Hmm, it might well be that the external enclosure's ready pulse generator will override the one built in to the drive.

If you find that it stops detecting HD disks, you will need to find which leg of which chip on the enclosure's PCB is connected to the ready signal and disconnect that leg from the PCB.

I decided to just use the drive without a case. 22 years is long enough! I finally restored those old disks. I've written about it here: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...14#post1031614

Enjoy.

I have the internal & external HD floppy. The external drive works the best no problems whatsoever SD & HD auto detected, no drivers required. The internal seems to have read/write errors after a few months when data is written in HD.

Bought an internal HD replacement to my A500 perhaps 15 years ago. It newer was as reliable as the original but does its work somehow - perhaps the diskchange sensor is a bit misaligned.
