Thread: Arduino Amiga Floppy Disk Reader/Writer (V2)

  1. #161

    Default Did I break it?

    If the ribbon cable was plugged into the floppy drive the wrong way around would that damage the drive or the arduino.

    I've put cable wrong way plenty of times, at least for me it has not damaged devices.

    Thanks for the reassurance. After finding a python version of Robert’s Amiga reader and using that on Linux I think it’s finally all working. The down side is I only manage to read data from one of my twenty Amiga disks. When I tried reading the same disk later it didn’t work. I’ll try again with another disk drive when I can get hold of one. Thanks all for answering my frustrations over such a long time.

    What python version are you referring to? AFAIK there is no such thing available. Only python version that I've seen is the forked pyAccess1581-project for C64 .D81 image reading which uses the same hardware, but that project will _not_ make working Amiga .ADF's.

    Oh that’s interesting. Yes I used the pyAccess1581 project. I hadn’t realised the output files weren’t usable ��

    Hi Jonni,

    I'd like to upgrade mine to v2.4 https://amiga.robsmithdev.co.uk/ADFReaderWriter24.zip Do I have to put a jumper on the "flash" pins before uploading v2.4 sketch file with Arduino IDE? . if not was it the purpose of the Flash pins? Thanks!

    That is just legacy, you don't need to put any jumpers to pins, you can just upload with arduino IDE without any modifications.
