HXc Floppy Cable

stulish:
Hi guys,

could someone tell me what cable i need to connect a HXc floppy emulator to my CPC6128.  or if there is a component number (RS or Farnell etc), so i can make one.

I have only just ordered the HXc board so i have some time to sort the cable out.

Thanks

Stu :D

Hi,
    just get yourself an old PC floppy cable and a 36way Centronics connector with Crimp terminals and make yourself one of these: DIY:Floppy Drives - CPCWiki

TFM:
You can use any cable which is usable to a 3.5" B-floppy.

Isn't that wrong? No need to cut the red wire. There's space enough ;-)

Bryce:
No, on the plus wire 2 has to go to cavity 1 of the Port, so red has to go. Check the pinouts for yourself. I have my cable here lying in front of me, connected to my HxC for years (working).
