I recently required an Electron Plus 3 in good and original condition and have a few questions:
- The secondary floppy drive connector on the back of the Plus 3, has no indication on which side (left or right) pin 1 is. The manual also doesn't tell this. So on which side is pin 1 (when looking from the back of the Plus 3 to the connector)?
The Plus 3 came with the original User Guide which included a separate, single, double sided sheet titled: "Electron Plus 3 User Guide Errata". On this sheet, under "Installation", it says (I quote):
Really (improve performance)? Can't be true, can it?You should have a cream-coloured self adhesive label, which must be fixed to the Electron before attaching the Plus 3.
This label is made from a metallic substance, and its purpose is to provide an electromagnetic field between the Electron and the Plus 3.
This will improve the performance of your Plus 3.
- Does anyone have a picture of that cream-coloured self adhesive label? Have never seen one, just being curious.
- Is the power supply powerful enough to power two more modern (PC) floppy drives (assuming the internal drive is disconnected)?
