|| Amiga disks on PC: DrawBridge 2.7|
Robert Smith has updated his project 'DrawBridge' (Disk Reader and Writer Bridge)for read Amiga disks using a common PC disk drive. According to the author, additional to improved diagnostics, improved reading/writing, extra features and new UI version 2.7 mainly offers HD floppy disk support. All this work has fed back into WinUAE meaning that WinUAE (and soon Amiberry) will also support real HD disks in real-time.
As he stated, "the official WinUAE will support this in v4.9 when it’s released via a plug-in (FloppyBridge) from my site. That plug-in gives you a few more options to increase speed."
Besides, it is possible to be placed on a waiting list: Smith sells his little board for USB Slimline disk drives for 25 British Pound plus shipping. The boards are fully compatible to Arduino Software (IDE) which enables future firmware updates.
All documents of Smith's project are available on GitHub under a free license. (dr)
