Quote from: Devilmarkus on 02:36, 11 February 10I really find this discussions about "destroying" PC hardware by connecting a floppy-drive to it very amusing...(did you ever connect a floppy cable wrong sided and did your PC burn then?)Think otherwise:In the 80s many people had a CPC 464 with DDI-1 Floppy-Controller.About 60% of them connected a Amiga- or PC floppy to it and had fun with 3,5" floppy on their CPC.So, why not connect a 3" drive to PC?The DDI-1 controller has the same pins than your PC FDC! Only because the disk itself is 3" ?!!?The only thing you should regard is to disconnect the 5v plug coming from 3" drive's power supply.
Quote from: Cholo on 18:34, 15 February 10So what plug needs to be unplugged before hooking up to a pc? and is it the whole plug or just one cable?
Quote from: Devilmarkus on 03:02, 16 February 10...It's the smallest plug with only 2 wires. (red / black)It powers the DDI1 controller with 5v.(you can power the DDI1 also from CPC side. Simply shorten the contacts of C115)

Quote from: Devilmarkus on 09:54, 18 February 10Hmmm this should also work when you don't unplug the connector.It's only for safety.
