IDE-fix Express adapter - your controller switches to turbo!
It is installed over top of the Gayle chip of the A1200, and a small cable connects express-adapter and IDE-fix adapter. You can easily find out if your adapter is prepared for use with the express-adapter: It must be black. If your 4-drive interface is green, it cannot be used with the express-adapter. Don't worry - we have an unbeatable bundle price for the new IDE-fix adapter, the express adapter and the special IDE-fix express software license.
Transfer rates of more than 5.1 MBytes per second are reached with the express adapter. The two IDE-ports are now handled as if they were two separate IDE controllers, that means that two actions can be handled at a time - this is perfect for IDE-CD writers, because writing a CD requires reading from harddisk and writing to CD simultaneously. The writer-software "MakeCD" supports all common IDE/Atapi CD writers.
Not every IDE/Atapi device can handle the high speed of the IDE-fix Express. Older harddisks or single speed CD-Roms would not benefit from the higher controller speed, and some models even refuse to work with express-timing. In such a case, each port can be configured to be non-express separately, so you don't have to make backups of your harddisk when upgrading to a new harddisk.
A special gadget is the diagnosis-software that checks for the correct connection between the IDE-fix adapter and the express-adapter. If the cable has been plugged the wrong way round, the computer will start normally, and nothing will break. Only the diagnosis-software will nag.
