DraCo Compatibility Experiences

This page is quite simple: Submit your positive experiences with hardware add-ons to your DraCo NLE computer. We know we can't expect every Zorro2 bus card to work, but some will, plus some Amiga-related"plug-in" (serial or parallel port) hardware will work.

This is NOT a moderated page, we'll just have to use the honorsystem for submissions. Please no profanity or other negativecommentary. Mentions of software needed to make the hardwarework would be greatly appreciated, along with WWW or physicaladdress sources.Postings from unverifiable e-mail addresses are subject todeletion. If you submit something and later find it to bein error or misleading, please send a note to me at our feedback page and let me know. I'll try to clean up any problems as I gettime.

"Hi,I have recently purchased Sony VX1000 DV camera (NTSC) and I'm planning to purchase a 060 CB w/ Firewireimmediately. My question is in regards to NTSC and PAL as it turns out ( all of a sudden ) I am moving to Australia(PAL)!Can I go ahead and purchase a NTSC Casablanca to go with my camera (already have) and edit then do a conversionfrom NTSC to PAL if it is to be broadcast in OZtralia? Will there be a loss in quality ?, can it be converted? , is therehardware available for me to convert myself that is affordable?, do you take it somewhere to be done? Does having aIEEE1394 Firewire set up negate this potential situation by being able to direct feed into Pal or NTSC formats? (Am Iway off????) Please enlighten me if you have constructive knowledge or experience to share.I would be very grateful,Thanks in advance,"Soon to be downunder"SteveFull Name of Hardware:"

"Full Name of Hardware: Mustek Paragon 600 (budget SCSI flatbed scanner) did work with my DraCo when I tested it sometime ago. I used it with the ScanTek software, http://home.nuernberg.netsurf.de/wzoehner/scantek.html Did also use an Active external terminator. I've tested the Artec Viewstation 6000+ with ScanQuix and this did not work in DraCo. I'm very interested to hear some scanner success stories! "

"Full Name of Hardware:The I/O-board HyperCOM 3Z works in DraCo as I've been told by a VIDEOTEC memeber. When trying to order one I found out that production had been halted to find a hardware bug, that could freeze up the entire system. This card had 2 serial and one paralell and could be expanded to 4 serial and two paralell. The HyperCOM 4Z should also work as listed on the manufacturers site. It has 4 serial and no paralell. http://www.vmc.de/ Would love to see if anyone has tested the Catweazel board (MK2) in a DraCo. "
