Amiga disks on PC: DrawBridge 2.8.8 / FloppyBridge 1.2
Robert Smith's project "DrawBridge" (Disk Reader and Writer Bridge) uses like the similar ADF Drive a microcontroller - in this case an Arduino board - to read and write Amiga floppies with a connected standard PC floppy drive. By means of the plugin FloppyBridge, WinUAE is also officially supported since version 4.9.0.

DrawBridge has been updated to version 2.8.8 providing the following changes:
  • Added support for reading and writing track 82 and 83 (firmware update needed too, not all drives support this anyway)
  • Fixed a mistake in diagnostics suggesting pin A0 was write protect, it's A1!
  • Now hides any CH340 com ports from the list as they're incompatible anyway
  • Fixed compiling under Linux
Changes of the latest version 1.2 of FloppyBridge:
  • Added no-click disk check when it has to be done manually
  • Added support for tracks 82 and 83 if supported by the drive (firmware update needed for DrawBridge)
  • Updated Greaseweazle driver to also support Shugart interfaces
  • Some cosmetic fixes
Prior installation of the new DrawBridge firmware 1.9.25 is required. (dr)
