Looks like a round C64C power connector, I have a 64 PSU but no CD32 PSU to compare . . .

That's amazing, boxed software from 1993. Nice going man, jealous. What where some of the best titles for the Amiga ?

Hmm, for me it was Alien Breed, Chaos Engine, UFO: Enemy Unknown, Skidmarks, Super Stardust.... the list goes on.

Some CD32s had a 'C65' power supply. The C65 was going to be the next upgrade of the C64 hardware (similar to an Amiga500).

Since you've got a CD32 then you'll be interested to know that there are CD compilations floating around the net that contain hundreds of pre-installed games on a self bootable CD made specifically for a CD32 (PAL only I think).

Google search for 'cd32-200' (that is the best of them) or torrent search.
More details: CD32-200 Review.

It's the original PSU, you can see it under my desk next to a pile of Amiga magazines



The dual monitors are both displaying Pinball Illusions running on the CD32,
but this setup is an Amiga 500 connected serially to the CD32 allowing CD access from Workbench (although painfully slow) !
No Amiga A590 harddrive at this point, but I did own a few at different times.

On the right is a genuine Street Fighter II arcade cabinet board that could also
run on dual monitors (perfect when they were sitting side by side on the arcade desk

Note the mobile phone in purple leather case which I think is an Erricson analogue.. the phone is up to date for the era the pic was taken
(the computer hardware at this point was not current since the first Playstation was available)

This is the back of my older Brother's head... I'm much older than this now haha!



Oh yeah.. nice little tidbit.. You can burn Amiga CD32 CDs and run them on the console without any modification,
but compiling your own CDs to run is another issue.

I pulled mine out this weekend (i have no controller i think i lent that to a mate and never saw it again). It boots fine and it got a little rusty in the cupboard for serveral years. The EXP port has no cover as the SX-1 Expansion was on it when i got it. It took a hour or so to get the SX-1 to boot into workbench, i suspect it's maybe a little faulty. But it all runs, i couldnt play any 32 games as i didn't have enough buttons to play any 32 games lol (used a SMS controller).

SO i am going to offload this to someone who wants it not sure how much it's worth though. I will miss it, but i need to clear out my life haha . I dont have the time to play with this stuff anymore.

Lol, Those Magazine cover CDs always left me pissed that I couldn't
get hold of the entire game, even if I had the money, without ordering from the UK or something and paying a fortune.

That was cool six years ago, but surely you're sick of this old junk by now.
Help me help you.

An A3000 sold for $300 last week on Gumtree (Alexandria hills),
and the A600 for $150 could still be there.

I'm not after those... I could have easily been first for either of those

I could go a CD32, still kicking myself I didn't buy one of the new in box ones that were floating around on eBay a few years back.

Got 2 now, enough for me, but aiming to reproduce an IDE expansion,
which will put a console at risk.
