Title: Vortex F1-D third drive adapter
Post by: hans on 09:12, 10 July 22
Hello,

I would like to correctly wire up a third drive to my Vortex F1-D controller, but I don't have the original adapter (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Vortex_Disc_Drives#FDA-1_3.22_Drive_Adapter) to do that.  I already know that the third drive is selected by ID3, but there seems to be some other magic going on.  Does anyone here have this adapter and would be willing to send me detailed pictures of the internals?  The pictures in the Wiki show hot snot all over the place, so it is impossible to see how the adapter is wired up.

Thank you!
Hans
