Sakura (ANF)

Preorder: New external floppy drive
Under the title link, at RetroAmi an external floppy drive developed by Sakura (producer of PCMCIA-SRAM-card for the Amiga 600/1200) can be ordered. The pictures of the drive show the non-painted prototype. The final, black Gehäuse case additionally will have included some minor changes.

The floppy drive is compatible to the external ports of all Amiga models but does not support "looping through". That means if you use other external drives of different producers, you can only use it as last drive.

The preordered model is based on a modified PC-drive but is "fully compatible with 880kB DD Amiga floppy disks". For financial reasons there will be not a HD-drive with modified 1,44-MB-PC mechanics, but the platine has been prepared for it. You can upgrade an Amiga-HD floppy drive for using HD-diskd (1,76 MB) on your own with a jumper.

As preorder, the floppy drive costs about 47 Euro (195 Złoty). Later the product will be more expensive. It will be delivered by the end of April. (snx) (Translation: dr)

MorphOS: exFAT file system
Rupert Hausberger has ported the exFAT file system (Wikipedia) to MorphOS. It is not an adaption of the version of AmigaOS 4 ( reported), but a direct and completely native port.

Rupert Hausberger wrote: "Due to license restrictions, the version with write-support is not included as a binary-file. For testing and private use, you may compile the version with write-support by removing __READ_ONLY__ in the makefile. See the source-code distribution of this release." (snx) (Translation: dr)
