How to install SATA 1 TB 3.5" HDD on GVP A500 HD8+?



I am using a GVP 4.13 ROM on my GVP A500 HD8+ and soon I will install an adapter that transfers between 50 pin scsi to normal modern SATA 3.5″ HDD. I want to buy 1 TB HDD from Amazon for 50 bucks only and wish to install it on my GVP ROM 4.13. How do I go about doing it? I want to use SFS file system.

The GVP is a SCSI controller, and thus you cannot directly plug in a SATA drive. You need either a 50 pin SCSI disk or a SCSI-SATA adapter, which is prohibitively expensive.

That said, you don’t really need 1 terabyte of storage in an Amiga 500, and there are solid state solutions you can use instead, based on memory cards. Two popular solutions are SCSI2SD and Aztecmonster.
