Towerizing A1200 – part 3

This is a short post on the updated project.

I just found out that the PCMCIA port on the motherboard that came with the tower components is damaged. The right side ‘channel’ where you slide in either a cord or angle adapter was broken off ( the plastic ). I could live with that but then I noticed that one of the pins inside was horribly bent. Trying to fix it caused it to break.

I’m not sure, but I doubt a card will work in that now. I guess I could try once I get the harddrive started up. I’m also having problems finding the combo of adapters needed to get my CF card connected to the 2.5 connector. I don’t recall having this many problems 20 years ago!

More updates later.
