So use version 4 then. :-)

Maybe it's a problem with your Fast-RAM? Which slots do you use and how much Fast-RAM?

Well which programs do you get problems with?

One thing to do is to always use handshake when talking to the DSP. This will always work
and should realy be used as it will also make the programs work with any kind of accelerated
falcon. I have talked to a guy which makes music software and they failed on my falcon. When
he added an option to use handshake they all worked! The same problems arrised with Nemesis
on a regular Falcon030.

> - Does someone had made the switch to switch between AB040 and Falcon 030 ?? Does it work well ??

Well Geir (who else?) did it and I think it works just fine.

Take a look at my webpage. There you can find links to most AB040 related stuff.
