8″ floppy restoration – power and testing imaging disks #Floppy @AkBKukU
TechTangents on Twitch installs a refurbished power supply into a rack of two 8″ floppy drives.
I got the 8″ disk drives working with my KryoFlux and was able to image a single sided disk with CP/M-86 1.1NA on it! This may not be a perfect image since it’s my first try, but it is some pretty great progress!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
