Hi!


Recently I bought a 3.5" floppy drive B for my good CPC, but it has the Ready signal constantly set ON, which is a real pain for the software I use. I can see that because the two last wires on the flat cable are soldered to each other.


The floppy is an Alps DF354H168G drive. I couldn't find any data sheet in the net.


How can I activate it's Ready signal? Does it have one at all?


Any help is appreciated.

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.
