Compact Flash PCMCIA on an A600

Hi, apologies if this has been asked a zillion times! Trying to return to the scene...

I've got a Compact Flash / PCMCIA solution ready to go with a boot disk, I only want to use it on an A600* to transfer ADF's back to floppy, would I still need to upgrade the RAM and hunt down a particular version of Kickstart that recognises the card size, as I have seen said various posts dotted about saying this.

*This is all in theory as I haven't purchased an A600 yet, but I hope you get my drift! (still saving up)

thanks in advance!

If it's all about turning adf files into real floppies any unexpanded A600 should do, or at least that was my experience when I first came back to Amiga-land some years ago. MY A600 had a 2.05 kickstart (rev 37.300) and just 1 MB of chip RAM. It booted from the disk included on a PCMCIA-CF adapter kit which included the needed drivers to handle the external CF and programs to make the adf-real foppy conversion (like adf2disk)

In no time, anyway, I wanted to play games straight out of the CF card, so upgrading to 2 MB and eventually adding an internal hard disk to boot from made life easier

Our EasyADF PCMCIA CF Transfer Kit requires 1MB of RAM (self booting) so that would be sufficient.
