This version comes with power and drive activity LED indicators installed.
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.
The floppy drives shown in some pictures are for demonstration purposes only and not part of the auction.
This adapter can make most standard PC floppy drives work on an Amiga computer (as DD drives only!).
"Mini version 2 " of the adapter will fit most drives, but requires a
few millimeters of space below the drive as it extends downwards. In
most Amiga computers this shouldn't be a problem as the drives are
mounted on stand-offs.
I have tested the following drive models as working "out of the box":
- Panasonic JU-256A198PC
- Teac FD-235HF
- Panasonic JU-257A606P
- Sony MPF920
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 DF0, DF1, DF2 or DF3. 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).
Most games and demos will work fine. No special software or driver is required.
This adapter requires an additional power wire with two female 4-pin connectors.
Check for correct polarity as printed on the adapter, otherwise the device may be damaged.
Another power cable and standard 34-wire ribbon flat cable have to be attached from the Amiga to the adapter.
