The Amiga Hardware Dumping Status Page

The Amiga was... no, IS a wonderful piece of equipment and is very nicely emulated by WinUAE and hopefully will be more completely emulated by MESS in the future.

There are a couple of great Amiga Hardware sites on the net, namely The Amiga Hardware Database, and The Big Book Of Amiga Hardware that show almost every add-in ever made! There's even a site with many of the driver install disks for those pieces of hardware.

However, there seems to be a lack of a hardware ROM archive for the software that was held in EPROMs on the vast array of add-in cards available for the Amiga series of computers.

This is a very important task if the Amiga is going to live on in emulation, as well as being able to repair these circuit boards with backups of the EPROMs, should they go bad for some reason.

The solution, of course, is simply to back-up the EPROMs, but the task is very daunting when you realise the number of add-ons that were available and the cut-throat approach to getting hold of them at places like eBay.

Hence this page is my attempt to back-up some of the EPROMs on some of the more common add-ons that were available in the hope of preserving them for the future :-)

Please note the following.....
  • If you would like to donate a ROM to the archive or loan an Amiga add-on card or other piece of hardware for archival purposes, contact me.
  • There is no wanted list, anything not listed here is wanted. However I appreciate that most of the hardware is treasured and not likely to come across my path, so what you see here is what you get.
  • Many of these were obtained on loan from local friends, although I do own some of these listed items (marked with an *). However, none of this stuff is for sale, unless noted :-)
