I had a look at Matze's code. He's not being nearly as sneaky as I am. Its possibly there are some remaining issues there. Hopefully not.
there are indeed..he can't beat it for a long time, card is booting, ram seems to be fine, yet not usable - freezes popping out here and there...maybe You can give him a hepling hand ;)
some hints or tips would be nice cause atm he is so frustrated, even ready to drop - that will be a real pity... :?

Ask him to start a thread on here and we'll compare notes. I have tried a few different approaches. One has worked very well.

Excellent news Stephen. I haven’t had the chance to catch the last stream yet but will do so today.

My DB23s have also just arrived yesterday. The customs took a bigger chunk than expected so will have to work out what the whole thing comes to and if it’s worth sending to the UK for Mark.

Nice :mrgreen:

Did you wire it directly to the tf330, or does it simply go via the motherboard like the cdrom activity?

It works like CDROM activity. Using the standard mechanism.

I dont think i've ever put one of my boards in a case before... maybe once.

Stephen, what condition are the CD32s sold by Analogic? Is it console only or do they come with the controller and PSU as well?

Mine has a case repair but otherwise seems fine. The case looks like it was cracked at one point

It came with a PSU no plug or controller
