Would this work? ---> A500Plus Trapdoor RAM expansion in regular A500

Hi guys,

I have a no-name brand A500Plus 1MB chip ram trapdoor expansion card which I would like to try and use in a regular A500 unit, as 512kb of slow ram.

Would this work? Is there any danger in trying it out?


Thanks!

I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work..

I guess I am a little concerned in case there is something different electronically between the A500 and A500Plus trapdoor ports / ram cards, which may damage the Amiga. Just want to find out if anyone has done it before and what were the results.

That's exactly how it works (except on latest rev motherboard?) I.e. depending on Agnus and Gary version the same RAM becomes chip else fast.
