SDBox: access microSD cards on the parallel port

Published 12.07.2020 - 17:23 by osz

This message is not really new, but it has so far been lost to us. However, since it is a really exciting project and one or the other may not have noticed it yet, we would like to include it in our news. Better late than never.

Jorgen Bilander from Sweden has published his project for addressing microSD cards on the Amiga's parallel port on GitHub. With the help of an Arduino Nano V3 and a microSD adapter for the SPI interface, a so-called SDBox can be built together on the board developed by Jorgen Bilander. The whole thing should work from OS 1.3, although not all AmigaOS versions have been explicitly tested. If you have access to a 3D printer, you can also download the 3D model for a suitable housing in this project repository.

DIY-Floppy adapter for external drives (Still WIP!)

Published 12.07.2020 - 17:08 by osz

The GitHub user RetroNynjah published his project to connect external floppy disk drives to the Amiga's 23-pin D-Sub connector. The project is still under development (Work In Progress). So far the adapter has only been tested with the Gotek drive but in theory it should also work with real floppy drives, as the description says.
