Indeed, the support is awesome besides the perfect hardware.

I‘ve read about writing.DSK files back to disk with the M4....
Is there also a solution for the other way? making out of a 3‘‘ disk a .DSK image saving on the M4.
This would be great to make backups of old disks

Try taking a look at the program from @HAL 6128 here : http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/applications/dsk-to-floppy-via-m4-board/

Just exchange two lines in the basic program and you can reverse process.

Still this will just work with standard data and system format disks.

Ideally you would create two blank dsk  images (one system and one data) and make a copy of it depending on the choice of system/data, to the desired new name, before overwriting it with the data from the floppy.

Quite a few have asked for 3D printed case for later revisions of M4 board (v2.4 and v2.5).
Patrick (thanks!) has kindly shared this one for IDC connector:

I got it printed and find it too snug to fit the m4. Back to a bare board for me.

Hello to everyone,


I have ordered a M4 board (v2.5), which can be adapted to work on both CPC old and CPC+ models.


Is there any printed 3D case available for the aforementioned M4 version OR the ones already available fit it as well?


Thanks,
Dimitris/ Voxy

Didn't try to print it myself yet. Do you think it would help scaling it a couple of percent? Most slicers will let you scale it when printing.
