I got the schematics for Megafile 44, Megafile 60 & SH 205 here. (Copies anyway)

I can scan them, but I can't promise you when, since I got a lot going on right now.

Would be interested as I have a Mega STE with no h/drive (other than the external one I got with it) .. would be nice to put that empty part to some use :)

hi

just plug in a hard disk scsi interface to the other socket on the mega's hdd there is two in and out
you use the software to choose which drive to boot from
or just keep it asside and use the scsi interface....
you can make one for about 50$ £80 inc the drive

salvage old drives from things like mac's and pc's
you can connect ide drives via cartidge port

or internaly on the bus
again there is simple diy boards {few chips} some even have circuits pcb made up to print
look to other hard disk topics for links

some for sale
or ask for an interface in the wanted section

set a max like

i want a scsi interface max=50$

etc...

you need a cable type converter then also some 50pin ribbon
and a power source

i also run the atari from this psu
i use an atx type
there is some info in the faq section about atx use

also ask those guys about atari
they may have a shed full {more than likely}
