Quote from: CPCIak on 17:10, 03 December 09... These specific 3,5" disc drives are sold for about 40EUR at ebay - quiet expensive
Quote from: redbox on 16:04, 10 September 10I've just got round to looking into developing a Windows version of the parallel transfer (initially PC -> CPC) utility but have some problems...
Quote from: andycadley on 02:25, 11 September 10 I seriously doubt it's worth doing anymore, to be honest. Finding a PC with a parallel port is near impossible these days and even most 'parallel' adapters are only usable for printers as they don't provide a full parallel interface. And with the HxC interface, it's a lot easier and quicker to transfer data via sdcard.

Quote from: awergh on 09:23, 11 September 10Not everyone has can use the HxC interface, I have 2 464s and no DDI-1 so parallel seems like the solution to me,not to mention I have lots of computers with a parallel port, I have 7 in this room although I would probably just use PCPARA under DOS because it isn't that hard but I would probably use a Windows utility if it existed.
Quote from: steve on 15:17, 11 September 10If you want to transfer software from PC to CPC you might be able to connect your PC sound output to the CPC's tape input so it thinks your PC is a tape drive.It might even be possible to increase the transfer speed since CD/MP3 transfers are faster than the normal cassette loading speed.
Quote from: ynot.zer0 on 17:25, 11 September 10I used to have a dedicated 486 PC with Parallel port and MS-DOS just for doing transfers to the CPC. Sadly that machine died, so I "borrowed" my wifes PC (Pentium something or other), wiped XP off of it, put MS-DOS onto it and I now use that as it also has a proper parallel port. (Yes, my wife did find out and I had to buy her a new machine)
Quote from: ynot.zer0 on 17:25, 11 September 10I found that Windows XP and upwards put driver layers between the OS and the hardware, therefore not letting software directly access the parallel port unless it goes via their driver.
