RE: [Electronics_101] Re: CD ROM
- I still have my A500, the disks and the monitor.. The monitor when out on it.. I think it was something like a 1824 .. not sure on the model # now.. I should probably fix it sometime. You can still pick Amiga's up fairly cheap on ebay (even have some new in the box) but I bought mine from a commodore store before commodore went and screwed all their vendors by selling them so cheap to kmart that the vendors could go down to kmart and buy them cheaper than commodore was selling them at dealer pricing.-----Original Message-----

I use my Amiga every day, and it's actually what I'm using now to write
these Emails. You'd probably be amazed at the spec. Here goes:
Voodoo3 3000 GFX card
Terratec512i Sound Card
5x USB2 slots (SpiderII USB)
WinTV Primio TV-In card
2x 40GB HDs
6 in 1 flash card reader
All housed in Elbox's new Mirage Tower.
AmigaOS 3.9 (OS4 as soon as it's released)
Good eh? And I bet you didn't know there were new Amigas being released with
modern PPC processors and a new Operating System due out which is PPC native

- Hey Peter,
I actually did a similar project once in my bathroom (of all placed)
and found a very nice CD-ROM by Creative. (no, I don't work there)
The series is called Infra AudioExcel and should go for around US$
50,- in the US and has a remote control as the name suggests. Just
hook up 12v and 5v at the suggested rating and you're done. The
phunny thing about this player is that if you stick a piece of
plastic in the headphone connector it automatically activates the
volume control on the standard audio connector (the four pin type) on
the back of the unit. Really great piece of hardware. Give it a go...
Hope this helps...

- I think you are right that's why running in DOS requires CD drivers.Tony----- Original Message -----From: peter tremewenSent: Tuesday, July 01, 2003 8:51 AMSubject: Re: [Electronics_101] Re: CD ROMI didn't realise that the audio function was "automatic", thought it was \under computewr control at least a bit.The Sinister Dragon
