Csppc Scsi

My CSPPC will not boot unless I hold "S" on power-up to disable its SCSI. I can then boot from floppy. I tried connecting a SCSI drive to my A3KT's motherboard SCSI but then it just hangs up on me. Can I use the A3KT SCSI instead of the CSPPC SCSI? Or can I use another controller, like an A4091, instead of the CSPPC SCSI?

With the newest SCSI chip on the motherboard, it should work fine.

It depends if your A3000T has had what is called the INT2 modification.


The SCSI on the CSPPC is 10x the speed of anything else, so if you can get it working again, it is well worth it.

I had Amiga-Center in France resurrect this CSPPC twice now. I may or may not try it a 3rd time. I don't know if they can fix the SCSI or not.

The A3KT does have the INT2 line and the 74F08 chip in U103. It also has 3.1 ROMs and Buster REV11. I'll have to check the revision of the SCSI, DMAC & RAMSEY. I've read that Phase5 said DMAC & RAMSEY should be 2 & 4 for a CSPPC and not the later revisions.

The CSPPC has the lastest flash update.

New clock battery too, btw.

I've let this sit idle for a while but with OS4 available for CSPPC, I'd like to get it up and running again. It'd be really nice if they released a version that would run on old Mac G3/G4 systems, there's plenty of that hardware floating around in working condition and pretty inexpensive.
