2091 ROM Image (Version 7)
I purchased two four GB SCSI hard drives on Ebay without realizing that I needed version 7 ROMs on the 2091 in order to see the drive properly (I currently have version 6.6 installed on the 2091 card). My friend lent me his EPROM burner and I figured that I could just erase my 6.6 ROMs and then burn the 7.0 ROMs. The only problem is, I've been searching the Internet for a couple of days and I can't find the 2091 version 7.0 ROM images anywhere. Does anyone have a copy that they can email me? (Or is there an area on this message board to post temp files like this?)

Out of curiosity would these ROMS be compatible with an A590?

Someone please verify whether this works with DMAC-1, or does it need the DMAC-2?

I remember messing around with A590/2091 ROMs and at least V6.6 seemed to require the DMAC-2.. :-)

can someone post the roms again in the zone?

I used to repair Amiga's back in the early 90's (Video Toaster systems, mostly) and I seem to recall that 7.0 was unstable. I distinctly remember downgrading the EPROMs back to 6.6 whenever we got new cards in. I couldn't begin to remember what the issue was, though.

Some random information:

I have confirmed 6.x versions don't work very well with >1G devices. (only partitions that are under 1G mount properly)

Easy workaround: use PFS3ds (PFS3 with direct scsi). It seems to work fine, at least on CDTV. Tested with 4G CF card on SCSI-IDE bridge.

(CDTV scsi.device is slightly modified 6.x version and also has >1G problem)

A2091/A590 Boot Rom
Hi Guys
Have tried downloading the zip file but keep being told it's empty when trying to uncompress. Any chase you could pls reupload, again it's for a WinUAE config.

Many thanks in advance

IE is buggy, use Firefox, Opera or something else to download then it should work.

TheCorfiot 03 February 2008 19:13

cheers duke

The archive works for me in WinRAR.

"Not doing something" still isn't acceptable bug report. Please try again :)

As was explained in other thread, web server sends it gzipped and IE has issues with "double" compressed files.

TheCorfiot 03 February 2008 19:38

Hi Toni,

Here's a bit more depth, I downloaded the file from the zone using Opera on WinXP then uncompressed using WinRar to produce the 2 8K Rom files.
Dropping them into my "Roms" folder for WinUAE (after changing the names to include .ROM ext) and running Rom Scan a get a report back stating 2091/590 SCSI Rom unavailable.

Appreciate the help
