You are buying an assembled and tested Amiga Floppy Drive adapter.
This smaller "Mini" version is intended for direct attachment to the rear of a floppy drive.This version comes with power and drive activity LED indicators installed.
The floppy drives shown in some pictures are for demonstration purposes only and not part of the auction.
This adapter can make many standard PC floppy drives work on an Amiga computer (as DD drives only!).
As shown in the last picture, some drives may not be suitable due to their physical connector layout.
Some drives may be modified by relocating the power connector or simply adding a power cable extension.
I have tested the following drive models as working "out of the box":
- Panasonic JU-256A198PC
- Teac FD-235HF
Working with cable extension:
- Panasonic JU-257A606P
Not suitable due to connector layout:
- Sony MPF920 (check out my other adapters)
required settings jumpers for PC floppy drives are preconnected on the
PCB, but could be modified by cutting traces if required.
The Amiga device selection comes with a jumper to select either DF0 or DF1. Some Amigas require to connect the _MTRX signal from the mainboard
to pin 16 of the adapter's input connector to make anything higher than
DF0 work. Gotek drives or other similar devices without real motor may
not require this signal.
This device will work with any classic Amiga computer (A1000, A500, A600, A1200, A2000, A3000, A4000).
