of a pot noodle container :-) Any thick plastic will do!

Awesome, very ingenious. I had searched for the parts and found the .stl files and remembered a coworker received a 3d printer from his wife for Christmas....so I asked if he'd print them and he agreed. Of course now I've downloaded all the A4000 parts I could find to see what else he's willing to print

I now want a 3d printer myself....

Replaced the tray-load DVD-RW drive with a Slot-Load DVD-RW drive. I didn't care for the thin slide out tray on the tray-load drive and thought this would look better.

Do you have the part number or make/model of your Slim CD Drive bay?

I tried a couple, one was this which I painted white:
https://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-T.../dp/B007C1KPQY
I put a slot load DVD with a SCSI converter and an SSD in it but in retrospect I'd prefer having a faster CF be external there.

And the Silver USB 2.0 version of this:
https://www.amazon.com/Syba-Adapter-.../dp/B0081IOSOW

I like yours better.

I got the bracket and the CF Card reader from Amazon. The front piece of the bracket is detachable (break off) so it either stays on to cover a driver or nothing or you break it off if you have something with external facings (cf card reader, floppy drive, USB hub, etc..).

Bracket:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

CF Card Reader:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And this slim IDE to 40pin IDE adapter allowed me to set the drive as Master or Slave, so the CF Card is Master (it has Master/Slave jumpers too) and the DVD is Slave on the internal IDE controller.

Adapter:

Great setup! I have a similar setup, running nice in AOS3.9, but somehow AmigaOS4.1 FE Classic doesn't recognise the CDROM on the secondary IDE cable
