Re: MZ-80B project (Floppy Disk I/O Card cloning!)

Hi my friend... Still searching for a good candidate schematic to 'emulate' via fpga design. Ia m thinking of implementig K & P FDC800 card https://original.sharpmz.org/usedskdrives.htm According to datasheet controller chip has the same mapping with original mz80b chip FDD controller So why not?

Hi! Tingo Thank you for a quick response my friend. You are asolutely right about ALL you thioughts, Let me 'walk through' one by one to express my opinion on your thoughts: - mechanical - does the card physically fit into the connector on the machine?

Re: MZ-80B project (Floppy Disk I/O Card cloning!)

Still didn't managed to find an FDD interface card for my 80B. Do you think that an Sharp MZ1E05 will be in any way compatible with MZ80B-FI Sharp MZ80b-FI ? I know that MZ80b-FI card has no eprom and uses in-built IPL routines but do you think the rest of hardware will be compatible? Alex ;)

I know that 80B has its own FDD controller code on board intead if the MZ1E05 on board eprom but as it uses the same chip do you think is will be p...

Re: Unicard - is it possible to get it?

Hlide, what you said is true my friend. I think there is a different approach involving 80B as I the fw already includes FDD support. (there is no eprom on MZ80b floppy card) I own a MZ80B BUT with no FDD controller and I really like to run CP/M on it! I had no luck finding an FDD card so far . ;)
