If there will be no Kryoflux floppy drives, what is the most reliable floppy drive for dumping 3.5 DOS games from 90's?
Can I dump Amiga games using PC floppy drive?
the Amiga 500 HD and DD Floppy discs. One Floppy Drive could be better than other.
I can see this in the 3,5" compatible Thread viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4
I read ever only by normal PC Floppy Disc Drives but what happens, if i use a Amiga Floppy Drive?
I own a Amiga 500 and can take out the Drive from it and put it on the Kryoflux Board? Yes or no?
Will the original Amiga Floppy Drive work with Kryoflux Board? I think, it should be better solution,
if i use the original Amiga floppy Drive for saving Amiga Floppy Discs, because this drive is used
for reading and writing Amiga Discs. I am right or not? Can i do so or is there some compatible Problem?
The Floppy Drives aren't so different between PC or Amiga.
The Controller only said, which Floppies they can read or not. I found no answer for this question.
I read ever only to use a PC Floppy Drive.
But why not use the original Amiga 500 Floppy Drive with the Kryoflux Board?
PC floppy drives answer to drive select 1 (DS1), internal Amiga drives answer to DS0
pin 34 on the connector is used for disk change on the PC, disk ready on the Amiga
pin 2 on the connector is used for high-density detection on the PC, disk change on the Amiga
amiga HD drives run on half speed whenever you insert a HD floppy to keep the bus timing for DD
I guess you have a Chinon FZ-357A which is different to the usual FZ-357! The "A" indicates it is a dual speed drive which was a especially built for the amiga!
So it will be much easier to get your hands on a used normal PC drive (HD of course) than doing all the modification...
Ok, i must take out of the box my old PC Floppy Drives.
I am really lucky, that i never drop my old good working PC Harware in the garbage.
So i must check out, which PC Floppy Drive Models i own and how they are working
with the Kryoflux Board. So i don't open my Amiga 500. I will not destroy or break
my Amiga 500 Hardware.
