Connecting a IDE CDrom drive to my A1200 & accelerator card

Hi All

Looking for, How to guide
to Connecting a IDE CDrom drive to my A1200

I have The 4-Device Buffered IDE interface for the Amiga A1200

TEAC CD-224E / Dell 079ETT CD ROM Drive (B94 Version)

And I am having some troubles with my
Microbotics M1230XA accelerator card

Put it in to the A1200 and it do not show up
in ( BOOT Screen ) or then WB is loaded too
Do i need a driver for the accelerator card and
do i need KS 3.1 Rom install.

My A1200 as KS 3.0 Rom install

About the card you can download manual and software here:


perhaps you can find in it a solution.
With KS3.0 the memory on this card needs to be configured, but without SIMM your Amiga should boot.

- I would test it without RAM and with a different SIMM.
- I would verify if the card really doesn't touch the metal shield inside the A1200.
- If you have a 3,5" hard drive you could have power issue.

About the CD-ROM drive:

If the CD-ROM drive is being mounted externally, connect a 40-way ribbon cable from the drive to the secondary IDE channel on the 4-way buffered interface. Configure the drive as Master and supply power to it from a PC PSU Molex connector.

Install IDEFix to get the CD-ROM drive recognized.

Think about mounting the drive internally when you've got it working properly.
