Started to build a Drawbridge

Last Updated or created 2022-04-26

For my amiga i started to build a floppy disk reader/writer using a arduino.
I found a superb project by rob smith.
It uses only a arduino pro and a FTDI USB to serial breakout board, to raw read and write disks.
I wanted to convert my own created amiga disks to PC image to use in a emulator like vice.

I’m not going to copy his website, with all instructions. Only my personal experiences.

Starting with … don’t use a IDE cable, and start soldering .. it is a diskdrive cable .. connector doesn’t fit! ..

Getting components and flashing arduino … no brainer
