Amiga disks on PC: ADF-Drive 0.625
ADF-Copy is an USB adapter which, connected to a ordinary PC disk drive, can read and write Amiga disks - provided that the disks are not copy-protected. The floppy port is connected to a Teensy 3.2 micro controller by using some jumpers controlled by the firmware of the micro controller.

Changes in version 0.625:
  • Time and Date for Amiga Files and the ADF Image
  • watchdog timer: resets the microcontroller after 8 seconds a fatal error occured
  • the internal LED of the Teensy used for signalling errorcodes:
    • 3 flashes then pause: read error
    • 5 flashes then pause: write error
    • slow flashing: out of memory error (might also cause a reset by watchdog)
    • fast flashing: no floppy drive detected or hardware error
  • read / write errors are also displayed as a message as the "DF0:" drivename
  • formatting of HD Disks with the MTP interface should work now, HD support is still very fragile
  • improved error handling
  • bumped up the read and write retries
  • improved compatibility with Windows 7
