I think the title says it all: I need a new power supply, because I'm planning
to get an SX-1. I can't afford to buy one (I don't think there are any
available here anyway)...

I managed to get hold of an A500 power supply, which has an output rating
of 60watts (the stock CD32 pwr supply is 15watts).

I had to put a new connector onto the the A500 power cable (the CD32 uses
a 4pin Din connector), and used the following pin out:

looking at the din straight on..


"
1o 2o

3o 4o


1= +5
2= +12
3= Gnd
4= not sure what this is, I couldn't get any reading from my multimeter
so I ignored it.

I also put a ground jumper from pin 3 to the shield.

It works just fine on my CD32/FMV/SX1-w/120hd,4mb.
