Re: Configuring CD ROM drive under RO 3.50D

Ah ok. I've got these cards in some other RPCs, and I thought they had been designed because of the rather weird implementation of IDE by Acorn ... Still I don't understand how the previous owner of this RPC managed to access his/her CD ROM drive. I have found no support, after searching in all the ...

Configuring CD ROM drive under RO 3.50D

Ok so I've got this nice German RPC with RO 3.50, but how can I tell it it's got a CD ROM drive ?
In the configuration panel, there's no CD ROM choice, and status doesn't report any CDFS module ...
I'm a bit lost.
After the Archies I must admit it has started to be too complicated for me ... #-o

You know I'm half crazy, but is it the good half ?

Even better sound for the Archies ...

I'd like to mod another machine like an A3000, with another operational amplifier.

Which one would be an even better choice than the OPA4134PA Burr Brown OPA ?

Thanks for your help.
