USB floppy drive emulator

Hi there,

Anybody tried this floppy emulator with a real miga?

Don't know if it will support the RY/DC or if it's a basic PC drive...

Like me he probably wanted to pay a sensible price

I asked the sellers and they said No anyway (no also for Atari ST)

The guy has put a lot of time,money and effort to create this board. I for one think it's worth the money.

Would you contact Jens and ask him to charge less for his products?

It's an interesting debate here...
Developpement time vs cost or cost vs number of sales...
A stripped down version should be available or at least a PC/MAC/Atari/Keyboards compatible version (non Shugart interface) to enlage intended customer target.

I really believe that this floppy emulator will have an Amiga compatible firmware soon. He should think about this or his product will simply fade out as soon as this one will steal his market.
