Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift.

Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of.

RISCPC 600 motherboard for sale/swap

Post by anightin » Mon Dec 10, 2018 12:46 pm

I have just cleaned and repaired an 197,100, circa 1994, battery damaged RISCPC 600 motherboard and its now working as far as I can tell.

It has RISCOS 3.5 in ROM, and I can throw in a 1MB video RAM and

First opening of case after 20 years!
I think 10Mb of memory and maybe an ARM 610 CPU card.


Rather than languishing in my spares pile ticking away on its new battery, I thought it might be put to better use.

I'm after all/any of:

* Bitstik ROM for BBC (Master)
* AcornSoft Starship Command on 5 1/4" Floppy
* Acorn Archimedes Pin Badge

Would prefer to swap for items above but would consider cash as an alternative.

They should appear instantly. Even if you can't send PMs you can receive them. I've enabled send on your account.

Not sure if Bitstik ever came with an actual rom. Mine (fully boxed with manual etc, so presumably as sold) came with a labelled eprom.
IIRC my prestel adapter also came with a labelled eprom. Perhaps Acorn only made real roms for the stuff they expected to sell a reasonable amount of?

Happy to send you an image of the bitstik eprom if that helps...

Thanks that would be really useful. I have an EPROM programmer and a spare 8KB EPROM.

I have the BBC B, Second Processor, Dual disk drive, Bitstik, Bitstik disks but no ROM :roll:
