Amiga 4000: CF Card Conversion

I decided to do the conversion to improve speed, noise, and space dramatically. I decided to put the card in the unused Expansion hole in the case. A few well placed Dremel cuts later, it was mounted! Unfortunately since I don’t have a drill press, one hole was slightly off of the other, so it’s sorta crooked. I’ll fix that someday. I used the IDE CF card reader I had mounted on the bracket of an old PCMCIA PCI card adapter

The biggest problem was getting power over to it as the floppy power cable from the power supply isn’t long enough. Hacking time! Nothing like putting an old PC PSU to good use. I spliced it in with a old fan pass through.
