I have been using the Buddha IDE device for almost 1 year now with great satisfaction. Last night, after along break, I fired up the A2000 and noticed that drives connected to the Buddha were no longer available from workbench. I reboot and checkout the expansions in early startup. The buddha is not listed as one of the cards. I reseated the card and also tried the card i different slots. I also tried removing all components so that the buddha was the only expansion. But alas, it doesn't appear to work any more. The device is no longer listed under "expansions" in early startup. I have double checked tha J2 and J3 are open (I use only cables, not DOMs).
Might it be that my poor Buddha has passed away? Would it be worth replacing the resistor (there is an arrow pointing to a resister with the words "Replace if you plugged the card in the wrong way" or something similar).
Is there any point to attempt to write new firmware to the card?
Can I have the card service or, in the worst case replaced (I would buy a new one if the warranty is finished).
Something else I should try?
