    Well yeah, other amigas couldn't read them unless they had a HD floppy drive as well, but that didn't really matter to me, and it most certainly did work, Power Computing used to sell them

    I got my case and CD ROM drive (Black, Caddy, SCSI) from them. Didn't like their prices though. They seemed high.

    Still makes me laugh how Amigas can read Amiga, PC and Mac discs and PCs cant.

    I had a rocking 2x cdrom on my amiga and a 120mb HD. My mate had a 68030 50mhz 10mb ram and a 80mb HD, he could just run Lightwave.

    Anyways I'd be interested in that Optorite too, otherwise my other option is a retail box Sony 510UA for £130 at dixons of all places.

    Remember the cheaper sony U10A can be flashed to the 500A.

    I had a 540MB Drive, 10MB Ram, 68040 (25mhz), 4x CDRom and some other stuff.

    Still recommend the Plextor. Has brunt all the crap media I have thrown at it, and has burned discs that would burn at all on my other drives, at 40x.

    Amigas ruled! It's a shame C= just sat on the technology and got fat on profits until the rest of the world sailed by .... then too late they decide to up the ante with A600 & A1200 ... no HDs and no 2MB floppy drives ... dumb a$$es! Whatever happened to those alledged 'new' Amigas? Sorry off topic, don't worry.

    Yeah it's certainly a great idea but I think it will be much like those 120MB (IIRC) floppy drives which could read and write like a normal floppy BUT also write to special floppies which could hold 120MB instead fo 1.4MB. I think it will prove very useful for data backups and stuff where the added capacity on the same cheap CDR media will be a benefit over compatibility. With Suspicion over lastability of 700MB on CDRs (possibilities of < 2 years) I would question how safe any data would be when writing 1.4GB on them. Anyway it certainly sounds useful but with DVD writers and media ever declining in cost it may be too late for it to catch on or prove useful.

    PS. Also reminds of all those guys punching an extra hole in a 720k floppy disk to make it store 1.4MB .... and those who forced the floppy to store more than 1.4MB on it via sw too!
    Not sure about HD-Burn, but I think the main problem with the Plextor is that it is too expensive.. £70+ for a CDRW, why not pay a lil more for a DVD Burner.

    As for the quality.. Well, I haven't had it too it too bad from old disks.. My TDK discs are fine, and my Taiyo Yuden Discs are mostly fine even though my CDRW was pretty dead then..
