|| Amiga disks on PC: DrawBridge 2.8.5 (update)|
Robert Smith's project 'DrawBridge' (Disk Reader and Writer Bridge) for reading Amiga floppies using a standard PC floppy drive is officially supported since the recently released WinUAE 4.9.0. In addition, Smith has made other changes with the new version 2.8.4: Among other things, IPF and SCP files can now be written to floppy disks, HD disks are supported, and reading and writing in general has been improved.
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.
Update: (21.12.2021, 05:45, dr)
Meanwhile version 2.8.5 is available which adds a warning if known applications are running that may be using the serial port. (dr)
