    6MB Sram PCMCIA on Amiga 600 will it be able to adress 4mb

    Hello .... i am new on this forum... of course not new with working on a amiga.

    I bought a 600 and want Fastram.... i found a 6MB Compaq Flash Ram PCMCIA card.
    I know the 600 can only adres 4MB through the pcmcia port... can i put the 6MB card in so that it will use 4mb or will the 600 reject the card.

    Thanks for the supp

    I've never tried a card larger than 4MB, so really don't know what will happen. If it is a 16bit SRam pcmcia card then in theory it should work with the a600. But you won't know until you do.

    Harrison is right. Try it and see. You won't do any damage by trying & the Amiga was always a clever computer with regard to this kind of thing. I've seen 8mb only A1200 cards take a 16 and show only 8mb & that's 32Bit memory. Like wise, the A4000T takes 4 x 4Mb Simms on the Mobo, but 2 x 8Mb ones work in alternate slots. Good luck fella.
