Greaseweazle v4.1 Amiga Amstrad, Spectrum
Greaseweazle V4.1 USB Floppy Adapter Flux Reader Writer

Greaseweazle v4.1 allows versatile floppy drive control over USB. By extracting the raw flux transitions from a drive, any disk format can be captured and analysed - PC, Amiga, Amstrad, PDP-11, musical instruments, industrial equipment, and more. The Greaseweazle also supports writing to floppy disks, from a range of image file formats including those commonly used for online preservation (ADF, IPF, DSK, IMG, HFE)

 

Greaseweazle V4.1 is the latest version, updated for mass production and with the following features:

  • Reads and writes 3", 3.5", 5.25", 8" disks (with suitable drive and cable)
  • Buffered outputs, for communicating with older 5.25" and 8" disk drives
  • Integrated power connector for directly powering most 3.5" disk drives
  • Write-enable jumper can be removed for safer preservation of precious vintage disks
  • Supports flippy-modded 5.25" drives
  • Supports Disk-Change detection as used by Rob Smith's integration into the WinUAE Amiga emulator
  • 3 user-definable outputs (eg. 8" interface REDWC signal)
  • 100% factory tested, and tested again by me before shipping

This listing is for the Greaseweazle V4.1 device only. And does not include which you will require:

 
  • A disk drive (for example a PC 3.5" or 5.25" drive)
  • A floppy ribbon cable (typically you want a standard PC cable with 'twist' on pins 10-16, to communicate with a PC floppy drive)
  • Floppy drive power cable, or power supply

Amiga A1200 HDISK/FDISK LED Adaptor
Amiga A1200 HDISK/FDISK LED Adapter
Amiga A1200 HDISK/FDISK LED adapter provides 2 separate inputs to show the activity of and not limited to, Icedrake V4, PiStorm32-Lite SD slot, hard drives or PCMCIA port using the original LED module on the Amiga 1200 LED panel. Signals for the internal HDD and DISK are transmitted as is, also this module corrects the constant LED light that may occur with some SD or CompactFlash cards. There are also LEDs on the module itself that show floppy and hard drive activity. This can be especially useful when the Amiga 1200 is operated without the original keyboard. Configuration  There are a total of 2 pins available on  J3  , which have the following characteristics.
  • A  = HDD input - (output via HDISK LED)
  • B  = FDD input - (output via FDISK LED)
  So for example you want to show the PCMCIA activity, you would connect a wire to the FDD input and any PCMCIA activity will show via the FDISK LED.   NOTE: Soldering skills will be required when connecting 3rd party activity signals to the Amiga A1200 HDISK/FDISK LED adapter, more details to follow.
