Hello,

By this time tomorrow I will have an Acorn A3000, does anyone have or know
of a person or company that still sells hard discs for use in A3000s? I have
a plan to network my PC to my Acorn for file transfer and as a storage area,
but this may take a month or two.
If you have any information on a hard drive or on non-commerical PC-Acorn
networking software (not !OmniClient as it is commerical), please email me
at sgch...@btinternet.com

Thanks in advance

Matthew

I think they were still listed in the last Castle peice list I saw.

You do realise you can only have one internal expansion card in an A3000
don't you?
ie you cannot have a hard disc interface and a network card in there at the
same time.

But you can fit a standard A310 style network card on the external expansion interface

Indeed you can. NB You'll probably have to attach it with tape and a
suitable 'box expansion' though! Messy business, but it does work.
Surprised me when I saw that, too!
