    Amiga 500+ Vampire and zorro adaptor, the Buddha and rapidroad usb are plugged into zorro. USB is working fine.


    I can see the install Dom and it works ok, also HD and CF are working ok in the other ide port.


    When i plug in cd-rom its not seen (works fine in A4000 and on X-Surf on same zorro adaptor)


    I also tried 3 other cd-roms. All were tried on single cable with cd-rom set as master


    Am i missing something?


    Thanks

    Hard to tell from your description, as I don't know how you attempt to "see" the CD drive. Note that CD-ROM drives need a separate installation, as they do not behave like harddisks, hence they are NOT shown in HDToolbox. This installation includes a CD file system and a mountlist entry. Please share this mountlist entry and the version of the Buddha flash ROM that you're using, so we can verify if the device/filesystem names are correct.


    Some CD-Rom drives will only identify properly if a data-CD is inserted - you might want to do that when attempting to install the CD drive for the first time.

    I will try again with cd in drive and let you know how I get on.

    I only got the buddha last week from yourselves so I assume latest flash rom - I will try again and post a copy of mountlist if im getting nowhere

  • That's funny - the cable has literally nothing to do with master/slave. That's completely covered in software, and both master and slave use the same set of signals on the cable.


    If that cable was purchased from us, please mention the order ID.
