Whilst in a standard A3010, adding an IDE podule to it is a simple matter of plugging one into the 8-bit podule expansion sockets on the motherboard, it becomes much more difficult where the A3010 has been upgraded with an ARM3 processor on a daughter board.

The photo below illustrates how the IDE podule overlaps the Adelaide board with its original ARM2 chip in place.

So when the ARM2 has been replaced with a socket, the ARM3 daughterboard cannot be fi
