Re: Using a Baildon Electronics IDE Podule with a CF Card

Should the CF/SD Cards be of a fixed capacity, or can I use any card? The maximum capacity should be 2Gb. You will only be able to format one 500Mb HDD equivalent unless you have something like a Whizzo ROM available, which you would have to load from floppy disk in an A3010 before you could access...

The same way as old school HD's - with HForm. Seems unlikely. Most IDE boards came with a custom format tool. The 8-bit Castle card was a notable exception and ZIDEFS patches Hform to talk to the IDE hardware. I think a Baildon/APDL specific tool is required. Is this tool available for download som...

Re: FOR SALE: 8 & 16 bit IDE Podules

Well that came as a surprise, no interest at all so far. Are people waiting for Dave's Baildon recreations?

I've added to the original listing, I now have some more 16-bit cards available. See the first post in the thread for details.

I was planning another batch, but I've now put that on hold.

It's unlikely to need 4 capacitors. The extra holes are to allow for different physical sized parts. Use the outline that best matches the size of the components you have.

I'm suprised you did it as an adapter board. Wouldn't it be easier to do another board with all the chips on-board that plugs in directly to the RISC-PC.

These won't work in an A3010, they only work on an A3000 as it has a full-size podule on the rear, A3010/A3020 or A4000 don't have this.
