Amiga 1200/600 and WiFi SD card


I was thinking about a faster way to (cross)develop on PC and test on real HW and I found the following (crazy?) idea.

The A1200/600 has a PCMCIA_2_CF adapter, a CF_2_SD adapter and a Toshiba Flash Air SD card.

This SD card has a WiFi module and can be read/write through HTTP commands (see https://flashair-developers.com/en/documents/api/)

I develop on PC (WinUAE, VBCC, etc...) and when I'm ready to test on real HW I push the executable via HTTP and reboot the Amiga. The Amiga has a boot sequence which looks for the executable on the SD card and execute it if available.

I know it is tricky to find HW that works with such old computers and in this case 4 difference pieces of HW have to collaborate, so I'm skeptic but nevertheless it would be great, if working.

My question is: Does someone tried one of these SD-Wifi card on an A1200/A600 ? Do they work? What combination of HW was tested?

Thanks for your attention!

might try this, i have a direct PCMCIA to SDHC card reader.

The PCMCIA to CF adapters are just pin-to-pin afaik. of course you could also use a floppy drive emulator which takes SD cards like the HxC

edit: actually after looking into this it seems it's designed for reading the files with your PC while the card is still in your camera, not sure if writing is possible over wifi too.

edit2: also it requires SDHC compatible card reader so watch out for that.
