HDD/SSD Installation

After installing the vampire card, there is no space available to put the CF card anymore. I am using normal 5cm hdd cable and CF adapter.

Are there any good solutions available, without cutting holes in my Amiga?

I have been thinking about that, but I believe it is at the same height as the vampire card.

What AMIGA model do you use?

In the A500 you have many options
a) Fold the cable once to make an "S"
b) Open the plastic cover of the Expansion port and place CF card there - then you can even swap card easily
c) Use a 90 degree connector and place card directly on Vamp

By the sounds of it, if he is saying that the CF adapter is the same height as the Vampire, he might be using an A600. If that is the case he could try this:

  I got one of those for the A600 and it's very handy as it keeps the card out away from the Vampire. The CF card ends up sitting just above the PCMCIA card slot without actually touching it.
