Go Back   Aros and iMica’s can now read/write Amiga floppy disks with PCI Catweasel MK4.

Author: Steve Jones

Date: 22/09/2010 14:39:15

Description: After some time tracking down a suitable developer with the skills needed to carry out this work I finally contacted Ian Gledhill in the New Year and the project for Aros based iMica’s to read and write Amiga floppy disk drives was started.

Please click on the "All Document Attachments" link below to see slide show on Catweasel in use.

Whilst there was a bounty for this work, the hardware was not being supplied and so it never got claimed. So we supplied an iMica Atom with PCI Catweasel MK4 we brought from AmigaKit and a compatible floppy drive in February and this project is now in final testing stage.

This project source code will reside in the Aros source library for all to use and will further support the growing realisation from most Amiga users that Aros is a very viable next generation Amiga platform freely available and running on a large amount of commodity hardware.

I would like to thanks Ian Gledhill for his professional manner and skill in this project and if you would like to beta test this then please PM me or email him at ian.gledhill@btinternet.com or email me at clusteruk@hotmail.com

If you have a Catweasel and this has excited you, please take the time to send a donation to Ian for all his hard work at his paypal account  ian.gledhill@btinternet.com

Finally, there are still some tweaks to finish this but in the end you will be able to run some Amiga 68k programs and games through Janus-UAE. I will have this on show at the Amiga show in Bletchley in June for you all to play with.

Please note this will open another popup window for you to proceed.

All the best

Steve Jones
