Your Amstrad CPC is showing a “Disc missing” error when you try to load a disc? Then normally it is time to change the drive belt of your disk drive. There are already some nice tutorials on how to change the drive belt of an Amstrad CPC, but Xyphoe recorded a video where he changes the drive belt of an Amstrad CPC 6128. So if you need to change your drive belt have a look at it.

SyX and TotO are hard working to get a new mass storage device ready for your Amstrad CPC. It is compatible with SymbOS and BonnyDOS and it will additionally come with an own ROM (ACMEDOS), which allows you to access the mass storage from BASIC via RSX commands. If you already own the Mother X4 board, you can just plug it into it and use it on your CPC. You can preorder it for 24,90 EUR in TotO’s webshop.

Kangaroo and Nilquader released a new hardware for the Amstrad CPC, which is available for ordering now: the MegaFlash NG ROM box. It is based on the MegaFlash ROM box by Bryce and additionally features a reset button and a “pause” switch. But the best above all – it is available as a construction kit, which means, it will bring the “maker spirit” to you :). Order your kit, heat your soldering iron, have fun with building this new hardware for the Amstrad CPC and after all of that – enjoy your new hardware, e.g. with the games of the 16k ROM competition on the real machine :D. You can order the MegaFlash NG from the Spielquader shop for 24,95 EUR (look out for the “Ready” T-Shirts as well :-)).
