It's for the A500, but inside is a 20Mb XT-IDE.
I know at least one of you has been hunting for something XT IDEish that wasn't a CF card.

Yeah I have been - for an A590 nonetheless! :lol:

I actually need a couple, one for the A590 (or a SCSI drive - it has dual controllers inside there) and one for my PC10-III. Not sure I'd hack up a working A590 mind you, would probably just use that unit as it sits and sell the other one.

eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.
