So there are currently no CF controller cards in production?

Hi guys and gals,

 

I just bought an Apple IIGS, keyboard, mouse, and monitor...but I am supprised to find no CF or SD controller cards currently available.  CFFA3000, for instance, is unavailable.

 

Does anyone know a good controller card in production/where I could find one not in production?  I don't want to do the SCSI to external hard solution if humanly possible.

 

Thanks for your help,

Will

I'm not too familiar with it, but it looks like ReactiveMicro's interface is in stock.

I have one, it works well as

I have one, it works well as a hard drive replacement.  Extremely fast.  I have the //e version and even in a IIgs (the IIgs ROM is supposed to be even faster), it is way faster than a hard drive.

You might also find the BMOW

You might also find the BMOW FloppyEmu of interest.  It is different than the MicroDrive/Turbo.  I have both, and they are useful for different purposes.  The FloppyEmu can also emulate a SmartPort hard drive on a IIgs.
