'Losing' an Amiga 1200 68040 accelerator. When I got the card, I didnt have a A1200 - so its stored somewhere.

Also ripped a few keys off C64/VIC-20 whist they were in storage.

Its exactly the same method as the CPC6128. Works great. Had my +3 at Spectrum 30 running with the HXC Emulator. No issues at all.

You can also do the A:/B: jumper swap too.

You need a 1A PSU at least. Or attach keyboard, mouse etc via a powered USB hub.

A Kryoflux courtesy of Christian Barstch.  Good bloke to chat to too about the old days of XCopy and his various trips to Anguila as a nipper when he was working for Cachet after school.  All because he sent in a list of 'how to copy game X using these parameters' and Cachet hired him.

The Kryoflux is a great piece of kit. I was using it to backup some Apple ][ disks the other day.
