Location?
I'm in the North of England (West Yorkshire specifically). But I'd think location was largely irrelevant given the availability of cardboard boxes and the postal service :D
They're quite heavy.. Don't under estimate postage..

Master Compact Floppy Drive

Looking for a black floppy drive for my master compact that will fill the hole fully rather than leave a gap like most normal height drives.

I could print a blanking plate, but would rather have the right drive in there...

As I've not had any chance to work on these for a while due to manic work & family, I figured I may as well publish what I have.

I could do with one if that makes shipping easier? No hurry for it to be delivered to me - happy to wait until we start to go back to normal...

Re: Add a second floppy to Archs without support (i.e. extra Gotek)

Good to know that re A3000s - David Holden’s article, linked to above, doesn’t specifically mention the A3000, presumably for this very reason!

Re: Riscpc internal IDE with only Cdrom - valid config?

Is CDFSSoftATAPI involved when using the Unipod? If not, I'll look to try force loading a later version.

Unlikely to be a power supply issue... The unipod is in the same machine.. I simply move the 40pin cable from the motherboard to the podule.

Not sure on the year.. Will do a bit of research. Only reason I asked as they worked fine on Unipod. Music CDs etc are identified fine on the motherboard IDE, I just can't access any data.. Could it be a speed issue (drive too fast, perhaps)? Not overly bothered but seems a waste to use a Unipod Cha...
