I thought about it but the problem is with finding all the deprecated 40 pins connectors, designing the circuit (that would probably mandate a double sided PCB), making it.... Lot's of troubles for a result that is not even guaranteed. Another, better solution, would be an ISA bus extender for the Q40/Q60, so that a second IDE controller card can be plugged (along the first one and the Ethernet card); I still have a couple such IDE (in fact IDE + serial + parallel ports) cards, but with the two slots already occupied on the Q60, I cannot use them. But I still don't despair to find a memory card adapter that will allow us to share the IDE bus and that does work... Thierry. _______________________________________________ QL-Users Mailing List
