Title: 6128 disc not receiving power - what are the alternatives?
Post by: banana on 17:38, 02 April 21
Someone I know Is selling an Amstrad CPC 6128 with a disc drive that is broken and doesn't receive power. I'm not technically savvy, so I wont try to fix it. Is there an alternative from any other port that I can use an SD card type storage for this? The cheaper the better  ;)

Almost all other options: 3in Disk, HxC, Gotek only need 5V so they would work. Alternatively there are a few options such as the M4 which use the expansion port.

Thanks! I'm not sure the 5v to the disk is working though.

Hi.
Send @Duke (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1624) a pm if you want an M4.


I have one, and they are awesome!  :D

Can it both load and save to SD?
