For sale: Rare Amiga A590 hard drive and memory expansion. I received this unit as part of a lot, and it did not work.
To make it into something useful, I added the max memory (2 MB), updated the roms, and added the latest SCSI2SD adapter with a 2 GB microSD. I wasn't sure about what to do about the power supply until I read that it is only there to supply power to old power-hungry HDDs. If you use an SD card you can use the Amiga 500's bus power.So I ran the wire and presto! One less power supply on the desk. The internal fan designed to cool the HDD is unplugged for completely silent operation, but it is still in there and works fine if you want to plug it back in. This A590 has been extensively tested. Plug it in to your A500, turn the Amiga on, and you will have Workbench up and running in 20-30 seconds! I have installed the microSD with workbench 1.3, but you can do whatever you like.
Comes with original documentation, working setup disk, and the bracket for mounting on the A500 case. The item "Commodore Amiga A590 Hard Drive + Memory. SCSI2SD with 2 GB SD.
