Floppy Power Cables?

Hello

I've just purchased a SD Floppy Emulator Rev C BLUE EDITION from Lotharek.

All working nicely. The problem is that I want it to replace my A500 Floppy drive. In order for it to sit in the floppy drive bay and so I can have access to the SD card slot, I need an extension lead for the floppy power.

I can't find a floppy POWER lead longer than 14cm (20cm would be ideal). Anyone know where I can find one? Would a PC floppy lead work the same?

I can find the floppy ribbon cable on AmigaKit, so that's no problem.

You'll probably have to make one up yourself, buy one of these and solder/crimp connector block it together:

Hi Echelon,

It's difficult to buy extension leads for 3½-inch floppy drive power connectors, so I would advise you to cut your original floppy power lead and graft some extension wires into it. It should be possible to make a neat job of it with a soldering iron and some sleeving or insulating tape.
