Quote from: Bryce on 09:23, 17 November 14Well the CPC screen is/was 4:3, so the aspect ratio always fills the screen as it would on a CPC.Bryce.
Quote from: opqa on 21:27, 16 November 14.... and IIRC the standard CPC only uses 12V to power the 3.5" drive motor, not for anything else. ...
Quote from: TFM on 17:48, 17 November 14Actually the 3" drive of the CPC oG needs 12 Volt. But not a 3.5" drive of the Plus 3" drive.
Quote from: Jckf on 17:59, 17 November 14I'm guessing he made a typo. No "standard" CPC came with a 3.5" drive, as far as I know. Some replace their 12v 3" drives with 5v 3" plus drives, but I hear those have an issue where the head will move while it's still writing unless you are careful with your code. Ordered a step-up circuit for my own machine to keep the stock drive.

Quote from: Bryce on 20:34, 17 November 14I hope you have a good 5V supply and direct wiring to the step-up. A DC/DC conversion to 12V 750mA (about what these old drives pull) is going to pull about 2A on the 5V rail.Bryce.
