Well, I have a very similar setup, but I can't run my AB at 40MHz for
more than an hour before it starts to crash. And SCSI is definelately
a no-no in 40MHz. So I'm running it in 32MHz with no problems at all.

It's not only the drive that can be a problem, but the DMA in the
Falcon. It sounds like your Falcon needs fine-tuning to work perfectly
in 40MHz.

Ditto. It could also be that CAF doesn't like accelerated DSPs. Again,
try running at 32MHz and see what happens.

Definelately a VDI-problem.

Yes, running NVDI in ST-RAM only might improve things.
