My Fastchip IIe arrived about 10 days ago. Unfortunately what with working 7 days a week, 12 or more hours a day so I haven’t had a lot of time to use it. Tried it with a IIe equipped with a Ramworks with a VGA extender and a superdrive card and that went well. Then, largely because it was sitting closest to the IIe, I tried a SD Disk][ card. There I ran into difficulties. It was in floppy drive mode so I tried setting the slot to normal and tried a different slot. Tried setting the fastchip to 1mhz, That didn’t help but turning off the fastchip did. Tried a Transwarp and the SD Disk][ worked fine with it. Moved the SD Disk][ and fastchip over to another IIe with the same results. Changed the SD Disk][ over to HD emulation and then it worked fine. So a partial incompatibility in that HD emulation works fine and you could use the floppy drive emulation by turning off the fastchip whenever you needed to access the emulated floppy and turning it back on in between.
