Amiga 500


I just came back from my vacation in Turkey and found out that my internal A500 IDE hard drive interface that I ordered had finally came. I was eager to try it out in my Amiga 500 project I have been tinkering with during the past six months.

The Multivision 500 is a scandoubler/flicker fixer for the Amiga 500 (that can also function with an Amiga 1000) and is internally mounted. The small circuit board is pressed into the Denise socket, and the Denise chip is removed and mounted onto the Multivision.

The Amiga 500 has been hailed for its all in one package but I always felt that it was unnecessary large design for what it was. You would need quite a large desk to be able to carry a full size Amiga 500 setup.

I got an idea today to try out if the Buddha Flash Phoenix edition Zorro2 IDE controller works in an A500 through an 86-pin to 100-Pin adapter.

It did not work.

Allright, it is time for me to set this blog back on the right track after last post about vintage PC hardware.

Today I got a package of IC-sockets, pin-headers and other nice electronic stuff to have around from Conrad. Conrad is a very complete mail order warehouse, originally from Germany. Now they are in Sweden too. I suggest everyone to order their 800 page catalog at once, it is really fun to read!

I have a spring project that I work on in my free time –mostly during weekends. The project is based around an Amiga 500 and the aim for the project is to muscle it up with various hardware accessories in a professional way.

I have not touched my A500 for the past three weeks since I was waiting for my first ever eBay buy –a Multivision 500 scandoubler that fits inside the Amiga. I thought the package would show up at me in one week max, but turned out it took three weeks for it to travel all the way from Germany to Sweden. Anyway perhaps it was good since I have been quite busy with other things during the last weeks.
