Smile Hello from UK

Hi all,

I'm new to this board. But I've had various Amigas since the 1980s.

I've een using emulators in the the past to play my favorite games.

Just getting back into using the hardware got my old Amigas an A600 and 1200 back out. Just bought a CDTV and I'm having a bit of trouble with it.

My original A500 is still in storage.

Quick question. Can I ask multiple questions per post? Didn't see that covered in the usage guidelines.


My WB1.3 A500 was my first computer. Used it daily until late 1990s.

Bought an A600 for £5 church sale when I was on holiday/vacation several years ago.

And bought an A1200 with a view to putting it in a tower case (but I never did).

Just discovered the hidden history of the A600, hint, it no longer works. (More on that later). The good news is, the FDD replaced the drive on the A1200 which was known to be broken when I bought it. I now have a working A1200.

Looking for some advice. Willing to engage in chat on Amiga topics, will offer help if I can,
but it's been a long time since I used theses system seriously, and I doubt I was ever what could be called a power user.

Hi amiga88,

Thanks for your introductory post and welcome aboard.

Yes, you can ask as many questions as you like in one post, but please bear in mind that some of the the answers you receive may lead to more questions, so it's better to ask one question at a time in each thread, unless the questions are very closely related.

Unrelated questions are better posted in separate threads, and in separate forums if appropriate.

I'm sure you'll soon get the hang of things.
